Reducing Your Production’s Carbon Footprint

February 15, 2008 Cast It, Technology Comments Off on Reducing Your Production’s Carbon Footprint

Carbon Footprint

How big is the carbon footprint of your production? Think of all the energy consumption and waste just in the casting process alone. DVDs, DVD cases, tapes, actor packets, envelopes, paper, couriers, FedEx, and the gas required to move those auditions around town and the world.

Cast It totally eliminates the need to burn DVDs, duplicate tapes and then have them messengered to the various producers and executives who need to see them. The entire process now is online. Just think of the plastic you’ll save by using Cast It, and remember then how much petroleum it takes to make those discs and cases.

Make your production more environmentally sensitive. Do you absolutely need to see that audition on your TV that had to be burned to a plastic DVD, stuffed in an envelope and driven to your office?

Use Cast It and help save the planet.

In case you missed it in December, Cast It made the InfoTech section of Business Week. Here’s the text of the article by Ron Glover:

HOLLYWOOD CLICKS AND A CAST APPEARS
Forget cattle calls. Hollywood now goes online to cast many movies and TV shows thanks to a MySpace for talent agents called Cast It Systems. At $4,000 for a feature film and $2,000 for a TV pilot, most Hollywood studios and two of the Big Four TV networks use the password-protected site to create pages devoted to hot projects. Barry Josephson, producer of the Walt Disney (DIS) film Enchanted, approved director Kevin Lima’s choice of Amy Adams for the lead role of Princess Giselle after seeing an online video of her reading a script. Created by film producer Eric Hayes and dot-com entrepreneur Chris Gantos, Cast It now is moving on to Broadway plays and ad spots.
