Despite the rumors, the world is a pretty ok place. Amidst the talk of global warming, fuel prices and the Kardashians…there is this whole “Green Initiative.” So what does it mean for a project or institution to go green anyways? Miranda Bailey would be happy to tell you what it means, and how it just might be more than you bargain for.



As I’ve mentioned time and time again (and time again, mind you) in reviews of documentaries, there’s a certain “lightning in a bottle” element to creating a cinematic experience out of a real life situation. It is impossible to manufacture a story where no story exists, and even more difficult to craft a story out of a little bit of story. Such is the case with Greenlit, the eco-friendly doc about making a movie that has less of an impact on our environment.



Here in Texas, we are more brown than green. I say that because all the grass is usually pretty dead. It’s hot here. But here in Austin, saving the environment is a pretty big deal, as well. But our efforts — mighty as they may be — are nothing in comparison with the tree-hugging liberalism of Hollywood. Or so you might think. In the new documentary Greenlit, director Miranda Bailey explores the world of “green” or eco-friendly filmmaking and how it works (or doesn’t work) in the real world.
