Choreography for woodworkers

This clip of video art is fantastic! it is so well choreographed that I am sure you will replay it at least three times as I did. Instead of dancers, the makers of this video used woodworking tools. The clip was made by Gideon Weigert and his nine years old son, Noah, an Israeli luthier who creates wonderful instruments. Gideon lives in a small village in the Galilee at the very north of Israel.

Here is Gideon's description of how they made the video: "Since he is home-schooled I try to get him interested in some of the random projects I do – such as the animation. We used a stop motion program I got off the internet – you press the space bar to take a frame. It's very simple and fun. Took us about 6 hours to make a 2 minute film."
