Paul Weir talks about the new Urn for the All Souls Procession 2012 from Leslie Ann Epperson on Vimeo.

This video was shot by Leslie Ann Epperson, who recently achieved full funding for her film Many Bones, One Heart, which documents the making of Tucson's annual All Souls Procession.

From the video's description on Vimeo:

The Technical Director of the All Souls Procession Weekend, Paul Weir, helps the talented crew at Creative Machines, Inc in Tucson, AZ as they fabricate a new stainless steel Urn to hold the prayers and petitions of the community. The burning of the contents of the Urn has become the ritual climax concluding the annual All Souls Procession. The dodecahedron receptacle was graphically designed by Thomas Valentine, after discussion with Paul Weir. The original Urn was also made at Creative Machines, Inc.
