GREENBOOK_200The New Mexico film technicians’ union, IATSE Local 480, has recently received their copies of “Green Filmmaking Reduce… Reuse… Recycle… Repeat.”

The guide offers tips and techniques to working crew on the latest green practices in the film industry. Local 480 members Peter and Cheryl Clarson wrote the book as a guide with the intent that it be distributed to every set truck on every movie shot in New Mexico. And there are a lot more these days including Transformers and Terminator Salvation.

The book was produced by Jon Hendry, Local 480’s Business Agent who has said, “We’d really like to get these into the high schools and colleges where they are teaching film techniques so the new technicians learn the green way. New Mexico has always been a leader in green film making, and now we’ve written it down.” When asked why it wouldn’t simply be greener to publish as a web site Hendry’s response was that “it’s often not possible to access the internet on a film set; this is a grab & go book with quick answers & solutions.”

National Geographic’s All Roads Film Project has already purchased quantities to distribute in their high school filmmaking programs.
