OK, almost all for the sake of Patrick's doc...
In the end we had an amazing…Continue

We spent three days in Massie's Mill, VA, hanging with Patrick, Aaron and Matthew, and shot some amazing footage. Patrick never ran out of stories, we just ran out of time to get them! In this teaser you'll get to see what the shop is like, hear some lovely tunes, and see the kinds of shots we were getting for the documentary. What was most amazing to me was the amount of…Continue

Hi, my name is Jem Moore, and I'm starting a feature documentary on legendary flute maker Patrick Olwell. It is a great story, and worthy of preserving, and sharing, for years to come. I am also a musician, and I've been playing one of Patrick's flutes for more than twenty years, and have stayed in touch with Patrick throughout. Though I'm donating my time and…Continue
