Made by Hand / No 5 The Bike Maker from Made by Hand on Vimeo. This is a great video. Ezra is not only incredibly frank and honest about his circuitous path to bike building but as you’ll see by exploring his site, Fast Boy Cycles, he’s one heck of a creative person who knows [...]

Every now and then a process video comes along that’s incredible and this one certainly fits the bill. The Phillips Brothers Mill is a historic, family-run steam powered saw mill near Redding, California that makes custom boxes. That sawed-off pickup for firewood delivery is just my kind of vehicle.

Handmade Portraits: Liberty Vintage Motorcycles from Etsy on Vimeo. I love this guy. [via Devour]
Bert Stephani does a video review of the Fuji X100s in Brussels. A very nice discussion and tour through the city shooting two women in various settings. His use of a small corded off-camera flash is brilliant. [via Zapong]
I posted about The Vivian Maier Photography Project before but this video is the trailer for the documentary on her that’s coming out this year. It looks fantastic. [via Scott James]
Whether or not the DSLR is dead, Zack Arias’s enthusiasm is contagious. Yes, he may be prone to hyperbole but so what? Who isn’t when they love a new gadget? Dig the dumbek playing that happens at about the 3 minute mark.
This is a great behind the scenes look at Christopher Wahl, one of the top portrait photographers shooting now. The piece by 16×9 is great as is Wahl’s work. The last piece of the show is on swelling ball bearings, another topic unrelated. [via PetaPixel]
This is a wonderful look into the life (and house) of artist Gary Baseman. I’ve been following his graphical work for many years and no doubt some seeing this will recognize certain characters from illustration work he’s done for alternative and mainstream magazines. The retrospective he’s talking about will be at the Skirball Cultural Center [...]
This is what Ron Johnson (who I have great respect for) should have done at JC Penny. [via Devour]
There’s lots of funny dubbing up on the web these days but this one is very well done, funny, and SFW.
HELLO Europe! from Senne Dehandschutter on Vimeo. Hello Europe looks like a great idea and if they pull it off no doubt other places will get folded in. [via wimp.com]
This is an incredible segment from a larger series on wildlife in Antarctica. Zoom it out, the cinematography is incredible. More here: EarthTouch: Antarctica series. [via The Kid Should See This]
3 Tricks For Your Impossibly Small Film Crew from Vimeo Video School on Vimeo. This is great. I don’t shoot video but this makes me want to try it. Very well produced how-to on doing low tech video shooting. [via Devour]
Precut – Modern Japanese Timber Construction from BAKOKO on Vimeo. Great piece on automated milling of post and beam lumber in Japan at Core77: Check out this CNC machine. His name is Yoshi.
This is a demo of a knot I use every now and then, the sheet bend. Very useful for tying two different diameter size ropes together in a way that’s easy to untie after a load has been applied. Most of the every day knots I use are up there with instructions and videos. Excellent [...]
Jesse Freidin is a most excellent dog photographer.
This is some of the most amazing beaver video you’ll ever see. BrianKGoingWild filmed this beaver lodge construction in the pond behind his house in Canada. We’ve only seen the beaver at Pine Swamp once and it was thrilling. No way did we get this close. This is absolutely spectacular footage. [via wimp.com]
Vincent Talleu shows us the process of making croissants and other French pastries. The video quality on this isn’t as good as his Bakery Work (bread baking) video but it’s still fascinating to see bakery work on this scale, and Vincent is a character.
Great French ad for Le Trèfle by Leo Burnett Agency, France.
This is an incredible invention: Plug Automatic Link into your car’s data port and it shares all kinds of data on your car’s health and your driving habits with an app on your smartphone. You can find out if your car or phone is supported here (you don’t need to go through with the pre-order). [...]
