A short documentary by Euan Farmer that explores how local craftsman Julian Goodacre sources, seasons and processes the British hardwood used for making his bagpipes. The film charts a day with Julian in his Peebles workshop and at a friend’s house as he splits a large cherry tree to begin a lengthy process that, many years later, culminates in the creation of an exquisite set of bagpipes.

Another local, Euan is a young filmmaker currently studying BA (Hons) Film at Edinburgh Napier University – find out more on his YouTube channel. Here’s what Euan had to say about the making of this film:

“Julian was great to work with. It was fascinating learning about his process of making bagpipes and he seemed very comfortable in front of the camera, so very little work was required from me to make the film engaging. Julian being so comfortable on camera was particularly useful as we had a tight schedule which did not allow for many takes. I shot the film by myself, and almost all the footage was shot in one day.”
