As a beginner in the art of lutherie (I'm still building molds, tools, and jigs) I am impressed with the goal of making inexpensive instruments.
For all of you competing (or heckling), I thought you might be interested in this movie trailer - the ultimate in low cost instruments!

This is a trailer for a documentary about kids who literally live at a dump, and how the people who make their living recycling trash have made a full orchestra of instruments from junk.

I look forward to seeing (and hearing) the full documentary! It is remarkable what this community and these kids have accomplished.
