Shown on BBC Spotlight | As part of ‘Down on the Farm’ feature, 3 minutes of West Ilkerton Farm was shown on BBC Spotlight, the BBC's regional TV news programme for the South West.
A commission from North Devon Moving Image, West Ilkerton Farm (2019) explores small-scale Exmoor farming and one family's efforts to provide humane slaughter for their livestock.
This project came at a time when the sustainability and ethics of meat production frequently makes the headlines, and spending time on a farm whose hard work challenges many assumptions about British farming and attitudes was a really exciting film opportunity.
'Just As I Am', filmed over the summer of 2017, is a 30 minute portrait of the experiences of openly gay priests in the Church of England who navigate a grey area between acceptance and rejection. Permitted civil partnerships but forced to swear to celibacy in order to work, these priests live in a hugely challenging environment which has received little media attention.
'Just As I Am' is now online with Journeyman Films and is available for screenings.
