LookLabs User Profile - The Good Studio

Henry Ford once said, “Chop your own wood and it will warm you twice.” When it comes to Gary Lowen truer words were never spoken. Lowen transforms from craftsman to artist with reclaimed wood found on the beaches of New Zealand.

Intrigued by this 77 year old wood turner, film-maker Scott Thoroughgood stepped away from his regular work shooting and editing wedding videos into directing and producing his passion project. The result is a beautifully crafted story of a man and his lifelong need to create. “The Wood Turner,” from The Good Studio, was shot primarily on the Sony A7S. However, the Sony RX100 MK4 and RX 10 MK2 captured the slow-motion footage. Aerials were shot on the Phantom 3. Thoroughgood brought all the footage together with the SpeedLooks Universal Patch. He finished his grade with SpeedLooks Clean Fuji C-Log V. 4.0. The result is a consistent look across the footage with rich tones that bring both the artist and his environment to life.

While Henry Ford might have been referring to the warmth generated from chopping wood and then burning it, we’re sure you will agree chopping wood and creating art from it is equally as warming.
