This is how the Coronavirus and climate changes are affecting the production world – Interview with KFTV

So you don’t have to be a climate activist to know that flying overseas with tons of equipment and crew is bad. And now with the corona situation you may not even have the choice of flying. So, how do we continue to shoot on location far away from home, in other countries? The answer is spelled remote shooting and trusting your local production service partner. 

The climate crisis vs the film industry is something I’ve written about before (read here) and now with the Coronavirus contributing to this I think we will really see a change in how we produce our shoots overseas. 

Yes, my service production company Swixer among many others around the globe are being affected by corona and the climate changes. But there are solutions. And some of them are being commented on in these two articles for KFTV that I’m proud to be a part of:   

Coronavirus – remote filming

Climate change and Coronavirus report:

I want coronavirus long gone, no doubt. But on the bright side, I’m glad this situation puts the climate discussion on top of the agenda. And as an owner of a service production company there’s nothing else I want than to have clients from all across the world to come and shoot in Sweden of course. But I just think we all have to look at more cost and climate effective ways of doing so. So, perhaps now is the perfect time to step up and really make that climate change while we’re at it?

There’s a club that I like a lot. It’s called Klimatklubben. The club is founded and run with heluva spirit by Emma Sundh, Maria Soxbo och Johanna Nilsson who talks about that climate-elephant of ours in the room. Without preaching sustainable tips are combined with inspiring challenges for change addressed to companies, politicians and oneself. In large or small scale but after own means.

This summer they came up with the concept #klimatfrukost – an event where mingling, yummy breakfasts and debate around climate issues are discussed. And the best thing about it is that I get to shoot these events! Check it out!

And if this wasn’t enough this super star trio have also written the book Gör skillnad! : från klimatångest till handlingskraft (Christmas present tip!) on the subject. Let’s hope it will be released in english!
