Second Line Stages, the only LEED film production facility in the United States, is holding a two-day training program and seminar on integrating sustainability into film production.

Called “Greening the Screen”, the event will hold a training program for producers and filmmaking students October 27-28, followed by a public seminar in the evening allowing members of the local industry and government to hear from leading professionals on what it means to go green in Hollywood.

And there’s some big names involved in this one. Instructors and speakers will include producers from major film studios and experts in eco-friendly techniques, such asJane Evans, EVP, Physical Production, Focus Features (The American, Milk, Brokeback Mountain); Executive Producer Mari Jo Winkler (Dan in Real Life, Away We Go, Fair Game); Producer Kathleen Courtney (Daredevil, Because of Winn Dixie, Law Abiding Citizen, Bowfinger) and Joshua Throne, Production Manager (The Expendables, Beyond a Reasonable Doubt) Also coming are Meredith Bergmann and Katie Carpenter whose company Green Media Solutions has worked directly with NBC / Universal, among others, greening their productions over the past few years; their credits include HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, It’s Complicated and Saturday Night Live.

Producers for HBO’s hit series “Treme” will also be sending new hires to the event to learn about best environmental practices on set. Seems to me that something like this should be on the training docket for every new production.
