Cut Brooklyn: Art and Knives
Joel Bukiewicz started producing handmade chefs knives in Brooklyn when he couldn’t sell his manuscript and needed a new creative outlet. This video is incredibly inspirational, and should be a shot in the arm for anyone who’s currently frustrated with their dreams. The video is beautifully shot, directed, and edited.
You go into the shop. You cut yourself, you burn yourself. You fuck stuff up. You ruin something you’ve worked on for 3 weeks and you never make that mistake again. This is how I learned.
Go figure that a guy who makes knives by hand would have practical, no-nonsense advice about the creative process.
It takes buckets of blood and sweat and fucking work to get there. To get competent. And once you become competent, maybe you have it in you to become an artist – maybe you don’t.
The video is beautifully shot, directed, and edited. Watch it all the way through, Joel has some great quotes.
