RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I work on the grip and lighting side of the industry. I am also a local actor in town. I think the incentive program is very important to Oregon! I see friends of mine getting work on both sides of the camera and I see the company I work for purchasing more lumber from the local hardware company and overall spending more money in the community to supplement what we need in order to offer our services to shows like Leverage, Life Unexpected, etc.
I do have to disagree with Lana in that this is a 'green' industry. The amount of wast I have seen is enormous! Recycling does not seem to be a priority, nor reusing product when they can (lumber, gel and other expendables). I have seen carts of unused dry food get thrown in the dump. Office paper, newspaper, cardboard, plastic bottles (we are talking hundreds), and glass all tossed into the garbage instead of the recycling bin that is set right next to it.
