Sons of Moorland was the screen debut of photographer Rick Stear, portraying a man taking stock of the branches of his life. The film score is primarily comprised of the album's opening track, "Trees Taller Than Mountains", which features Rick's character theme. The motif is reprised for the end credits (track two) and appears in complete form in the specially-composed "Man of the Moors" (track four). It is later referenced briefly in the 2013 film Resurgence, again featuring Rick. A modified, brass-led version of the opening track was included on the Winter 2012 compilation album Earthlight, and appears here as track three.
