"Alex and Anna were full of ideas and we clicked immediately. We decided to run sessions both for our staff and also our certified members, behind and in front of the camera respectively, to ensure we covered both bases and give ourselves the maximum opportunity of generating video content in the future. Alex and Anna were excellent tutors, making the whole process feel easy. We can't wait to see what the results are, thanks to Down to Earth Media for making it happen."
Jimmy Woodrow - Executive Director - Pasture-Fed Livestock Association
"I've attended three video making trainings previously but this was hands down the best I've participated in. Doing it online and being encouraged to go out and collect material on our farms the same day worked really well, and makes us all the more likely to carry on doing it as part of our daily storytelling and marketing. I highly recommend this course."
Russ Carrington - Manager - Knepp Regenerative Farms
"I can't recommend Down to Earth Media enough. Anna and Alex trained 20 of our Farmer Ambassadors online, and after a day's training and a short follow up call, these farmers have been producing fantastic videos that convey a clear message and look good too. Anna is a brilliant, experienced, clear communicator and journalist who carries people along with her energy and passion. Alex brings the technical expertise and has given constructive feedback that ambassadors say has really helped. I would recommend Down to Earth Media to anyone."
