Clermont-Ferrand is the largest and most important film festival for short films. Buyers from all over the world attend Clermont-Ferrand to discover the best in short films for their television and cable programming needs. FILMAD Awards in Madrid recently awarded The Clermont-Ferrand Festival the honor of Best International Festival … and they have this totally cool image for the festival this year — see below.
Network Ireland-TV represents the finest in short films from around the world. “Three-Fifty” has aired on cable in several territories and numerous additional territories are still open.
Many of you know that our short comedy “Three-Fifty” was originally conceived as a solar powered project. The idealism at the time was to create a 100% solar film production – ha – an impossible feat in 2006 – especially for a 35mm night shoot. Mission Adjustment: as “sustainable” as possible. We conducted over 8 hours of rehearsal in a solar powered building and on our set used a solar powered marine battery (in a Woody Wagon no less) to recharge batteries, cell phones and the night shoot’s very important coffee urn. Add to this that “Three-Fifty” was originally developed and enjoyed a 6 week run live on stage in a 100% solar powered performing arts complex, and we most likely have the greenest short in town. The technical part of our solar system, the solar panel, transformer and the Woody Wagon were donated to us by ABC Solar. Thanks, ABC!
We applied for our Environmental Media Associaton’s GREEN SEAL and just received our official notice. No matter the size or budget of your production or special event “going green” most likely won’t cost you any money, just a little extra thought and planning on the front end. It costs you nothing to recycle. Deep inside everyone really wants it. So do it! You’ll be thrilled with the results.
So, a big green “THANK YOU” to our producers, writer/director and cast & crew who participated in our recycling on the set and a big “THANK YOU” to our crew members who braved the big solar powered battery in the Woody Wagon to re-charge their batteries, cell phones, etc. We appreciate your courage to step up and be first! We also need to thank our great supporter of the solar perspective, a man who created one of the first 100% solar powered films, filmmaker Jack Bibbo.
