Going Green & Staying Green: A Sustainable Movie Industry

Angel Light Pictures Entertainment Group

Reposted by Antonio Saillant from an article by Alma Daddario on Sustainability International Forum.

How can it be that the movie industry be sustainable: an interview with Antonio Saillant, US producer and director, by Alma Daddario on Sustainability International Forum.

Excerpt from “Meeting a Green Director”

“Q – Are you implementing any kind of project (as conferences, meetings with associations and governance) to spread and condivide [sic] this idea?

A – I will be setting up future meetings with studio executives in film and television to discuss ways the industry can be more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly and if money is an issue, I will work with State, City and utilities to develop rebate incentives in order to help in the green efforts.

There are many additional things that our government can do to pitch in. The New York Solar Energy Industry Association (NYSEIA), which a dear friend of mine, Ron Kamen, currently serve as President, has a comprehensive plan for what government can do to better support solar, including instituting a government purchasing program, educating the public to the benefits of solar, and additional public-private partnerships that can exponentially increase the use of solar. I consider myself a big supporter of solar technology and that it will play a major role in creating a sustainable economic and social future.”
