SHORT FILM: Queen City Farm by John Paget

John Paget‘s an independent filmmaker, freelance shooter/editor and “omnimedia consultant”. He’s produced tv and feature documentaries, directed national tv spots and produced documentaries for several state government agencies.
Recently, he finished a short film advocating the creation of an organic urban farm in the heart of the city. The film’s subject, The Queen City Farm initiative, plans to “convert 2.5 acres of vacant lots in an urban neighborhood into organic gardens that would produce fresh nutritious food for the surrounding community”.
Paget’s short is an exceptional effort and the Queen City Farm initiative is an innovative and ambitious project addressing Buffalo’s housing crisis as well as the nutritional issues of the poor.
You really ought to check this short out. It features Aaron Bartley, Sheila Bass, Diane Picard, Samina Raja, Erin Sharkey, Tim Tielman, Cynthia Van Ness among others.
