The Scarecrow - Jim McKenzie

As a sculptor myself, I especially enjoyed this film showing Jim McKenzie's process for making his incredible scarecrow character.

"The Scarecrow" documents the complete step by step process of creating a character starting from a simple sketch in 2014 to a fully developed gallery show piece in 2016 debuting at Jim McKenzie's "Lost Magic" at Copro Gallery.
