Falmouth Oyster Festival 2010

26 Oct

At the Oyster Festival this year, I was asked to produce some videos to be screened during the event. We produced two videos, one featuring Oysterman Tim Vinnicombe and the other, Oyster Gathering set to Cornish Lads Song by Rodger Bryant.

During the production of ‘Falmouth’s Future’ we interviewed Oysterman Tim Vinnicombe, asking him about Oystering and his thoughts about the Future and it was this footage that was included in the videos.

The videos received positive feedback and it was good to see the real life of an Oysterman depicted on screen providing an excellent backdrop to the festivities.

Cornish Native Oysters – The Next project?

12 Jun

Last term after the conclusion of Sanjay’s Kitchen, I met with Sanjay to discuss what was next. In the unassuming location of the local Weatherspoons, Sanjay suggested a new cooking item on Oysters from a fisherman he knew. Local Oyster fisherman Chris Ranger and his attempt to put on a new local Oyster festival all about freshly caught local produce and the community. Meeting up with Chris and a team I had assembled for the project, we planned to go out with Chris on the Oyster boat and interview him, whilst learning about the life of an Oysterman. Little did I know this encounter was to open up an entire world and ultimately was to lead us on a journey through the Majors inauguration, the local docks, a trip on the river, the environment agency a pub in Mylor and the future of Falmouth.
