Sustainable since 2013
Environmental, sustainability and social issues have been with us from the very beginning and are deeply anchored in our DNA. We put the following points into practice.
The right means of transport not only saves costs, but also helps the environment. Depending on the requirement, equipment and accessibility, we choose the best option.
Since Raffael Greminger's family has grown to three children, he has been using his own electric car. Before that, he was on the road for years with Mobility.
Should a flight be necessary, this will be compensated.
We support 2-4 organizations or people in projects per year. This can be film productions, live streamings or help with equipment. For example, we do at least one project per year for the support association kmsk.ch.
Wherever possible, we try to reduce the use of consumables. We use rechargeable batteries exclusively. With adhesive tape, this is only possible to a limited extent. But batteries, for example, I have replaced with NiMH rechargeable batteries. I also use practically no paper. Most communication is digital these days anyway.
A good and fair payment of our partners and freelancers is very important to us. Only with a corresponding income can our suppliers develop further and remain with us.
A lot of computing power is needed for film editing. And the electric car also needs a lot of energy. We use electricity fromCO2-neutral sources for this.
Share instead of buy
Equipment that we need only rarely or in a larger number, we rent. If we use the object more often and it makes economic sense, we buy it. And when we buy, we prefer second-hand equipment. All our equipment is also available to other producers. For example via Sharely: https://sharely.ch/de/profil/568
Investing in further training
Our partners and freelancers should constantly improve and grow with the projects. We pass on know-how and challenge them more and more.
When we want to purchase something, we attach importance to durable and robust products. In addition, they should also be easy to repair.
Ideally, the devices can be used for film and live streaming productions. This increases utilization and benefits.
For example, we built the computers of our editing system ourselves. So we can upgrade single components over the years according to the requirements. The parts we no longer need we sell or keep as a backup.
Repair instead of replace
Equipment is often on the road and experiences a lot. It can happen that something small breaks, for example a cable or plug, or a screw comes loose. Since Raffael Greminger is a trained electronics technician, he can repair many things himself.
LED instead of halogen
Sure, halogen lamps will soon no longer be available. On our projects, we use LED lamps exclusively. They use much less power and don't get as hot as old lamps. This is also more pleasant for the protagonists in front of the camera. They are also more precisely controllable.
