Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to rethink everything – including production. Our industry had to figure out how to keep producing meaningful work virtually. It turns out, the year we thought the least about sustainability in production was the year we had the smallest carbon footprint in the last decade.
Does this mean that the best way for production to be more environmentally responsible is to stop producing altogether? Of course not. But after years of trying to come up with the best method on how to be more sustainable, we achieved it by just changing the way we work, by taking less action. Reducing travel. Reducing paper. Reducing large in-person shoots. Using technology and remote shooting tools to continue creating with less impact on the environment.
