When DP Owen Smith told us he was shooting a documentary about Al Gore’s Climate Project, we were excited to support the filmmaker’s efforts in creating awareness of this important work.
Al Gore founded the Climate Project in 2006 to create grass roots awareness of climate change. So far, more than 2,600 volunteers have been trained to teach their communities about the issue and possible solutions. These volunteers in the US, Australia, Canada, India, Spain and the UK have together reached more than 5 million people, and plans are in the works to open more Climate Project branches worldwide.
The Climate Project documentary is being filmed with Panasonic P2 cameras. The VariCam 3700, HPX170 and HVX200 have all been used along with a VariCam 27H. We look forward to bringing you more news on this project as it develops.
