Grow, Share, Cook
Client: Plymouth Community Homes
Synopsis: Grow, Share, Cook is a Cities of Service project, launched in 2014, that helps those most in need to access high quality fresh fruit and vegetables. The scheme uses a volunteer model to support growing fresh produce, delivering it to families in Plymouth and providing cookery sessions to give inspiration in the kitchen.
Brief: We were asked to follow the development of the project over an extended time period, to capture the wide range of partners and participants involved, and to reflect the seasonality of the fresh produce and challenges in growing it.
Our Approach: We attended numerous regular drop in sessions for participants, where we focussed on an observational approach to filming. We also visited a range of food producers who contribute to the scheme. We produced a series of motion graphic inter-titles to give the work a unique visual identity.
Impact: The film has been used extensively by the client and helped to leverage support for further rounds of the Grow Share Cook programme. The short edit of the film was used to showcase the project at a major international Cities of Service conference in Phoenix, Arizona.
