Documentary Project: Glass

A tribute to the 1958 Dutch film by director and producer Bert Haanstra of the same name, I chose to create a rhythmic pentameter across this short documentary.

Produced by Visia Studios and shot, edited and directed by Michael Firus, this film documents a hot and fast day at a local glass blowing studio.

Filming the fascinating glass blowing process

The concept of rhythm is most certainly pertinent to glass blowing. The teamwork and graceful coordination of the blowers is akin to a ballet; one of heat, metal and “a living material” – as one of the glass blowers puts it.
