Artisan Spotlight : Great Wooden Boats July 01 2013

We want to celebrate the skilled craftsmanship of artisans creating work in an old-world style with a weekly spotlight. This video was shot with a RED Epic by cinematography trailblazer, Philip Bloom. It tells the inspirational story of passionate expert boat builder and carpenter, Mike Kiefer. As the skilled owner of the Great Lakes Boat building Company he has been producing small wood boats since 1985. Mike began building boats for himself as a hobby, necessity being the mother of invention. Soon word spread and his reputation as a gifted craftsman began to set sail and he started building boats by hand for others.
