See Geoffrey make an Essential Flute in this film! (Flute played in score is the Essential C.)
I'm honored to be the subject of a "micro-documentary" by multi-talented film maker Blayne Chastain, who also composed and performed original music for the film using one of my Essential Flutes (the same flute that I'm making in the video, actually!). This film is an artistic snapshot of my flute making process for all of you who have wondered what goes on in the workshop :-) Thank you Blayne for this amazing piece of work! (Hint: increase the video quality in your settings to HD!)
