Had the wonderful opportunity to Field Produce a shoot with the inspiring folks at 350.org and Bill McKibben. McKibben is the Rachel Carson of climate change, and the group he helped spawn at Middlebury College, 350.org, is doing the largest global organizing for climate change activism. Wonderful people doing incredible work, and they are all only a few years out of college.
350 and Bill have been traveling the US giving his speech/program (similar to that of Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth tour), and last Sunday was the last stop in the US, back in his home town of Middlebury, VT.
I got to Field Produce this shoot for PF Pictures, and we had a lot of the OG crew with us: Rob Featherstone as DP, Tom Moore as 2nd Camera, Nick Poholchuk on sound, Mike McSweeney as 3rd Camera, Ian DeSalvo on 4th Camera, and me on 5th Camera. We got a lot of great coverage of the program, as well as some interviews before and after with the 350 team, Bill McKibben, and students attending the show.
This is a part of a 40 min doc PF is doing on 350.org and the tour. I am really excited to have been a part of this project, and to help serve the cause of changing the way we think of energy/resource use, and our relation to the planet as a whole. These people are doing truly inspiring work, as sobering as Bill's message is at times. But that's the point.
