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.
