Storyline

"Blacksmith" is a 15-minute documentary that highlights the work of Rob Flurry, the resident blacksmith at the Spindletop-Gladys City Boomtown Museum in Beaumont, Texas. Unlike the blacksmiths portrayed in the media today, Flurry's craftsmanship is that of the old-school artisan - no expensive equipment; no modern forge in which to work. Instead, Flurry relies solely on nature's elements of fire, iron, air, and water (along with his own strength) to hammer out beautiful creations within the smoky furnace of his shop. "Blacksmith" was filmed in the tradition of poetic documentary - no voice overs, monologue or dialogue is spoken. All of the action is put to music that compliments the mood of the scene.

Blacksmith Rocks

Never mind the amazing camera work by Frank DiCesare, who produced, directed, wrote the whole thing while driving hundreds of miles for countless hours and getting lunch for the gang, daily...this documentary shows what blacksmithing really is....it's not digital, high-performance gear, cutting perfect angles...it's raw, hard, sweat, fire and pounding...iron into art. Rob Flurry gets the job done, daily. Frank DiCesare captures it. The ending of this documentary is worth the brief and enthralling wait. You won't be disappointed.
