Films > Green Patriot Posters
Green Patriot Posters brings together the strongest contemporary graphic design promoting sustainability and the fight against climate change. This campaign uses dynamic posters to encourage citizen participation in building a sustainable economy (created by The Canary Project). These posters can be general (“We Can Do It!”) or can promote a specific sustainability action.
Green Patriot successfully raised funds to take over eight bus kiosks in San Francisco–during December 2010–via LoudSauce, the first crowdfunded media buying platform that allows art and social causes to take their messages to the streets.
Project Green is a sustainable filmmaking initiative offering selected filmmakers the information, resources and tools necessary to incorporate sustainable practices into their work–and then, following production, an opportunity to screen that work in front of an audience of experts, industry professionals and fans of the cinema.
Creative Migration was selected to participate in the initiative, via our Green Patriot Posters documentary. As part of the initiative, we are assigned a mentor – and industry professional working in film and/or sustainability – who will guide us throughout the production process. Together with our mentor, we will maintain a weekly production diary, sharing with NOMAD Films and Global Action Plan Sweden’s partners and audiences behind-the-scenes information, experiences and media.
The blog will focus on how we employ sustainable methods of filmmaking for our project–how easy/difficult that is. It will also highlight our continued fundraising efforts, scheduled interviews, travel planning, press and outreach, additional involvement, and so on.
* We are also working with Brighter Planet to reduce our carbon offset for our filming and travel. Those costs are factored in so our production can be as sustainable as possible.
