Lately I’ve been really drawn to short, gorgeous documentary videos like this one. The best place I’ve found to browse them and get inspired is Those Who Make, a site that’s all about people who craft, sculpt, build, cook, and create, and how exactly they do what they do.

I love everything about this video of Stockholm’s Pärlans candy shop, from the old-school jazz music to the outfits to the lingering shots of wrapping candy.

For your relaxed Sunday viewing pleasure – Sanna & Oscar Liedgren make these gorgeous, wordless short films all about process.

We like to see things getting done: built, fixed, cooked, drawn, wrapped or hammered. Words are important, but need not always be spoken. Usually the making speaks for itself. Our technique is simple and straightforward: natural light, sequential shooting, single camera.

The Homegrown Swedes site, like their videos, is simple and beautiful. I can’t stop watching these.
