Anna joined us as Producer-Director on God's Lone Country - a short documentary we made for the Royal Society of Arts' Food, Farming and Countryside Commission, exploring three lives in rural Derbyshire.

Anna is amazing and knows the rural affairs brief inside-out. Working with a small development team she researched and identified our three key contributors, and assembled a strong production team for the shoot. Anna coaxed some amazing stories from her interviews and captured their lives and surrounding really well.

She also liaised and sometimes mediated between the RSA team and our team at Together TV, ultimately producing a film that worked really well for all involved. She helped secured coverage the film on BBC radio whilst we landed some coverage in the Mail's TV pages. The film has been watched over 800k times on Facebook and kicked off a global conversation about rural issues faced in different countries.

You can see the film here: www.facebook.com/watch/?v=529655774232649

Super-professional and a pleasure to work with, I'd heartily recommend Anna to other production teams and companies.
