Welcome to the dairy

While we were working on our new High Weald Dairy website, we thought it would be a good time to commission a short video to give customers a bit of insight in to what we do and who we are.

Fortunately for us, help was on hand in the shape of one of our Canadian relatives, Charles Shepherd, who has recently graduated from Humber College with a Batchelor of Applied Arts in Film and Media Production.

Although Charles has had experience of working for other people, the film for the High Weald Dairy was the first independent project he has produced.

Charles visited us at the dairy while he was in the UK this summer to learn about the business and capture the shots he needed for the film, which is now displayed on our home page. We love the result and think he has captured the dairy beautifully.

He said: “A key reason I got into media was so I could go find inspiring people and help them to tell their stories. I love learning about different people and different lifestyles, and then I love sharing what I’ve learned with other people.

“Although I’ve been on set numerous times, this was still my first independent project and my first job in the UK, which meant buying some new technology, so honestly there were some challenges I hadn’t anticipated. However, Mark and Sarah have been super supportive all the way through. They’ve given me lots of room to experiment, practice new techniques and just really push my skills. I think the results reflect that investment.

“Your first independent project is a huge deal, so I’m hugely thankful that Mark and Sarah were my first clients. Thanks to this job, I know that I can and will keep doing jobs like this for clients big and small. I want to keep telling people’s stories, because big or small, we all have stories that are worth celebrating. Here’s to great stories and great cheese.”
