The Corona crisis has shown us how vulnerable we all are. Sticking together has never been more important, especially in an industry like ours, which is dominated by fixed-term contracts and competition. Many film crews are experiencing what can be achieved when we stand up together. Others feel left alone and don't know what to do in the coming weeks and months.
Unfortunately, the current crisis also gives us a glimpse into our future unless we soon decide to tackle the issue of environmental protection just as consistently and purposefully.
(1-6 extracts from Scientists for Future)
Less traffic, hardly any flights, shut-down industries... With a little "luck", the current measures to restrict public life will even enable some countries to achieve their climate targets for 2020. Unfortunately, this is not a reason to celebrate. If we continue to do the same afterwards, it will most likely have catastrophic consequences for us and especially for future generations.
The current crisis must therefore become a time of change. We need to start working now and commit ourselves to a socially and environmentally sustainable future. Our industry has quite a few issues. Diesel generators, trucks and fleets of vehicles, disposable tableware, construction materials and props, our costumes and what happens to everything afterwards. The list is almost endless.
To archive this we need you! Look around on our website and join us! A good start is a signature of our joint statement, which deals with our social responsibility. After that, we will have to work out strategies to make our industry fit for the future in a sustainable way and thus continue to tell our great stories, which are also needed for such a change.
