Another week, another selection of the finest cuts from the Huck website. This week we’ve got two Huck.TV short films, one kicking off the Working Artisans’ Club for 2014 with Drummond & Hammett the Bristol-based cigar-box guitar makers, and the other shot with rising star Courtney Barnett at the Great Escape festival. We’re also excited to announce that Huck is partnering with the incredible photography blog If You Leave to support their new Showcase 2014 project.
The Working Artisans’ Club 2014: Drummond & Hammett
In the first of our short films for the Working Artisans’ Club 2014 we headed down to the UK’s South-West to catch up with Pat Hammett and Tom Drummond, who build handmade cigar-box guitars. The pair’s lovingly handcrafted instruments are perfect for hitting the moody tones of the Blues music they both adore.
Courtney Barnett – Making It DIY
Courtney Barnett is on the brink of world domination. We caught up with her at Brighton’s Great Escape festival to find out she’s done all the hard work from her Melbourne bedroom.
If You Leave Showcase 2014
If You Leave has become a highly respected resource for the best in contemporary photography and Huck is stoked to be partnering with them to support their new project, the If You Leave Showcase 2014. The showcase is a global open submission photography competition that will be free for all entrants and funded by Kickstarter donations. Shortlisted entries will be published in a new bi-annual If You Leave magazine and put before a panel of judges that includes Huck, Dazed & Confused and It’s Nice That, to select the overall winners.
