Denny DeBey is a traditional blacksmith: he crafts objects of function and great beauty from hard metal. Since 2005, he has designed and created the awards presented at the Ashland Independent Film Festival. The filmmakers who receive his creations treasure them! Step into the Ashland Forge and watch the process unfold with this master craftsman.

The equipment for this film included Denny’s anvil — made in the 1800s — hammers and jigs that Denny made himself at the forge, plus Laney’s camera and editing system on her computer. The three of us found a great ease and delight in creating together. We forged a great friendship in making a film about a blacksmith. We hope you enjoy our little film. We certainly had fun making it.
