A Winglewood Documentary
Can we Shift from Crisis to a Journey of Abundance?
We hear the planet is reaching a breaking point.
Our climate is in chaos. Our resources are depleting. Our future is unpredictable.
And if all of that wasn’t bad enough these messages can cause us to run out of something else too – hope.
But what if we can flip this on its head?
Tip the scales entirely?
What happens if we stop focusing on where we need to restrict, and set our sights on something much more beautiful and motivational instead?
Is it possible to build lives where we thrive, and do it whilst healing the planet at the same time?
Well, these are the questions that this documentary sets out to answer.
I hope you’ll join us for the journey!
“What if we shift the perspective, and instead of a bad guy we see life giving plant food?”
Teaming Up With Nature
It took billions of years for this planet to establish with complex cycles of life.
Building blocks moving, creating, recycling.
Relationships forming, supporting, evolving.
Nature has learnt to adapt, to self heal, and to thrive.
Nature knows nothing of waste.
And everything from the microscopic to the gigantic plays a role within this extraordinary machine of constant creation.
But it took a mere spec of time for balance to be lost.
We started to see ourselves as seperate from the finely tuned eco-systems that surround us.
And in that lies not the problem, but the solution.
Because it requires nothing more than a switch in mindset to start turning things around.
To recognise the value of teaming up with nature, rather than controlling her.
Though to do that would require us to work together too.
Teaming Up With Each Other
I believe we have everything needed in our modern world to make a rapid turn around:
Generations of research and knowledge.
Technology and equipment accessible to all.
An ability to communicate, to share, to collaborate instantly. No matter the location.
And perhaps most importantly of all. A desire to improve the health of our planet.
Solutions can be easy in theory, but far more complex when in comes to working them into our fast moving societies.
‘We Are Carbon’ will also dive into the ‘human’ aspect of the picture, as we start to consider what it might look like for such large societies and nature to thrive alongside one another.
The Documentary & Podcast
‘We Are Carbon’ sets out to turn our current ‘climate crisis’ on it’s head.
To consider not where we need to restrict, but how we can heal and rebalance our planet through providing ourselves with lives that are abundant.
It’s an ambition that needs a lot of consideration.
It requires bringing together depths of knowledge and scientific understanding on topics as broad as biology, eco-systems, technology, business and finance.
It requires to be looked at from various perspectives, from factual data to visionary openess.
To do a thorough job of this I’ve decided to use multiple formats (as detailed below).
The Feature Length Documentary
Bringing together the full picture, the documentary is the main ambition of this project.
Estimated for 2nd half of 2022
(date to be confirmed)
Individual Full Length Interviews
Published as both audio and video podcasts, the interviews provide a deeper exploration and understanding of the topics covered.
Starting February 2022
Bitesized animations will seek to explain key principles from the project for a quick bit of coffee break learning!
Starting February 2022
[Director / Producer]
‘We Are Carbon’ is an expansion to my vision and ambitions for Winglewood.
I take a very holistic view of the world and find enormous hope when we expand our thinking outwards and consider our issues as interconnected.
It can be a challenge to communicate this ‘full picture’, especially when we are used to information that is very one sided or considers a problem in isolation.
Using the topic of carbon, this documentary and its expanded content is a ‘pilot’ project for me, one which I plan to follow up with other topics in the future.
Working primarily on my own at this time I’ve been absolutely delighted to be supported by many amazing people willing to give their time and share their knowledge relating to this expansive subject.
Please learn more about the contributors below.
This ambitious project has so far been self-funded, mainly through the dedication of available time.
I’m now seeking outside support to move things forward.
