How Big Is Your Movie’s Footprint?

Is there a future for a movie that has a small environmental footprint but a huge impact at the box office? Is is possible for a movie be green and funny? Can a high quality film be produced without hundreds of crew members, production trailers lining the block, and generators running 24 hours per day to keep the production going? If one peaked behind the scenes of a modern Hollywood production one would think that this was not possible anymore. We believe that it is.

Coffka is more than a movie, it is a proof of concept production and a blueprint for future, small footprint, large impact movies. The credit card commercials are correct, “there are some things that money can’t buy.” Many of us know that conservation is simply that – conserving, not using as much. Is it possible to have everything for nothing? Probably not. Is it possible to have the highest quality production with a small footprint. Yes.

As we survey the cinema landscape lately we find that Hollywood recognizes that the moviegoer wants some sense of reality. If we look at this summer’s blockbusters they all have one thing in common… a story. In the new Batman movie the director and producer went overboard making sure that the special effect was never in the foreground distracting the viewer from the story. The story was supposed to be center-stage.  We believe that people mainly go to the theater to see a story, to see characters develop, to see conflict, and to be thrilled – all without leaving their brains at the door.

Coffka is coming…
