Eco Film Productions Ltd (EFP), founded by Dorset-based film producer Rachel Brown.
Rachel has a Masters Degree in Producing Film and TV from Bournemouth University, with her final dissertation focussing on ‘Sustainable film and television production in rural areas’ which explores how productions can be more environmentally sustainable.
“I started my ‘journey’ in September 2013 when I completed an Access to media diploma course with distinction. This won me a place at Bournemouth University on the BA Hons Television Production course. In 2015 Bournemouth University offered me the opportunity to fast track from a BA to a Masters degree in producing Film and TV. This was because of my interaction with the academics and students, willingness to learn and my general work experience.”
Following on from Rachel’s Masters Degree, Bournemouth University has continued to actively use Rachel’s skills and expertise to lecture post graduate students on sustainable film production. Along with this, she also project-managed 2 film production projects on Bournemouth University’s which included 4 films for the Bournemouth University Health & Social Care Faculty as well as 5 research films as part of the Open Access Research project.
Rachel is proud to have reached the Carbon Literacy Standard, through training received from the We Are Albert foundation – leading UK environmental sustainability initiative for the visual-arts, supported and governed by the BAFTA albert consortium.
Rachel’s involvement in the production industry also includes a number of commercial, charitable and student productions with her experiences including anything from pre-production to broadcast. Her role within production projects has varied from project manager to location-scout and casting. With a range of basic technical skills such as camera operation, lighting, sound and editing, she excels at all that she lays her hand to.
“Rachel has made a number of promotional short films for our company. As well as undertaking the filming and editing, she managed the whole process including making recommendations for the script and organising a voiceover. Rachel interacted well with the company staff throughout the process and ensured all were at ease during the filming. She was herself equally comfortable with her personnel interactions with those staff, ranging from the Company Directors downwards. We are extremely pleased with the end results and have received positive feedback from clients and staff alike. We will be inviting her back for the next phase of our filming”
