Film SSF Loves | “Eye on Film” | Director Megan Griffiths on Shooting Sustainably

As a person who has worked for over a decade in the film industry, I have seen the waste that can be associated with the average production.

While no one is perfect, we can all consider the choices we make and endeavor to be more environmentally and socially responsible. When these choices are compounded by large crews over multiple weeks, even the smallest changes can make a huge difference. Join...

Transportation SSF Loves | Editorial on High Design Bridges

According to Wikipedia, “The first bridges were made by nature itself — as simple as a log fallen across a stream or stones in the river. The first bridges made by humans were probably spans of cut wooden logs or planks and eventually stones, using a simple support and crossbeam arrangement.
