Ontario Creates Launches the ‘Ontario Green Screen’ Program
Ontario’s film and television industry is returning stronger than ever through environmentally sustainable film production. Today, Ontario Creates is launching the Ontario Green Screen initiative, which aims to provide tools to empower our film industry to incorporate scaleable, environmentally sustainable practices to support the well-being of our planet.
Along with Ontario Creates, SpinVFX is a founding partner behind the Ontario Green Screen (OGS) initiative, and serves with other industry leaders on the Advisory Committee. We believe that technology-driven solutions are a key part of reducing our industry’s carbon footprint, and we are proud to be leading in these efforts.
The OGS will provide a suite of tools to support this initiative, acting as a one-stop sustainable resource for the Canadian film, TV and content production sector. OGS will offer training in carbon calculation and on-set waste reduction, and will also provide a directory of green vendors to support your production. Other initiatives include food rescue programs to meet your on-set needs, and partnerships with local governments to support the film industry in making more sustainable choices.
As production resumes, OSG aims to make climate and sustainable production training part of the back-to-work strategy, so that we can continue to innovate and lead in content creation.
