The Somerset Dairy Careers Project is a brilliant local project by the Community Council for Somerset that is designed to support and encourage young people to gain the necessary skills to embark upon a career in the Dairy Industry. Visit somersetdairycareers.co.uk for more info.
The video is inspired by an old HP commercial where the expressions of people are captured inside an empty frame. I thought it would be great and effective to reproduce this visual trick in order to stimulate young people to become interested in the dairy industry and to showcase the different job roles within it.
Commissioned by the Somerset Dairy Careers - Community Council for Somerset, funded by the BIG Lottery Fund, produced by Nicola Elliott.

Can learning the meaning of a single term actually help change the food system? David Evans and Alexis Koefoed think so. These poultry farmers explain the real story behind such terms as “cage free, “free range” and “pasture raised” so that consumers can make informed decisions when they go to their local supermarket.

I have extensive directing, shooting and editing experience both in the US and Europe, where I have worked for both television and the web. My project list include music videos for Napster, a feature-length documentary for HBO, and several animated shorts for Warner Brothers and Toyota.
Recent clients include TVL, where I shot and edited hundreds of hours of news programming for a Tuscan tv network. I have also been editing and animating a series of short films called “The Lexicon Of Sustainability: Food and Farming in America” (2013) for US broadcaster PBS.
I recently moved to England with my wife and live close to Bristol
Stefano Salvati is a brilliant Italian chef based in a little town called Wellington in Somerset, UK.
He creates seasonal homemade Italian and European dishes using fresh locally grown and reared ingredients from the South West, and you can find Stefano and his delicious food at the local farmers’ markets, food festivals and fairs throughout Somerset.
In the summer months, Stefano opens his backyard up and fires up his wood-fired oven for his pop-up pizza restaurant. On one of our visits we brought along our goddaughters, Chloe and Lexie. Big fans of pizza, they loved the experience and the authentic Italian pizza, and were lucky enough to have an impromptu pizza making lesson with Stefano.
It's aways a fantastic night, full of laughter, music, and of course, great pizza! If you are in the neighbourhood, make sure you pop by.
