As we wind down 2016 we reflect on the sustainable production journey. Here are a few milestones from this past year:
- Working closely with Kelsey Evans of Keep it Green Recycling – we partnered on a #GreenFilmTip project to make sustainable production tips accessible to our industry, and have collaborated on projects throughout the year.
Diverting materials on feature films for reuse by local non-profits
Engaging with Creative BC on strategic planning to reinvigorate Reel Green
Collaborating with the Vancouver Economic Commission on a session at the Sustainable Production Forum – Myth busting! A hit session that debunked myths about sustainable production and brought together the local green economy with the creative economy
Consulting on a TV series to integrate sustainable production practices in all departments
Engaging with motion picture industry organizations and broader stakeholders to advance sustainable production industry-wide.
As we look to 2017, a few areas we are eager to make more of a difference in are carbon emission reduction, food donations, training and education and stakeholder collaboration.
Here’s to a green 2017!
