TOM OLIVER : OLIVER’S CIDER & PERRY
“When Jonathan from stories4change offered to do a video for Oliver’s Cider & Perry, I leapt at the chance. We had shared an agricultural education and a love of music and travel.
As with everything at Olivers, it was done a bit differently.
Jonathan over a period of the year, filmed segments at various times in the season and then asked me to narrate the story as I saw it. He then synced pictures to the narrative and with much editing etc. produced what I think was a first and authentic cider and perry making piece. To cap it all, Neil Ivison donated a fab tune “Best Days of our Life” by The Misers. Jonathan has captured so much about cider and perry, both factual and atmospheric.
Great job, keen price and excellent result. Thanks very much and yes, we are working on the sequel!”

TAMZIN PINKERTON : CO-AUTHOR OF LOCAL FOOD – HOW TO MAKE IT HAPPEN IN YOUR COMMUNITY
“Connecting to Our Food is an inspirational and informative look at the resurgence of local food activity in the New Forest.
The film clearly demonstrates what creativity can spring from a passion for community-sourced produce, and how reconnecting with our food is at the fulcrum of our relationship to our own health, our home planet and each other.
I hope that this film is shown far and wide, and that it helps to generate more of the local food enthusiasm that it captures so well!”

On every occasion I’ve found his commitment total and work insightful , thought provoking and of a high quality. Empathy for the subject matter as well as the people involved has also been a welcome feature.
I have no hesitation in recommending Jonathan’s company to work on your behalf.”

He is also a lot of fun to be around. 3C would like to work with Jonathan again in the future and recommends him to others.”
