Alma Flamenca – The Art of Making: Making a Flamenco Guitar

Making a Flamenco Guitar. We love videos about music and making instruments and this vid by Deep Green Sea is another beautiful piece to add to our list. Mixing art with measurement and sound, they not only show the detail of the craft, but they overlay wonderful descriptive text and geometric elements in the shots, too. 

The Art of Making series condensed 299 hours of blood, sweat, and tears into a three-minute film, highlighting the craftsmanship behind guitar maker Vassilis Lazarides’ handmade Flamenco guitars.

More instruments being made: Cymbals, a Steel Drum, and a Violin.
