Zero Waste Shoots

Striving for 90% or greater diversion from landfill or incineration


Our approach to Zero Waste is four-fold and can be translated to any scale of live action or print production.

1) Waste prevention: Techniques to avoid disposability in all departments
2) Waste management and diversion with metrics tracking: Recycling, composting and food donation
3) Strategizing reuse:

  • avoiding disposal, planning for disassembly and donation of constructed elements

  • collecting salvageable creative materials, decor, and expendables for reuse

4) Prioritizing donation: Merchandise and other items with a Fair Market Value are given to local non-profits, schools or other 501 (c)3 groups
