A nice video with our Melvin Goldsmith

Knowing Melvin a little bit from correspondence, I would have expected something more along the lines of Goodfellow's chainsaw carving video.
Nevertheless, it's at a very high level.
Before you criticize a man you should walk a mile in his shoes.

I very much like the attitude towards learning.

Nice to see your shop. Also nice to see your face and hear your voice. Face time often doesn't happen in this electonic universe. Even on film, its refreshing.

My Grandfather was probably my biggest influence when I was a child , and moments like these bring back memories

what was that interesting color you were mulling there in the vid Melvin?
Hi Oded, That was the redundant remnants of the colour varnish I used on the viola in the shoot. I thought it might be nice visually for the camera operator. The base is a Marciana type varnish. I add colourants and pigments once the ground is fully finished and only mix up with colour enough varnish for the instrument I will be varnishing because it does not keep so well.

Many thanks indeed! for all the kind comments. After the inevitable shock of seeing/hearing myself on video I was very happy with the clip as a representation of who I am and what I do.. flaws & all.... Glad to see it here for friends to see. To be honest I was very reticent about being filmed but Holly the journalist and Simon the cameraman made me feel really comfortable and were genuinely interested as artists in their own right. I had made no preparation and just treated them as normal workshop visitors..we chatted for a couple of hours and whatever narrative there is comes from the editing.. It was a nice experience and I was intrigued to see them at work also. I had imagined a film crew needing to set up lights or ask me to perform but it was nothing like that. Amazingly to me everything was shot on a Canon HD SLR camera with no need for extra lighting.
I didn't see any flaws.
Melvin, I was curious about what is going on at 1:26? You're tapping something but it was covered by your hands.
The DSLR coupled with a good lens can be used to shoot a full high quality feature length movie. The quality is amazing.
