CONTENT

Within the module, we will explore sustainability principles in the context of major production studios and from the perspective of the future development of European audiovisuals. We will delve into case studies, and the practical part of the module will introduce tools that simplify the implementation of these principles on set, as well as the soon-to-be mandatory process of ESG reporting. The module will present carbon calculator tools that facilitate the prioritization of areas to focus on for reducing the carbon footprint, their significance, and the context of the role of these tools in the environment. The module will be led by experts practicing green filming in both domestic and European settings.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Module graduates will be able to prioritize areas to focus on for sustainability principles on set, ensuring their efforts have the greatest impact. They will be able to identify areas of risk from a carbon emissions perspective. They will be practically capable of utilizing carbon calculator tools and will understand the European and global context of their use.
