After months of monitoring the disasters in Japan, it is a refreshing change to cover a story about a positive energy vision. Filmmaker, Antonio Saillant, and his friends and mentors, Ron Kamen and Ted Kotcheff, are committed to making the movie business sustainable and are working towards a greener world through clean, green and sustainable energy in the energy hungry movie industry.
Antonio Saillant’s company, Angel Light Pictures, expresses his vision and passion for creating energy efficiency in movies and television. Saillant says, “The motion picture industry is such a large user of electricity for its sound stage shooting and diesel fuel for its location filming [that it is a clear target for energy conservation.]”
He adds: “As one of the most outspoken ‘green’ professionals in New York City and Hollywood, I am proactive in the area of energy conservation and in helping television and movie industry colleagues push their [green] initiatives forward…In the past decade, I’ve combined my knowledge of the energy business with the entertainment industry in hope of contributing to a green planet.”
