One of the key challenges that any production has to contend with when trying to behave sustainably is how to dispose of its physical assets. As a production finishes and the crew disperses, there is often limited time to resell or recondition sets, props and costumes for future use.
As disposal becomes more expensive and as crews—and studios—become increasingly more aware of the need to reduce their carbon footprint, they are looking for alternative options.
Michaele Apostolides & Michelle French from CAMA deal with the physical assets that come off film sets and see first-hand how difficult it is for studios and productions to invest in efficient reuse strategies.
For the last three years they have been working very closely with the industry’s top Asset Managers, developing systems to help solve this problem.
In this session they will talk about the need for asset management to be considered during pre-production – and for efficient asset management systems to be implemented across production.
They draw on their experience of working with various studios including Apple, Amazon, Paramount, Netflix, Miramax & Universal and independent UK production houses such as Sister Productions, DNA films, See-Saw, RedWave Films and Roughcut TV.
