Who better to show and share to teenagers and young people what great careers there are in agriculture than young agri-professionals? In Green Shoots’ work in fields, offices food factories – and every stage in between – we have met some great young agriculturalists. So it was a pleasure to turn the cameras on them, […]
Behind – or at the heart of – every successful farm business there’s a career as a farm business administrator (FBA). East Anglian FBA Jenny Pine wanted a film to showcase the work: invoices sent, farm bills settled, wages paid, records kept and business decisions based on accurate records. It’s a brilliant job: challenging, interesting, satisfying and worthwhile. […]
You know a film is impressing an audience when they share it. Within just a few weeks of releasing our latest major farm film of a farming year, thousands of people had watched it and recommended it to their networks. And the audience continues to grow.

Film making can sometimes be about capturing that moment. But for some of our productions, the film is about the months in a business. It was great on a fine March morning to get out and about (with ground cameras) and up and away (with our drone) on the first shoot of the season for our […]

Sometimes an anniversary simply sneaks up on you. We were surprised and delighted when the congratulations came in from LinkedIn to Green Shoots for five successful years in business. Five years: time to reflect.
Time for a count up
A thousand days our office has been open: sounds and feels impressive. So we decided to count up some […]
One of the best things about being commissioned to make films is meeting great people with fascinating businesses in interesting places. We were delighted to hot foot it to the fields of a leading farming family in southern Germany for the height of their asparagus harvest. Yes, Green Shoots were asked to shoot green shoots!
Germans prefer their asparagus white. We […]
Film is fantastic for informing and inspiring – and certainly for entertaining. But without the right techniques all your creativity – and your viewer’s time – will be wasted.
This year we’re finding the Green Shoots Movie Making Masterclasses are a big hit. We love giving film making training and helping film makers not just to make […]
One of the quickest, most effective and memorable ways to inspire is through film. We can all have the technology at our fingertips: a phone to film on, a keyboard to edit with (if some nips and tucks and a music track enhance it) and finally a connection to the internet to share it with.
Quickly making good roots, the sweet potato cutting or ‘slip’ sends its colourful shoots out across the Senegalese soil.
It was our challenge – and pleasure – to capture the story of the introduction of new varieties of this formidably productive crop to Africa.
On farm, in markets and in the kitchen from early light to the […]
