Bryony has worked in Cornwall as a videographer for 10 years specialising in documentary environmental films. She has filmed as an independent film maker for NGOs, charities and other organisations such as Greenpeace, the Centre for Sustainable Energy, Rame Peninsula Beach Care, the Peninsula Trust and Exeter and Falmouth Universities.
Previous to her move to Cornwall she worked for eight years in London for production company Salt Pictures, working as associate producer on projects in Bethlehem, Kenya and London. She then went on to work as Producer Director at CTVC, heading up over 500 short online films to start up Truetube, now a BAFTA-winning free online educational platform producing documentary, drama and animation films aimed at teachers, students and young people.
Bryony has a unique style and ability to film, record sound and edit, and her strengths are telling people’s stories in a natural, honest and intimate way.
Claire worked for many years as a print and radio reporter, author and as a press officer for the International Fund for Animal Welfare, in the UK and abroad (Philippines, South America and East Africa).
In 2013, Claire set up Rame Peninsula Beach Care, a successful beach cleaning and marine conservation charity in Cornwall, and she also co-coordinates the Cornish Plastic Pollution Coalition.
She was a member of the 2018 Sail Against Plastic expedition to Svalbard, studying the impact of plastic pollution, but also experiencing the inescapable evidence of climate change on this fragile region in the remote Arctic.
Claire and her family had to evacuate their home for six weeks in 2014, following the devastating storms that hit the Cornish coast, and which were calculated to have been made 43% more likely due to climate change.
As a project to document the facts around climate change in Cornwall, we take our own carbon footprint very seriously and aim to tread as lightly as possible.
We operate in accordance with an environmental policy in order to keep our impact to a minimum. We are calculating the emissions of our work and investigating the most robust and effective local schemes available so that we can offset these emissions in the best way possible upon completion of the project.
