our friends over at grow food are making a short film

Posted: March 23 2010

and they are casting!

Independent producer Annabel Seymour, from BreakThru Films (The Devil Came on Horseback, The Trials of Darryl Hunt), is casting for a GrowFood documentary series. She'd like to cast a few folks who travel from farm to farm—people with diverse stories and perspectives to show a well-rounded view of the nomadic organic farming experience. If you are interested, please email Annabel at [email protected].
Please include the following:
-       A short description of yourself (attach a photo if you like)
-       Why did you decide to sign up with the GrowFood site?
-       What do you hope to get out of working on an organic farm?
Please, feel free to be creative! BreakThru is looking for unique stories and the potential for an engaging journey to film.
