We’re featuring the next episode on ulive! It’s called The Clockmaker. We are so thrilled that we could make this episode!! As Ralph explains in the video, in France, all students in the 9th grade (troisieme) do a professional internship. We were so excited that Ralph could intern with Jean-Francois, the clockmaker. After Ralph’s first day on the job, he came home determined that this would make a great Olive Us episode. When we went to explore the shop, Le Diable au Cadran, we too became mesmerized by the possibility.
Thankfully, Jean-Francois was very open and excited about the idea as well. He was such an easy-going, creative and fun person to work with, and his shop is such an inspiration to experience (its got something to do with all the gears, dials, faces, hands, and tools, plus the ambient tick-tocking, and cuckoo-ing). On the day of the shoot, he also showed us his collection of wind up toys and music boxes–perhaps they should be part of a future episode? We love how the video turned out. We think it gives you a good taste for what it’s like at the Clockmaker’s shop–a mesmerizing place indeed. We hope you love it! Watch The Clockmaker now!
