A reminder that bicycles are made…that they aren’t merely “things” we buy in a store.
Filmmaker Michael John Evans sets out to visually portray “the zone” which one enters when their craft is honed.
Sean Walling, owner of Soulcraft, builds top notch custom steel bicycle frames. This short film documents Sean’s fabrication methods: a well choreographed dance of experience and muscle memory producing a seemingly effortless ode to process.
From Steel: invites the viewer into Sean’s machine shop for an up close and personal look at the work that results in yet another awesome Soulcraft.
Musical score provided by the internationally praised duo, Mattson 2. Courtesy of Galaxia Records.
