Low Impact Filmmaking: A Practical Guide to Environmentally Sound Film and Video Production

Written by Larry Fessenden & Michael Ellenbogen (1993 100 page Illustrated Booklet, writers LARRY FESSENDEN, MICHAEL ELLENBOGEN)

As environmental concerns become increasingly urgent, people from all walks of life are looking for ways to be part of the solution instead of the problem.

This essential guide gives producers and production managers access to environmnetally conscientious and money saving resources that can help reduce wastefullness in the film business.

The book includes a discussion of major environmnetal and animal rights issues as well as a Forward which places the issues in historical perspective.

Written by filmmakers for filmmakers, this 100 page illustrated guide offers suggestions about every aspect of a film or video project, and includes a candid description of the real life application of these ideas through notes on the making of the independent feature NO TELLING, which was shot in upstate New York in the summer of 1990.

In a fruitless effort to raise uncomfortable issues about waste in the film business, Fessenden wrote this book with Michael Ellenbogen to discuss environmental approaches to film production. Distributed by Terre Verde in New York, its observations are still relevant. Thanks to Scott MacCauley for giving it the nod in FILMMAKER MAGAZINE back in ’92. Though the environmentally sound bindings are starting to biodegrade, Copies are still available!
