Here at ScriptPhD.com, we are increasingly aware of science and technology that provides solutions to the stresses and threats facing our global environment. As part of a new series we are launching called “It’s Not Easy Being Green”, we are committed to bringing you coverage of the best “green initiatives”, especially those relating to the entertainment industry. With the help of the newest addition to the ScriptPhD.com family, talented European filmmaker Svetlana Dekic, ScriptPhD.com’s first video production is a filmed interview with environmentally-conscious company Greenwriter.org. Based in Hollywood, CA, Greenwriter.org is seeking to reinvent the way we buy and sell screenplays by establishing the first free online screenplay catalog service that directly connects writers worldwide with Hollywood production companies–all without having to print a single sheet of paper! Our interview, under the jump.
ScriptPhD.com was extremely fortunate to sit down for a one-on-one interview with Daniel Riser, the energetic, visionary young founder and CEO of Greenwriter.org. Among our topics of discussion: the extent of paper waste within the entertainment industry, Greenwriter.org’s approach to mitigating this environmental problem, and their role in the future of digitally-based film production.
Greenwriter.org will be officially launching their catalogue, with all capabilities described in this interview, in the next two weeks. Los Angeles-based writers and industry professionals are encouraged to visit their booth at the Screenwriting Expo October 15-18.
