  1. I’ve been to your part of the world once Jason but now I think I intened to move there. This is one of the most incredible things I’ve watched and your skills are truly incredible too, used to such a wonderful cause.

    1. It’s such a beautiful place Karen. During the creation of the show I found real wildness around the Windermere area. Thank you for your kind comments.

  2. How beautiful; Rivendale in Cumbria. Wonderful to see John Ruskin’s Lakeland can still be found and cherished. I know I shall be watching this time and again and sending a link to all my friends. Thank you for an awe inspiring start to the day.

    1. It’s a gorgeously wild place when visited in the right weather. I look forward to sharing the other 30 minutes of video on the big screen when we come to visit.

  3. Wow Jason this is such an amazingly powerful piece of work! I have been moved to tears to see the beauty and splendour of these landscapes. The sound track is perfect & I felt transported through time & space, moving with the wind, the water, the skies & the mountains. I’m sure Mother Nature is proud of you for honouring her with this gift. Thank you!

    1. Thank you Jayne. I immersed myself fully in the land and this was my thank you. I’m looking to see if I can do much more of this kind of work, perhaps for therapeutic use.

  4. Oh my goodness, this is an incredibly beautiful, powerful and moving piece of film making Jason! Stunning…..you are really talented and I do feel these films could certainly be used therapeutically as a meditation….I for one would love to use this as a soothing relaxtion. I adore how you have overlaid the gorgoeus music with the wildness of the wind…and the colours and shapes….just breathtaking. Congratulations….so pleased it played for me at last, had trouble viewing to begin with last week hence my late response. THANK YOU! 🙂

  5. Thank you Jason. I found this incredible moving – it hit the heart centre – I cried for part of me that hasn’t yet lived, for the missed opportunities and for the time wasted on all the wrong people, places, jobs and “stuff”. Moving, incredibly moving, thank you, humbled and honoring your beautiful work.
    I began with your first film to track your journey of where you are today and hoped to find inspiration – and here I am – thank you – I have. As I have watched your films over that last two years they have always moved me, and words have surfaced – this one took me to a whole other place and level. Thank you.

    1. You are most welcome Paulina, wow you did go back a long way. Thank you so much for your interest. I find your heartfelt words most moving and I will ponder on your inspired words.
      Interestingly, Stone was one of a trilogy of films. I was commissioned to catch the essence of the Windermere water catchment area in photos or video and after much musing decided to portray the Blood, Skin and Bones of the land in a cameo of three films all shot during November. I’ve only just realised that they haven’t been shared with my wider audience and will put that right very soon, along with the tale of the inspiration. As you know, they are amongst my first films so not as polished or technically produced as more recent works, however I do feel they need a proper airing.
      The charity that commissioned the works could only afford to fund the actual petrol costs, so I did the work for free… about 200 hours in all. The films were premiered alongside a talk by me in a small cinema in Windermere, but sadly the charity failed to tell anyone! So there were just five of us at the event, Nicola, myself, a representative from the charity and a couple who just stumbled upon the show! So, yes, I’ll get them out again.
      What a rambling reply from me, but thank you for this reminder.
