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 […]
Web film is a wonderful way for business to share its story and skills with customers.
Delighted to delve into the quiet, dark world of growing delicious mushrooms, we carefully captured all the detail and dedication in this marvellous process.
After some picking and cutting of our own we made a film of the Walsh Mushrooms story. Enjoy the […]

Our task was to capture in a short film why land is being farmed, by who, how and to produce which crops.
There were farmer shoots, river shoots, field shoots, crop shoots and school shoots – all by […]
What else can you do to share another fascinating aspect of the farming story? Suffolk’s Hollowtrees Farm Shop asked us to help with six sweet films that let their tractors do the talking.
We filmed, snapped and captured an actor’s narration and then carefully created the film collection that makes ‘Team Red’ come alive.
Great team effort!
It makes business sense to make sure your potential clients can easily see, hear – and even feel – what it is that you offer. It’s why these days so many of us use short films on our websites.
We’ve been working with a whole range of food and farming businesses to train and mentor them […]
Sometimes, to truly capture the story, the only way to go is up. At least that was the case for Green Shoots while filming on location in Senegal.
From the height of the water tower – the tallest thing around – the landscape and the scale of the agricultural development planned were in full view.
The challenge is to say everything you want to say about the people, place and process behind your product and all in under 2 minutes. Impossible? No.
We worked with Walsingham Farms Shops to help them to shoot and edit their own film about their own very special pies. It’s just one example of the productions […]
