Founded in 2008, EcoSet was created as a response to the evident need to reduce the environmental impact of the film production industry.
Comprised of experienced entertainment professionals with backgrounds in Film, TV & Commercial production, we are proud to be a part of the movement to bring environmental consciousness into the entertainment and advertising industry.
Our goal is to provide practical solutions to shift commercial productions towards sustainable production practices. This transition in thinking and culture benefits the people and companies involved in the projects, the surrounding community in which we work and ultimately the Earth in which we all live.
