NBC's Making It contestant interviews

Presented, produced, and hosted by Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman, Making It is NBC's craft-off television show. The makers - woodworkers, felt crafters, interior designers, and other brands of makers - are very talented individuals who's skills are put to the test in this competition series.

Having recognized the passion, drive, and pure enjoyment of making things that each contestant illustrates, Makerviews is excited to have the chance to highlight, feature, and share insights from each contestant. This Making It series gives a deeper look into these makers' lives. The format: Makerviews asks these talented individuals two questions. That’s it, two questions.

This format is based off of Makerview's Miniviews series - a series that shares brief interviews, highlighting a wide variety of your favorite makers, designers, and artists. This brevity supports actually getting out there and making things.

More about NBC's Making It:

Presented, produced, and hosted by Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman with judges Dayna Isom Johnson and Simon Doonan and Shop Master Jimmy Diresta. This show is set in a serene cabin, filmed near Malibu and it was recently announced that the show is set for an upcoming Season 2!

"The best makers from around the country take on a series of handmade projects they must complete in their own unique way. As the competition goes on, the challenges become increasingly difficult, and the least successful maker is eliminated each week.

Each episode of the competition will consist of two projects that allow the makers to demonstrate their specialized talent while sharing skilled insights and touching personal stories. First, the "faster-craft" round will be a timed challenge that will test their ability to not only work quickly but imaginatively as well. Next, the makers will move to the "master craft collection," a one-of-a-kind themed challenge in which the competitors will need to use their expertise and get inventive in order to assemble a winning craft that fits the theme of that week.

The show culminates in a final craft-off between the last two makers. Taking place in a serene outdoor setting, the positivity, character and camaraderie of handmade culture shines through as the comedic hosts and judges provide encouragement, guidance and lots of laughs."— sourced from Wikipedia and NBC
