Our life as film makers began because of an illness in James' family. Our desire to help James' father Roy, inspired what would eventually become 'Food Matters'. We realise that this information was vital, not just for Roy, but for everyone. Since that our passion to share this life saving message with the world has only grown, resulting in the release of our second film, 'Hungry For Change' in 2012 and the launch of 'FMTV' in 2014. You can read our full story on the about us page.

In good health,

James & Laurentine

Food Matters

Food Matters started with an illness in my own family. My father Roy was diagnosed with severe Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Depression and Anxiety and spent 5 years bedridden on 6 different medications entrusting his health to the medical profession. Unfortunately, the conventional approaches left him feeling even worse than before; inching ever closer to despair. We tried our best to convince him with books and articles to step out of the conventional box and really start to consider his options but everything we tried failed. We decided that a film would be the ideal medium to bring the world's leading health and nutrition experts into his own living room and explain once and for all that 'food is better medicine that drugs'!
