Green Spark Group has begun production on “Behind the Screens!”
We have just filmmed our first interview with Jeff Golfman, the President and Co-Founder of Step Forward Paper. Jeff’s business partner and other Co-Founder is Woody Harrelson! They have created an 80% tree-free paper that is now taking the world by storm. We interviewed Jeff and talked about this paper revolution and how this Step Forward Paper is a great solution/alternative for our industry as we know there is a massive amount of printing that takes place on all productions. Using Step Forward Paper is an easy way to go green, save trees and cut carbon emissions. 2 boxes saves 1 tree!
We have already been given the green light on some fantastic in-kind donations. For our November 23rd shoot, our camera gear came from SIM Digital, a corner of a Stage was provided and equipment & lighting was provided by Wayne Bennett and crew. – Thank You everyone for your very kind in-kind support on our first interview shoot!
This is just the beginning of this production as we are hoping for future equipment, in-kind studio space to shoot the interviews and resources for post-production. Our goal is to raise a minimum $100-150K (cash and in-kind) to produce the remainder of this piece and do a highly visual and impactful job in post with graphics and editing.
As an Industry Organization, Industry Vendor, crew member or member of the public, please contact us if you can contribute help us make this piece in any way. Or if you would like to donate financially, you may do so directly through our website.
"Behind the Screens" is a documentary about the BC motion picture industry – made for the industry, by the industry. This piece is an opportunity to showcase and celebrate the Social, Economic and Environmental positive efforts happening locally. Taken together, these three areas contribute to an emerging trend in the industry called “Sustainable Production.”
The goal of this documentary is to tell BC's amazing Sustainable Production story, showcase our industry, position BC as a Sustainable Production leader, and create another competitive advantage for years to come.
This trip to Planet in Focus has certainly thrust BC into the spotlight with its Sustainable Production work and we look to take it to another level with “Behind the Screens.”
