Video of the day

I was asked to engrave a medal for a video clip about the 2012 Ironman triathlon race. Direct carving from a bronze piece. A few hours of shooting late into the night with a great team. The idea was interesting: drawing a parallel with the athletes putting out intense physical efforts and myself working hard on the medal one of them was about to win, even though my own efforts weren’t exactly comparable.
I was pleased to get involved in this film which has been very successful and even won an award in the Sportel of Monaco.

Directed by Julien Bertin and produced by Dan Miodownik (HBS Production).
