It ain’t easy being green, but Hollywood’s film and TV productions are moving more and more toward eco-friendly practices on sets that not only help the planet, but also can save money.
Not too long ago such titles as “sustainability director” did not exist at studios. What a difference a few years make.
At the 2016 Vancouver International Film Festival, four sustainability execs from major Hollywood studios gathered to participate in a packed forum on sustainable production, with keynote speaker and “The X-Files” creator Chris Carter opening the one-day event.
“Vancouver will become a model for green production in North America,” Carter said. “When word gets out, productions will flock here. You’re going to have to build a wall. It will be huge, made out of recycled materials. And yes, the Americans are going to pay for it.”
