JediNews.com reports on the final episode of Variety‘s Sustainability in Hollywood event, in which Rob Bredow and Janet Lewin from ILM, and artisans editor Jazz Tangcay discussed how the virtual production of The Mandalorian allowed the show to reduce its carbon footprint.
By reducing set construction and relocation costs, the production was also able to cut down on carbon emissions by 30 tons, the equivalent of 39 acres of trees for a year, according to Bredow. With lighting, the team used LED-powered lights that use 70% less energy than the equivalent incandescent light. For physical components of the set, the production designers also used foam and luan, materials less harmful to the environment.
Despite creating the upcoming season remotely, due to coronavirus-forced shutdowns, Lewin said the show’s virtual production allowed the team to easily collaborate from home. “The way that we can approach our reduced footprint on set is very appealing to everyone who’s wanting to get back into production,” she said. “It’s not a one size fits all. We can tailor the way in which the production wants to use virtual production, so it could be for a couple of days or it can be for 20 weeks. So I think it’s a really exciting time for virtual production in that regard.”
Thus The Mandalorian production will be slowing the greening of deserts and the faster growth of rain forests which critical and essential carbon emissions facilitate, in order to virtue signal over the purely imaginary climate crisis.
But the virtue-signaling get’s even more dumb.
The conversation with “The Mandalorian” creators was followed by a dialogue on sustainable diets between actor Mayim Bialik and Variety‘s features editor Malina Saval.
A longtime advocate of sustainable diets, Bialik shared that going vegan looks different today than when she transitioned to being a vegetarian. With no personal cell phone and computer, she read VegNews to learn new ways to cook her vegetables and maintain a financially sustainable diet.
Bialik addressed the anxiety of introducing a new diet to family and friends, especially to children. She encouraged parents to not only introduce the way of eating but discuss the importance of preserving the environment.
“It’s not like a political campaign,” she said about veganism. “But we also do have an obligation to each other, to the environment and also to the healthcare system, because we end up paying for the problems that the food that we’re told to eat is creating.”
Whenever SJW activists say things like “we also have an obligation to each other,” what they really mean to say is “I would like to force my own wacko lifestyle onto you whether you’re willing or not.” So get ready to tolerate attempts to impose mandatory veganism at some point in your life time.
