This website is the home base for media projects that will
explore human hands, how they work and what they can do. This project is at the proposal stage and depending on the sources of funding I am very open to adopting alternate approaches.
For those interested in a science-based story there is Agents of the Brain, a one-hour documentary that will show, over the span of a human lifetime, the powerful connection existing between hand and brain.
For a web-based platform there is Maker Moments, a blog-based series of short videos that are mini-profiles of tinkerers, crafters, trades peoples, artists and inventors.
The Makers is a TV series that is very similar to Maker Moments. But in this case a host will be following several makers though the creative process and at times trying their own hand at it. It is not a how-to. It is more of a 'Why are you passionate about what you do?' and 'What drives you?'.
On the Video page there are some other demos that give a broader picture of what I would want to do. I am looking for partners, broadcaters and aggregators to bring this project to the next stage. Friendly advice is most welcomed. Reading my latest blog entry will show you what has inspired me;
It's an Exciting Time to Tell Maker Stories.
My name is Richard Burman. Contact information is on the BACK PAGE.
