This is a gorgeous short film about Neil Youngberg, a maker and metal fabricator. From Vita Brevis Films:
In this short-form profile, VitaBrevisFilms interviews Neil Youngberg for the beginning exploration of our “Professional” series. Shot on location in Neil’s metal fabrication shop, the 3rd generation craftsman gives a sincere overview of his life’s work, dispensing hard-worn wisdom while illuminating the sobering realities of the role private business plays in an ever changing economic landscape. A deeply personal project for all involved, this on-going series seeks to shed-light on forgotten trades and practices in an evolving America.
This film is beautifully done — can’t wait to see the others in this series!
