Sustainable Film are delighted to announce that they have become a Supporter of The Production Guild of Great Britain.
Following the premiere of Barbie we’d like to congratulate everyone for such a success! We loved supporting the production to become as sustainable as possible.
Many of the films we love could not exist without the influence of the natural world. From lovable cartoon animals to epic sprawling landscapes, clearly film is impacted by the environment. But how is the environment impacted by film?
In our rapidly changing world, studios are examining the whole value chain and demanding action. More and more organisations are declaring Scope 3 as part of their decarbonisation strategies. Roots, our new carbon calculator, interprets what that means for SMEs’ net zero plans.
Tackling sustainability can be a huge task. Here’s a few ways you can make an impact:
– and it’s reducing carbon footprints too.
Virtual production can be described as “a combination of physical foregrounds and computer generated backgrounds which when viewed from camera creates one seamless visual environment.” While the technology is not exactly new, this type of production blew up during the pandemic when companies were unable to shoot on location. Though this ability has resumed, virtual production has continued to gain popularity, with productions such as the Star Wars spin-off ‘The Mandalorian’ and Warner Bros’ ‘The Batman’ opting to use it.
– Can the silver screen make us more green?
With all our work focusing on greening the production process, we could easily forget that through Film and TV’s unique ability to both project and reflect society, studios also have the potential to promote and normalise sustainable behaviours amongst their audiences.
