Sustainable production is possible and practical. Join IATSE Local 600 and industry leaders in sustainability as they share some of the ways we all can contribute to reducing the carbon footprint of film and television production. The conversation will cover New York’s growing resource base and explore how crew members can gain the confidence to speak up about how their department can contribute to meeting sustainability goals, like alternatives to diesel generators. Establishing sustainable practices is about shifting mindsets above and below the line while developing practical strategies during pre-production and production budgeting. Together, we can achieve that goal.
