An series of short films, focussing on six of Nova Scotia's finest craftspeople, are to be made viewable online, the first one having been released last week.

Ben Proudfoot has directed the shorts, titled Life's Work: Six Conversations with Makers. Here is the trailer containing clips from all six films.

Last week, Stone, focussing on stone carver Heather Lawson was released and widely enjoyed and acclaimed.
