Typeface Trailer: Endearing & moving film about a declined industrial town and Hamilton Wood Type Museum

In:

via youtube.com

The irony of this gorgeous movie (about the value of craft, patience, knowledge and physicality) lies in the lack of equivalent values for lighting, editing, production or sound - but hey - that's a digital craft. If you can get past that issue then this is a wonderful wonderful moving little docco about a declining Wisconsin town, some great characters, the importance of hand-crafts, and the astonishing Hamilton Wood Type Museum - with over 1.5m wood blocks still accessible to use today.
Helvetica meets Christopher Guest meets Louis Theroux with some 12th grade film studies kids.
(Features an all-time great cameo by an Ogilvy CD playing to type as the most unbelievable cock.)
