You will then meet David Sivyer from Feedback Organic Recovery, Newcastle, who will run a 45-minute presentation “Enriching in your environment” showing how his initiative has turned unwanted food waste into urban farms that grow produce and connect people.

We will conclude this workshop with a 30-minute filming demonstration where Jason will interview David with some questions to show how documentary stories begin, and how we use interviewing technique to find story.
