This video follows Alex Bishop through the six month process of building an exquisite gypsy jazz guitar from scratch. In that time, the UK based production team Contra shot upwards of 10 hours of footage, which editor Will Hammond cut down into a finely-tuned three-minute film. His process for doing so – strangely enough – mirrors the process of building a guitar. It's slow, methodical, and the beauty lies in the details.
