35 KVA GreenBattery generator almost ready!

Good news for gaffers who want to use an electric generator on the set of larger productions: the GreenBattery will soon also be available in medium format, with a capacity of 30-35 KVA! It’s light and easy to transport plus it fits any regular parking spot in the city center. And of course the biggest advantage on set: it’s completely silent. These latest edition GreenBatteries are being tested at different festivals this month and will soon be available to rent for productions.

Save the date: Workshop Sustainable Catering

Another year has almost passed and so Green Film Making is eagerly looking forward to 2018. And especially to the previously announced Sustainable Catering workshop, which now has a date: February 20th. We are very happy with the very inspiring location for the meeting: BlueCity in Rotterdam. BlueCity serves as a breeding ground for innovative companies linking their waste-streams; the output of one is the input for the other. This makes Blue City, located in the former swimming paradise Tropicana, the best example in the Netherlands of the circular economy in practice.

Because circular means to look at systems in a holistic way, with ‘catering’ we also mean the whole catering eco-system. So not only organic / vegetarian food, recyclable tableware and drinking tap water, but also transport, waste processing and the toilet. Everything that takes place around the catering car on the set, who and what comes and goes, is a subject for discussion.
