another note, I found it annoying that it seemed like the scenes were scripted. I felt like this was the only factor that I disliked about the film, since there were a number of ways that it could be filmed in order to keep the authenticity of Kelly and the guitar shop. I feel like instead of forcing it to make it look like all of the scenes occurred through a single week (which could still be true), they could’ve simply indicated the larger time span. One of the factors that made me doubt about the time span of the film is the fact that at the beginning of the film Kelly obtains the wood from Mcsorley’s Ale House and by the end of the week that same wood is already made into a guitar. This is inconsistent since handmade guitars usually take between 120-240 hours to build which would be at least around 24 days working 5 hours per day which is a lot. All in all, I found the documentary very engaging. Other than the fact that sometimes during the film it seemed like it was arranged and awkward, Ron Mann did an excellent job directing and producing Carmine Street Guitars . He accomplishes a great job portraying Kelly’s story along with his guitar workshop and the passion that he shares for guitar making. Details

Juliao 4 shown like where he gets the wood to make the guitars and why he needs a specific type of wood really shows the dedication and genuineness of Kelly and his work. The cameos are a great way to engage the audience especially people who are interested in guitars and music. The people entering the shop interact into conversations that give insight about Kelly and his job which is a crucial part of the film.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
