GREEN & CLEAN SET INITIATIVES
The audiovisual industry is very consumeristic. It needs a huge quantity of resources, which are not unlimited, and it uses them for just a very short time.
More sustainable shoots will play an essential role in the respect of the Eco-System and for the future of productions, that’s why our film sets are eco-friendly, ethical and clean conscious.
We’ve decided to move towards a more green-conscious audiovisual world with the following sustainability criteria:
Reduction of paper
we work digitally, and only print what is necessary, Callsheets, Crew list, PPM booklet, wrap book, and many more are all digital.
Reduction of plastics
we eliminated all disposable plastic bottles and giving all the crew members reusable bottles that they could fill at bigger containers distributed around the set.
we use compostable silverware, recycle paper towel, paper cups
we have designated trash and recycling bins all over the set.
Elimination of food wasting
After a shoot, we donate leftovers from the catering service to homeless centers or social services.
Reduction of toxic products
We are using less toxic paint when it comes to building a set.
Reduction of gas emission
We Communicate with our gaffer and G/E team to ensure that lights are unplugged and turned off when not in use.
We created guides with resources for all departments that participate in our shoot, with recycling tips.
We are extremely conscious that brands are experiencing a very difficult and unknown time right now, and as a result, they will be very sensitive and implicated in the production process moving forward.
It’s very important in this new era, to be very mindful about hygiene, and the respect of each other on set, that’s why we are moving toward an immaculate way to produce.
Moving forward we will be applying new production safety rules suggested by many official film organizations, to ensure the safety of our Clients, Crew and Cast members.
You can download the Safety regulation rules below:
In addition to those new suggested rules, we will take extras precautionary measures:
Each crew member, Agency and Clients will be provided with a hand sanitizer, mask and gloves
Craft table and catering contractors will be controlled to be 100% clean during their preparation (wearing gloves and masks will be mandatory)
Passenger vans will be disinfected before rental
Equipment without exception will be disinfected prior to the shooting date, and multiple times during the shooting day.
Masks should be worn while on set, but are required when social distancing is not possible
The health and safety on our production sets is our top priority, and like we always did, we will bring you solutions that will be cost-efficient without impacting the creatives expectations.
We believe these small gestures represent the start of an ecological transformation of the film industry and will have the greatest impact on the environment and on human beings.
