A new crowd-funded film is on its way, following the direct action protests of Camp for Climate Action, Plane Stupid and Climate Rush throughout 2009. But it needs your cash to get it off the ground. Read on…

Left Field Films is producing an exciting new documentary film on climate change and is asking for your help to get it completed. Just Do It looks into the mischievous and risky world of UK climate activists as they take on the combined forces of global capitalism, run away climate change and those pesky metropolitan police.

The film is currently being produced by a crew of volunteers, film professionals, and award-winning Director Emily James. Emily is well known for her innovative style, prompting the Guardian to write, “Emily James is a genius,… and will in time be revered as a television innovator”, and the Broadcast magazine called her “One of the ‘Hottest Talents in Town’”. Read more

What is really special about this film is that it is completely non-commercial. Rather than selling it to broadcasters and cinemas, the plan is to give the film away for free under a Creative Commons license. In this way the film’s production and release will reflect the culture and spirit of the movement it portrays, and ensures that as many people as possible can see it and be inspired to take action on climate change. Read more

The obvious implication of this model is that the production costs need to be raised in advance, as there wont be an income from sales. So, if this is the kind of film you would like to see, put your money where your mouth is and help to make it a reality. Please click here to make a donation.
