Vermont Energy Indepedence Day

Vermont Energy Indepedence Day

Mark your calendar for March 21st and be sure to participate in Vermont’s first crowd-sourced film.

Vermonters – like you – are being asked to describe what they are doing to reduce their energy consumption, cut their carbon footprint and transition to renewables. Grab a video camera and describe your everyday actions that are helping to move our state toward energy independence.

How are you redefining your energy use? Carpooling? Eating locally? Serving on an energy committee or conservation commission? Protesting Vermont Yankee? Working at home with your children to save energy?

Whatever it is… film it!

Each individual story that is created on (or around) March 21st, and submitted through the website within 4 weeks, will be professionally edited by the Bright Blue EcoMedia team, woven into a narrative, and rolled out for viewing at local showings, film festivals and beyond.

All you need is a video camera of any quality (i.e. a standard digital, smart-phone, flip cam) some friends and some ideas!

Each Vermonter’s story is part of Vermont’s energy independence narrative. Help us tell a compelling account of what individual, community and state leadership looks like . . . and how that is creating an energy transformation in the Green Mountain State.
