MAKING A UKE - A FILM SHORT
A film about Peter Hurney- luthier, artist, and craftsman of Berkeley California, and his ukulele workshop. This film follows Peter making a soprano ukulele from start to finish, set to a score by the fabulous ukulele player and composer Steven Strauss. The film contains no dialogue- but relies on visual details and music, made with the intent to celebrate the process and beauty of making something by hand. We also take a side trip to Peter's living room to catch a glimpse of Hurney's other art works, Automata Sculptures. With guest appearance of Steven Strauss trying out Pohaku ukuleles. Film was produced and directed by David Silberberg.
