Opening Title Sequence of "Handmade Nation"

Happily found this in my inbox today -- it's the awesome opening title sequence of Faythe Levine's highly anticipated new documentary Handmade Nation.

Here's the link if it doesn't show up above.

This is what I'd call the opposite of "hand-washing" -- something handmade to promote something about the handmade, as opposed to "using" a handmade aesthetic to be "on-trend." This is what the corporate hand-washers are trying to emulate, but its earnest quality is something that cannot be faked.

Looks like it was fun to do this stop-action sequence, and I love it! Rock on, Faythe!
