*******UPDATE*****
Updated Pozible - Farmers on Film from Mick Russell @mickrussell_ on Vimeo.

So the aim is to share with you the amazing and awesome stories from farmers across Australia... Especially the young! (and young at heart!)

The older farmers with stories of the past and the even bigger stories of the young doing it different in a tough environment...

Do you actually know what it takes to bring the food to your table?
Do you actually know what it takes to make the cotton in your t-shirt?

The farmers will shoot the video and we will do the 'ART' to edit it into a series of stories. We are aiming for over 40 short stories over the next 12 months....

******UPDATE******
There will be a totally separate website where the videos will be accessed. Each film once shot will be approved by a series of farmers to make sure facts are right and we give an acurate story of what is happening on the land in Australia!

So far the Farmers that have put their hand up to be featured:

1. Redbelly Oranges - Griffith
2. Gemma Lee-Steere - Western Australia - Rural Farmer
3. Connie Northery - Myrrhee Boer Goats
4. Terry O'Leary - Queensland - Melons
5. Spring Bay Mussels - Tasmania - Nominated by @cqfoods
6. Coral Coast Mariculture - QLD - Nominated by @cqfoods
7. Flinders Island Meats - Flinders Island -
8. Robbins Island - Robbins Island - Nominated by @Fimeat
9. Kelsey Morgan - Upper Hunter Valley
10. Beth McMillian - Mid North Coast
11. Megan - - Gloucester NSW

Email me at mick@mickrussell.com to let me add you to the list of farmers wanting to tell their story....


Here is a video I did last weekend with a great story... Do you want to see more of these great stories? http://vimeo.com/74200943

This is just one story in a region that is going through a bit of a tough time. Thou there are some other amazing farmers out there doing very innovative things to get the food on our table...

Could we of helped Bill earlier if we knew of his story?? Put pressure on the community to think 'local'?

The Challenges

There is always going to be risks involved when putting cameras in the hands of farmers. That is why we are going to get all the cases and protective equipment we can to make sure these camera survive the time on farms over the next 12 mths.
