Timber and wood donation:
These are the timber and wood pieces that came to us through our sustainability services. They were pieces of a set from a local production. They finished filming and wanted the timber removed and recycled. However, an alternative sustainable solution was found in order to continue the life cycle.
The London Screen Academy often needs materials to make sets, costumes, props etc. for productions the students put on as they train for their careers in film and TV. CAMA’s expert sustainability team spotted the timber as an ideal material for the LSA to use to put together sets for their upcoming productions. The timber was collected from the production by CAMA Workspace and delivered directly to the London Screen Academy. Sustainability at CAMA is a group effort!
What the London Screen Academy did with the sustainability donations:
The students certainly did not disappoint! The sets put together were set in wartime. Sakhile Shann the Industry Curriculum Manager showed us around the finished sets. She highly praised the huge team effort. From the donations to the finished product, every sector within the London Screen Academy had a part to play.
One particular set stood out because of the innovative thinking behind the making of the set. The students built a train set on various large tyres. This innovation meant that students could rock the set when they were filming a scene so that it looked like the train was moving.
We are so thrilled that the timber we donated went to such good use and played a big part in making their creative ideas come to life.
Unwanted Timber; disposal through sustainability:
Any timber not needed by the London Screen Academy, we donated to New Life Wood. New Life Wood are a charitable organisation that upcycle wood and timber. They are a sustainable organisation who also reduce unemployment and poverty. This is done by giving job opportunities to those with mental health problems and ex-offenders. This ensured that nothing we redistribute goes into landfills.
In addition, emissions from vehicles for the delivery were also kept as low as possible as they are all organisations within our local community.
Reuse. Repurpose. Rehome.
