Climate Smart media is...
Very few films & TV shows have attempted to portray the climate crisis in a way that integrates change opportunities, and without a mindful approach, writers can build drama at the expense of falling into tropes which promote climate despair.
At Resilience Entertainment, we partner with experts to ensure technical accuracy and build awareness of a vast universe of real policies & technologies that can stop climate change, while crafting narratives that inspire audiences and are linked to specific follow up actions suggested by climate experts.
We use our proprietary content optimisation technology, ImpacTracker™, to maximize the engagement and impact of stories.
Facial recognition data collection during viewing, in combination with pre- and post-survey questions, allow us to track change over time and measure impact.
