School is almost out for summer, but the student teams from our European-wide 2014 Green Filmmaking Competition are still hard at work. As they work towards the end of their Green Filmmaking Competition projects, we’ve made a short update so that you can see how the competition is coming along. It is looking mighty fine, and mighty sustainable! Check that out here. [photo:manshijian.com]
At this point in the competition our jury panel of green filmmaking experts have read through the teams’ sustainability plans and film project submissions. They have also given feedback to each team in
order to help spark some inspiration, and to help students in sharpening the effectivity of their on-set sustainability approaches.
At present, all of the student teams are:
– appointing a Green Steward for their set; the Green Steward is responsible for facilitating the sustainable production process
– planning for their sustainable approach ahead of time
– generating innovative and forward thinking on-set sustainability alternatives
– documenting sustainable practices on their sets, in detail for the jury; collecting data, evidence and tracking on-set sustainable successes and failures through writing and photos
– using the green approach as an opportunity for positive PR as well as to engage with the related communities, sponsors and audiences
-thinking big with sustainable innovation, and setting high sustainability goals in order to experiment with the possibilities for green filmmaking on-set
On the 6th of June, each student team will have submitted their final film project and sustainability findings.
At that point, the jury will be evaluating each teams’ process alongside their results, in order to announce a third, second and first price winner of the inaugural Green Filmmaking Competition for Students 2014. We can’t wait to see the results, stay tuned for that!
