Bottled History

A video series designed to deliver a storytelling style to extend the appeal of the Smith Journal print magazine online.

Having spent a lifetime at sea as a shipwright and sea merchant, Ray's memories and love for ships are made physical through miniatures he constructs with extreme care within old whisky bottles.

In shooting this film we found Ray to be a humble, inspiring and accommodating subject. A lover of good rum, and great conversation.
