How to Sharpen Pencils, The Documentary.


HOW TO SHARPEN PENCILS from Pricefilms on Vimeo.
For some reason, I though (and hoped!) this was a full-length feature and have been waiting for the home release. However, you can simply watch it online, in it’s 9 1/2 minutes. Be sure to check out David Rees’, especially if you enjoyed his book as much as I did.

Hmmm, I wonder if I could get sued for actually starting my own Pencil Sharpening Business?

(If you’re at work and have kiddies in the vicinity, you might want to turn the volume down a bit.)

    Probably the best video out there.

  2. YES. I can’t wait to watch this. The book was a lot of fun, I’m sure this will have a lot of wry, sorta-kidding-but-sorta-dead-serious fun.

      Andy, I have to confess that I have a bunch of talks/videos Mr. Rees has done on the HD that’s hooked to my TV. I watch them when I want to laugh my @$$ off! :)

    The toolkit box is rather nice …but (spoiler alert) him destroying the pencil in the end really hurt.

    It was totally delicious how serious he seemed during the first two-thirds of the video. I was riveted as he took out that monster of a cosmetic carrier, and had me wondering where my mother’s old Samsonite cosmetic carrier was, and how i could make a totally cool kit out of it. All for under a thousand bucks. He had me all the way up to the point where he broke the f’ing pencil in half. Hilarious… I assume he has one for how he uses toilet paper? :-)
