Eight-and-a-half minute documentary exploring the challenges facing dairy farmers. Entirely self-shot (apart from the piece to camera), filmed over a couple of weeks and edited in a few days. Produced as final-year assessment work for university. Features an interview with newly elected MP Mark Spencer.
"Cheese (noun): a solid food prepared from pressed curds of milk."
For many people, that’s all cheese really is. Something you have in a sandwich, or perhaps (unforgivably) squeeze from a tube. Many people have no idea how it’s made, or what the real artisan product might taste like.
Martin Moyden is a Shropshire farmer and cheese-maker. His family have been rearing cows for decades, and when milk prices crashed, and supermarket contracts became increasingly ruthless, he turned to making his own cheese.
