A Tree is for Life - Documentary
Part love-letter, part wake-up call, this suite of documentary films invites us to rediscover our relationship with trees, to explore the complexities of how they work and how we live together, and to inspire positive, achievable action for the planet and future generations.
A Tree Is For Life (90" feature) is an evocative, cinematic film exploring the magnificence of trees and our relationship with them, physically, historically, spiritually, ecologically.
Why Trees Matter (4x1hr) is a visually-stunning TV series exploring the story and science of trees and their relationship to humanity through the elements of Earth, Water, Air and Fire.
Timbre explores ethically sourced and sustainable wood instruments, and the impacts for music and forests. As traditional timbers become endangered, are artists aware of ethical sourcing, who’s ahead of the curve, and does using sustainable wood compromise music, or will it mark a new moment for the industry – and forests?
Swamp is an immersive 360° VR film that takes us into the rich and diverse ecosystem of a mangrove forest, below and above water.
