Friday Inspiration. “Josh Vogel”, by The Scout.

Here is a little Friday inspiration from The Scout. This is a 5 plus minute short film about Josh Vogel, a woodworker from Kingston, New York. This film is as much about who Josh Vogel is, as it is about his philosophy on the idea that turning wood is a reductive process that in essence is a step back in time. As the wood loses a layer, the years are taken away. This abstract idea is a constant that Josh is very aware whenever his chisel touches the bark and steady peels away the rings of time. The film has an absolutely wonderful look and pace to it. One that matches Vogel’s affect and demeanor so well.
