SUSTAINABILITY TAKES A GIANT LEAP FORWARD IN THE SA FILM INDUSTRY WITH BLUEWATER TRAILERS
Film Afrika, one of South Africa’s leading television and film production and servicing companies, is pioneering the move towards environmental sustainability by using Bluewater Trailers on the set of Raised By Wolves, TNT’s highly-anticipated serialised sci-fi series from master storyteller and filmmaker Ridley Scott (The Martian, Blade Runner, Alien: Covenant), which marks his television directorial debut. The series is currently in production in the Western Cape. The Bluewater Trailers are keeping the 400-strong crew hydrated through the peak of the South African summer, and – since December – have already eliminated the use of almost 50 000 single-use plastic water bottles on set. Throughout the duration of the production it’s estimated that the Bluewater Trailers could reduce single-use plastic waste by up to 581 818 bottles, while significantly lowering the drinking water cost to the production company.
