Tree Story – Help Make a Film!

In the summer I had lunch with two film-makers in Lewes. Their idea for making a film that celebrates trees and gathers stories about them sounded so worthwhile we agreed to drive straight out to one of my favourite trees – the huge old yew in Wilmington, Sussex, to do some filming.

Now their project is ‘live’ and you can participate. Tree Story will be a feature documentary film by award-winning director Ward Serrill. It will explore the relationship between humans and trees from every conceivable angle. Serrill has gathered a talented and experienced team with credits from National Geographic to Miramax to BBC’s Planet Earth series. And this film will be made differently than any other film: by the public. The TreeStory team is asking people around the world to send them their stories and, if they feel inspired, to give a $5 donation. Their aim – to create a film that will change how we see trees, and ourselves, for good. See I’ll post more news about it soon – but do click on the link and see if you’d like to participate.
