Message in a Bottle

Apr 13, 2013

by Jeremiah Glazer

Ray Gascoigne has been around ships all his life. After a career as a shipwright and a merchant sailor, he now works in a magical, miniature world unto himself: creating ships in bottles. This short film, by Smith Journal and Melbourne-based production studio Commoner, tells the story of a craft honed over 60 years, and the man behind it.

For more beautiful stories, watch Smith Journal’s first short film, The Smokehouse.
