Christopher Ross BSC, president of the British Society of Cinematographers, is determined that the Society play its part in addressing the climate emergency and to this end has asked DPs Mattias Nyberg BSC and David Raedeker BSC, alongside Pat McEnallay of Green Kit, to form the BSC Sustainability Committee.

“Almost every production that I have worked on in the last few years employs a sustainability co-ordinator or subcontracts their environmental responsibilities,” Ross stated. “Therefore, BSC cinematographers work individually on every production to offer sustainable solutions; it is part of modern filmmaking. The Board of Governors felt that a Sustainability Committee was an essential way of pulling the work of the many individuals into the collective conscious. By engaging with our membership in large numbers it is hoped that we can bring together the many organisations that share common goals with the Committee, such as Cut It and Albert (among others) and to make an effect that is larger than the sum of its parts.”

The Committee members share a concern about the climate emergency and are excited about this opportunity to effect real change in the UK film and TV industry.
