We want to promote an inclusive and equal industry that enables everyone to be creative, feel safe and do their best work. We strive to make choices in storytelling and casting that portray society as it looks, and that counter destructive stereotypes (such as racist, homophobic, transphobic, or sexist stereotypes). However, we are not blind to the fact that the media industry faces many challenges. The structures in society that result in discrimination and exclusion (sexism, racism, etc.), also affect our productions and our workplaces. As one of the major companies in the field, we have a responsibility to actively counteract these structures. This means, among other things, that we analyze to the best of our ability the consequences of the decisions we take in our productions, act on our findings, and make recommendations to clients accordingly.
What does this mean for you who work with or at us?
All of us who work in our productions, regardless of function, are representatives and culture servants of New Land. It is important that we embody the values we strive for. Everyone has an individual responsibility to contribute to a safe and inclusive process - because we are each others´ working environment. However, as a leader, you have a special responsibility to pay attention and ensure that everyone has the opportunity to participate on equal terms. How can discrimination, harassment and exclusion manifest themselves in our sector? It could be an inappropriate joke about someone's appearance or an unwelcome sexual invitation. Or that some people are assumed to be competent while others have to prove their competence over and over again. It could also be that some people never even get a route into the industry and are excluded because of who they are, not what they can do. We therefore expect professionalism from our team members on our productions. No one should have to face harassment, discrimination or exclusion. If someone is being victimized, we want you to come and talk to us in management. We will listen and address it.
When you work with us, you are a representative and culture bearer of New Land. Keep in mind that everyone in the production; clients, freelancers, extras or interns should be treated in a good and pleasant way. We want to encourage everyone involved in the production to work towards creating an inclusive and kind climate where we treat each other with respect. We want to be a friendly and creative workplace that enables everyone to do their best work. Sometimes things go wrong, it's not the end of the world, it can usually be solved in a good way if we help each other. New Land's productions and workplace should be completely free from harassment based on gender, disability, sexual orientation, religion or origin and all other forms of abuse. If you feel that someone is violating this policy, it is important that you help us bring it to our attention by talking to the Production Management.
No running on set as it increases stress on other employees and can lead to physical injury. No shouting except in case of danger. Everyone should keep their belongings in order and be careful not to block aisles and escape routes. Listen to and respect instructions from production, location and stunt/sfx manager. Everyone must help protect each other's safety for a safe and secure working environment. Dare to speak up if something feels risky or dangerous on set.
Follow traffic rules at all times. Everyone who drives a car at work must be able to guarantee a driving license for the current type of vehicle. Drive carefully. Avoid driving if you feel tired. Plan your work so that you do not have to drive under stress. Respect company rules so that everyone gets the necessary rest. This also applies to driving within the workplace; i.e. picking up/dropping off actors, props, equipment or other items should be done during working hours and should not interfere with rest time. Should situations arise where you see that the scheduling is in danger of violating this, please notify the production management as soon as possible so that we can resolve it.
Alcohol and drug policy
We have a zero tolerance policy for alcohol and drugs on location. This includes hangovers. Employees who are under the influence of alcohol or other drugs in the workplace will be immediately suspended from their duties. Anyone who notices that an employee is under the influence will contact production management. It is then the responsibility of production management to ensure that the affected person is taken care of.
New Land Green policy
At New Land we strive to be as environmentally friendly as possible and aware of our impact. It’s something we can all improve by making informed choices while in production.
Below is a guide explaining how we are working to improve each production’s environmental impact, alongside some rules to follow when working on a new—land production:
We are committed to developing scripts which can be shot locally to avoid air travel emissions, as well as where possible scripting locations and props to promote and encourage sustainable behaviours (e.g. having characters using reusable cups and cutlery)
We use local talent (cast and crew) as much as possible in order to reduce the need for travel
Where possible, all our offices are heated with renewable energy.
We have recycling bins for metal, glass, paper and plastic.
Any long term or infrequently accessed data should be stored on LTO tape to avoid carbon from cloud servers and consumption of hard drives
Lights should be turned off in rooms when they’re not in use and electrical items not be left to charge unnecessarily.
COMMUNICATION & PRESENTATION
We don’t print PPM presentations or call sheets except in exceptional cases. All important documents will be provided digitally in advance.
We work digitally on a job-by-job basis, using online systems like Dropbox, Wiredrive and Monday.
All invoicing is processed digitally. Please don’t send us paper invoices.
new—land and Bad Land have canvas bags in the office; please use them instead of plastic bags.
Before purchasing anything for the project, consider what will happen to it once it’s over. Do you really need it? Can it be rehomed afterwards? If not, can it be recycled?
Recycle any used disposable batteries, broken hard drives and other small electrical items.
Go to https://weareadgreen.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/AdGreen-Resources-Guide-29th-Sep.pdf for more advice on how to improve all parts of the production process.
TRANSPORT AND TRAVEL
When possible, use a bike, take the train or rent electric vehicles when travelling.
When driving to set, fill your vehicle as far as possible with others attending that day. Reduce the number of cars and vans in the production and be sure to make a transport schedule. Discourage all attendees from idling engines.
Don’t fly unless essential. If you have to fly, budget for CO2 neutralisation / compensation.
Work from a distance and digitally as much as possible. new—land will provide the necessary software for online meetings.
ON SET AND TECHNICAL DEPTS
If using a generator, make sure to use it as little as possible. Be efficient with generator use and procure fuel from renewable sources such as bio-diesel. Encourage generator suppliers to inform you of fuel litres used.
If using a studio, make sure it uses renewable energy; if this isn’t the case, find a way to help them do so.
Use grid power or rechargeable batteries where possible to power lights, DIT equipment, vans and camera cars.
Don’t leave items on charge overnight unless necessary, and turn off lights and power in places that aren’t in use.
Use reusable location protection (mats etc.)
Reduce energy needs by using LED lighting
Cut unnecessary consumables and source eco-friendly options: e.g. recycled blue roll, non-plastic tape. Return reusable consumables to the supplier.
Avoid weather FX and wet downs as these use large volumes of water.
Set up bins in groups with clear signage first thing.
CRAFT, FOOD AND PACKAGING
Consider providing vegetarian-only food options on set. This is one of the most effective changes we can make in a production to reduce our carbon footprint. Source food seasonally and sustainably.
Use reusable water bottles to reduce plastic waste.
Reduce plastic packaging by using alternatives to plastic, e.g. by making sure that the caterer serves food in biodegradable containers.
Make arrangements to donate any leftover edible food to local charities or shelters.
Rent as much as possible so that equipment and materials can be returned, rather than buying new props.
Transport equipment and props as efficiently and sustainably as possible.
Use sustainably-sourced and reusable materials for set decoration, and enquire with production houses in advance about the possibility of using rentals (especially for service jobs).
Dispose of any solvents used legally and carefully.
Hire robes, towels etc., rather than purchasing them new.
Avoid fast fashion brands and use sustainable brands as far as possible.
Look to shop in used clothing/charity shops where possible.
Return as much as possible to shops after use or recycle / rehouse.
Use ecological detergents and soaps.
Organise waste collection to offer both recycling and food waste, and remind cast and crew about waste separation.
Thank you for helping us get better!
