Good Work is a documentary film directed by Marjorie Hunt and Paul Wagner which was co-produced by American Focus, Inc. and the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage. Featuring painters, terracotta workers, stone-masons, stained glass craftspeople, plasterers, adobe builders, blacksmiths, and stone carvers, this 2016 production documents the functional beauty found in skyscrapers, cathedrals, homes, memorials, and other structures created and used by humankind.

Kenneth Leap of The Painted Window in Runnemede, New Jersey, Warren Holzman of Holzman Iron Studio in Philadelphia, Michael Rossi of Rossi Metals in Philadelphia, and Jens Langlotz of the Bryn Athyn Cathedral in Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania.
