9th Annual Recycling Film Festival
PROP’s 26th Annual Recycling & Organics Conference
Communicate Recycling Program Features with a Smart Phone video
Consider shooting a 3-5 minute recycling video with your smart phone that can be posted to your community website, or used at group presentations, to get your points across both audibly and visually. Yes, you can use your smart phone. The video feature of most smart phones can produce excellent quality video. The audio quality however, will require extra attention to prevent extraneous sounds. The short video at this link was shot on a Samsung Galaxy S phone and edited over two-week period to win 2nd place in a 2012Washington State contest. Award-winning phone video
You can recruit local talent as writers, producers, actors, videographers and editors who can relate the ins and outs of your community’s recycling program. Or you can create the video with a two-person crew. Use props to depict the types of items that are eligible for curbside or drop-off collection. Point out items that are not included in your program and offer alternatives for recycling them, as in the case of plastic bags and other films that can be recycled at local supermarket lobbies.
A prize, sponsored by MSW Consultants, LLC, will be awarded for the video, or videos, judged by FilmFest participant ballots to be the best. The winning videos will gain additional exposure through posting to PROP’s YouTubeChannel. You can view many of the winning videos from the 2008-2015 FilmFest at this link: PROP YouTube Channel
Take some time to produce a short, quality, recycling video, post it to your community web site, and enter it into the 2016 PROP Recycling FilmFest. You can do it!
