1917 & The BAFTA Film Awards – How to achieve sustainability at scale

No comments

Summary

Sargent-Disc partner,Bafta albert, held an event with the teams behind 1917 and the Bafta Film Awards on how to achieve sustainability at scale.

How to Achieve Sustainability at Scale

 

With sustainability making headlines this awards season, Sargent-Disc supported its partner, Bafta albert at an event in London informing attendees of how to achieve sustainability at scale.

 

The teams behind the Bafta film awards and the award-winning 1917 (the first UK feature film to become albert certified) came together to share with the audience what changes they incorporated in order to have the biggest impact on their carbon footprint, and the challenges they faced whilst doing so.

 

1917

 

The session began with Aaron (albert) introducing the teams and painting a picture of a potential future should we not make a positive change to how we treat our environment. The team behind 1917 then took to the stage to share details of their collaborative effort which led to the feature becoming the first to achieve the albert sustainability certification. They strived to engage all departments in order to ensure they all worked as sustainably as possible - catering introduced Meat Free Mondays whilst banning all plastic bottles and Hair and Make Up made use of biodegradable toothbrushes and towels.

 

With travel being one of the main elements that contribute largely to productions' carbon footprints, 1917 filmed mainly in the UK, which removed the need for flights. If overseas travel was necessary, the crew found alternatives such as taking the Eurostar to France, and offsetting the carbon at the very least.

 

Aaron described his dream of a circular economy within production - where props and sets are not always created as new for each project, but adapted and reused. Neal Street Productions bought the prosthetic corpses made for 1917 in order to reuse them for their future projects such as Britannia. The art department working on 1917 also donated some unused materials to local schools when production had finished.

 

Whilst the task of creating a major feature film as sustainably as possible did not come without its challenges - Pippa Harris detailed a scene particularly difficult to keep as 'green' as possible - the team expressed their enjoyment at having the opportunity to work more closely with all the different departments.

 

2020 British Academy Film Awards

 

Alongside 1917, the Bafta Film Awards has also obtained a significant accolade this year - the 2020 ceremony was certified carbon neutral. The team behind the awards ceremony first investigated all the different elements in order to assess where the biggest impact could be made. With Bafta albert's help, they identified solutions which could decrease the carbon footprint.

The awards team worked closely with their suppliers and guests to inspire everyone work more sustainably, from gifting guests with vouchers in gifting wallets made form recyclable plastic for goodie bags, to asking them to re-wear previous red-carpet outfits and serving up vegan starters and desserts.

One rather prominent element of the awards ceremony that flagged up as an issue was the red carpet, which had never previously been possible to recycle. The team were successful in sourcing a fully recyclable carpet for the 2020 ceremony and were also able to replant real trees used for décor at the after party. The team kept the focus on reusing, recycling and making sustainable choices, however they made to offset at the very least by planting a forest in Scotland via Mossy Earth.

Advice from both teams was to remain persistent and keep looking for new methods to encourage your cast and crew to be more sustainable on production.
