Originally posted on Human2Human:

There is a reason, Energizing Our World, a 55-minute documentary on sustainability, was the closing selection at Denton’s annual Thin Line Film Festival last month.

Perhaps it’s the way viewers are instantly drawn into the lush landscapes of Costa Rica and California and striking cityscapes of Spain and The Netherlands.

Maybe it’s because the business leaders and educators in the film make a complex concept like sustainability easy to understand.

Could it be the soulful voice of its celebrity narrator, Academy Award nominee, Edward James Olmos?

Or perhaps it’s seeing for ourselves that using renewable energy (solar and wind power), and recycling waste (like sludge from oil refineries being turned into deisel fuel and CO2 being used in place of water to dye fabrics) might keep us from running out of natural resources.

One thing that’s certain: it is under the watchful eye of Executive Producer, Joni Bounds (JNB Holding Company) that both her teams (in front of…

Global Warming or a New Ice Age: Documentary Film

Global cooling was a conjecture during the 1970s of imminent cooling of the Earth’s surface and atmosphere along with a posited commencement of glaciation. This hypothesis had little support in the scientific community, but gained temporary popular attention due to a combination of a slight downward trend of temperatures from the 1940s to the early 1970s and press reports that did not accurately reflect the scientific understanding of ice age cycles. In contrast to the global cooling conjecture, the current scientific opinion on climate change is that the Earth has not durably cooled, but undergone global warming throughout the twentieth century.

PressPausePlay is a film about the digital revolution and a deep glance into the cultural democracy and mediocrity in our mediatic reality. With so many interviews (from Moby to Sean Parker) with some of the world’s most influential creators of the digital era this is a must-see documentary.

Feelings – Filmed with a Canon 5D!

EOS 5D Mark II

What can be done with a CANON 5D is quite impressive! Enjoy the following clips:



Canon – WWF Conservation Partner

Canon Europe and WWF have been working together since 1998 in Europe , the Middle East and Africa , when it became WWF’s first Conservation Partner.

The partnership with Canon Europe not only provides WWF with much needed funds for conservation, but also generates excellent communications and networking opportunities for the organization.

Canon, a world-leading innovator and provider of imaging and information technology solutions for individuals and businesses, takes its responsibility for the environment very seriously.

Environmental issues have always been central to its management strategy. A key principle of Canon’s business philosophy is Kyosei – which means living and working in harmony with our environment – and which in turn fosters environmental responsibility in all its business and manufacturing processes.

Summary of the partnership
With Canon’s support, WWF has been able to completely digitise its superb image collection and to make it readily available online to its global network of offices.

WWF has also been able to commission professional photographers to cover and illustrate its programmes and projects, and to further enhance its image collection.

Objectives & Commitment
Apart from providing WWF programmes and projects with financial investment and value in kind, the partnership with Canon also generates opportunities to raise awareness of conservation through promotional materials and activities, product and retail promotions, communications at events and exhibits as well as targeted merchandising.

The commitment between the two organisations also includes raising employee awareness within Canon Europe and providing an opportunity for Canon staff to participate in ‘hands on’ conservation projects.

Other actions

The WWF partnership also reaches out to Canon employees across Europe, who are encouraged to participate in “hands-on” activities in nature parks. One group spent a week at Fulufjället Park in Sweden, constructing and erecting new marker boards as well as building and repairing footbridges and walkways.

During 2005, Canon implemented a responsible paper purchasing strategy according to WWF’s guidelines and became a member of the WWF European Paper Group, a think-tank of major buyers and users of paper products who take a holistic approach to paper sourcing, production, and use, as part of a broader corporate responsibilty agenda.

Canon and the Red Cross

Our partnership with the Red Cross is one of the ways we put our corporate philosophy of Kyosei into action. Discover how our sponsorship is helping the Red Cross to better the lives of vulnerable children across Europe.
