Here's a rather delightful video for Smoke Fairies' We've Seen Birds by Jonathan Pound that celebrates good British craftswomanship. 

Smoke Fairies' Katherine and Jessica get out their woodworking tools to build a giant bird – and then launch it from the top of a hill.

It's Jonathan's second video for the British folk-blues duo - he previously directed the Eclipse Them All video, again collaborating with DoP John Short – and his background as an animator includes working on Peter Serafinowicz-directed video for Hot Chip's Don't Deny Your Heart.
