Film Prof Launches Enviro-friendly Film Sets

Hollywood is well known for its excesses, but Emmy-award-winning UBC film professor Garvin Eddy is intent on changing one of them: set design. His experience designing sets for TV favourites like The Cosby Show, Rosanne, and That 70’s Show, taught him that the plywood used in sets is often sourced from endangered forests in Asia. Eddy obtained certification in green building practices and worked with an Oregon-based company to develop a new product called “ScenicPly,” which uses FSC-certified wood harvested from well-managed forests. Now he hopes to convince Hollywood that green set design is worth spending a little more green.
