Still from Making Time

Director's Statement
Making Time is about craft, legacy and how we experience time, told through the lens of five horologists across the world. I believe their stories can teach us something about how to live and how to use our time well. They tell what it means to search deep to find your purpose and follow your dream. And they speak to us about alchemy. Alchemy in the transformation of dull raw materials into valuable golden objects certainly, but deeper still, in the transformation of experience - sorrow, loss, love - into art. The pulse of the timepieces they create synchronises with the pulse running through all of life.
