UNO documentary: Using the hands to find a passion, an interview with Doorman Design's Alex Geriner

Who: Alex Geriner, furniture builder and founder of Doorman Designs

Film by: UNO student and filmmaker Carson Smith

Editor's Note: Alex Geriner, founder of Doorman Designs, is passionate about making things with his hands. Whether he's crafting a bed, a side table, a headboard, or kitchen stools, he puts as much thought into making the object as choosing the material for the object. What started off as an after-work hobby has now become a full-time business, and UNO student and documentary filmmaker Carson Smith takes his camera into Doorman Designs to get a behind-the-scenes look into Doorman Designs.
