Greenlit is a smart film that draws attention to how anyone, anywhere, any time can make a positive impact on the environment.

The film Greenlit illustrates very well how hard it is to be green on set.

GreenLit is a very fun documentary to watch. It moves fast and is a quick watch. It basically shows how hard it is to be green while making a movie. Informative and fun. Some great editing techniques as well too. It is also really cool seeing zach gilford off the screen, in this movie.

Greenlit is a solid documentary that not only illustrates the hypocrisy of the film industry when it comes to being environmentally conscious, but also does an excellent job of illustrating the challenges of creating a green set. By interviewing members of the cast and crew, the doc shows how they want to be green, but don't really want to alter their own habits to do it. Despite the great content, Greenlit struggled to find it's voice. At times the film dragged a lot and some elements of comedy fell flat. The narrative was a bit inconsistent and it wasn't entirely clear how successful they were at making a green film. Overall, however, this was a worthy documentary that did a fine job of presenting a problem and the hypocrisy that surrounds it.

Saw this the other day. I knew the movie industry is repsonsible for a lot of the pollution in Los Angeles, but I had no idea it was this much.

This documentary is short ands sweet but goes into a lot of details as to why and how the industry uses up so much resources. Defintely makes you want to go green after watching this one.

I really enjoyed this documentary. The film chronicles the implementing of a "green" film set, which uses a variety of techniques to cut down on the large carbon footprint of the film industry. People really don't realize the kind of environmental impact the film industry has, particularly in Los Angeles. I found it fascinating as someone who has been on several film sets. Often I've stopped and looked at all the big, energy sucking lights and thought, "this can't be good for the environment". So the filmmakers seen in the movie hire an outside company to come in and make their movie a "green" set. The steps taken in making the set of "The River Why" green sometimes make the process more difficult for the crew members involved. However, in the end the entire crew agrees that the idea of making a green movie has definite merit.
It is not just a movie for film buffs, as the messages and tips in the movie are things that can be applied to every day life. What I really found most interesting were some of the facts about how wasteful plastic bottles were, which really made me rethink my use of them myself. The movie does a great job of stressing that helping the environment really comes down to the personal choices you make in your every day life. Its the little things we can change to make a big difference.
It is also very well done from a cinematic standpoint. Its well paced, well edited, with some nice humor along the way as well.

I found this a very honest and refreshing look at a notoriously liberal Hollywood. I really appreciated how Miranda showed us different perspectives. I work in the industry and the friend that I watched it with does not, but we both enjoyed it and found different elements of it compelling. It was particularly interesting to see the evolution of Miranda herself - she approached it how documentaries ought to be considered, almost like a science project. She created a hypothesis, experimented, and ultimately found it to be more challenging than anticipated. Thank you for giving us an objective glimpse into a world that not everyone is familiar with.
