Alyssa Kostello | Reel Green Ambassador
- I'm newer the indie film industry. I have been 1AD and 2AD, writer and am now exploring directing and producing, as well getting back into acting. In theatre, I was a playwright, director, producer and ran a theatre company whose mandate was sustainability. I've always been passionate about making every part of my life more environmentally sustainable and I was very excited to see all the work already starting to happen in tv/film. Of course, there's always more to do too! Sustainable production is important to me because the whole world needs to shift habits and behaviours to save this planet, and the film industry is such a big part of everyone's lives, whether it's your job or your an audience member. This industry can make a huge impact and be a huge influencer!
I pledge to take the free Carbon Literacy course Reel Green offers, and encourage all my cast and crew to take it as well as we gear up for production of my first film! Our goal is to make the entire film zero waste and record our journey to share with everyone!
