Film and Video Storytelling to Inspire a Healthy, Sustainable & Just Future

SUSTAINABILITY, SOCIAL IMPACT AND CULTURE SHIFTING
Patsy has over two decades of experience communicating sustainability, social justice, purpose, and consciousness-raising ideas to inspire audience engagement and cultural shifts, in alignment with internal or external goals.

PRACTICING WHAT WE PREACH
Northcutt has long been aware of the hypocrisy and environmental costs from filmmaking, so our teams tread lightly where possible: from working lean, hiring local crews and using remote workflows; to licensing existing footage; to eating responsibly and shipping and receiving things slowly rather than overnight; to making sure that our stuff gets a new home as soon as we no longer need it so it can be reused before it’s obsolete, donating equipment to ewastecollective.org and paying GreenDisk.com to recycle our Technotrash, and more.
