Adventures With The Green Screen -Reel Green Media / Episode 17-

On December 2nd I was able to go to the Northern California Chapter of the Academy of Hazardous Materials Managers' monthly meeting/dinner at Bon Thai restaurant in Orinda, California.

The night started out with everyone mingling and chatting. Then everyone was seated and the food was served. As everyone ate, one by one, each person introduced themselves by saying who they are, what organization or school they're in, and what exactly they do. There were so many interesting people there!

After dinner Lauren Selman, who has worked with the Green Screen, gave a presentation. She talked about the company she started after she graduated college, Reel Green Media, and the work she does. Lauren and her On-Set Green Team go to movie sets and shows the crew how to recycle, use reusable water bottles instead of plastic water bottles (an average movie sets use more than 500 water bottles a day!), break down and recycle their sets (which would normally be tossed into a landfill), and so much more!

Lauren and Reel Green Media also offer workshops and seminars for everyone involved in the movie making process, custom program development to suit the specific needs of film project, and energy auditing to help productions save money. Reel Green Media also has consulting online and off to help people and production companies make the transition to becoming greener, addressing the specific needs of the organization, project, or facility. Lauren's philosophy is that with creativity and innovation, we can green the movies together. She was truly inspiring :)

In other Green Screen news, since my first job with the Green Screen in October at the Brower Youth Awards, I have worked with the Green Screen crew to finish episode 17 - 'Taking Action for the Earth'. I got to film the introduction at Berkeley Community Media and do voice-overs for the show. I've also had the pleasure to work with Green Screen members on other projects. It was cool to see everything I had worked on come together into a complete Green Screen episode - be sure to check it out!
