The Metalsmith from Dan McComb on Vimeo.
We've featured filmmaker Dan McComb's work before, and there is a reason. He's an amazing (truly amazing) visual story teller. His latest documentary, The Metalsmith, is captivating from nearly the first sentence of dialogue. The story follows metalsmith, Andy Cooperman, and his extremely heart felt story of nearly going blind and almost losing his ability to create. This powerful and emotional story is expertly juxtaposed with footage of Cooperman working in his studio and rising above personal tragedy to continue the work that drives him forward. This is a brilliant bit of storytelling. Our favorite line at the end has to be, “Making is manifesting something from something that wasn't.” Fantastic!
