ZAN MEDIA BECOMES CERTIFIED BAY AREA GREEN BUSINESS – HIGHLIGHTS BENEFITS OF DIGITAL FOOTPRINT FOR FILM PRODUCTION

Zan Media caught the green buzz when producing their recent documentary on the CA wine business, ” A State of Vine,” http://www.astateofvine.com. Says Partner/Producer Christine Scioli, ” we devoted a segment of the documentary to sustainability and saw time and time again the efforts made in the wine industry to become environmentally sensitive. It dawned on us that we took similar steps in the film and video business by becoming a 100% digital production company.”

In the past, shooting on 35 or 16 mm film, the company was required to utilize much larger film crews with grip trucks, generators, energy wasteful HMI and tungsten lights that heat the atmosphere, not to mention petrochemical based film and tape stock. Now Zan Media keeps crews small and efficient with excellent quality digital cameras and professional desktop editorial programs. ” Smaller is better in our business,” says Partner/Director Don Scioli. “It’s hard for the traditional ‘film’ world to make the break, but it’s the right way to go to do our fair share to help reduce global warming and other environmental concerns. We hardly even make video or DVD dubs anymore – we send our clients’ copies over the internet whenever possible.”
