Introducing: The Greensters
Imagine trying to make a movie while leaving almost no carbon footprint…no batteries used in the lights, no cars or trucks used to haul equipment and public transit, walking and bicycling used to get the actors and crew to every location. That’s the task created for themselves by Rebel Without a Car Productions, which include our good friends Stephen and Enci Box; and they need your help.
Starting Thursday of next week and running through next weekend; Rebel Without a Car is looking for volunteers to help them move equipment for their shoots. Bikes with baskets, freight carriers, bucket bikes or just people with strong backs are needed to help make this sustainable shoot a reality. After the jump, you can read their plea for help on Midnight Ridazz. For more information, check out Enci’s blog about the creation of the film At What Price.
Enci is shooting a film, here in Hollywood. There’s not much unique
about that except that the film is being produced sustainably. The
objective is to tell a big story with a small footprint.
Our equipment pickups and returns will be performed by "Greensters"
on bicycles with trailers and that is why I write. (No offense to our
Teamster friends, it’s just that this is a job for the Greensters!)
If you have a bike trailer and are available on Thursday, July 16th
and/or Friday July 17th for pickups, Friday, Sat and Sun for the shoot
and/or Monday for returns, please give us a shout.
