The RECYCLIST

It’s not a new thing for me to care about the Earth and always try to find ways to be more sustainable. With everything constantly evolving around us, new technologies, new concepts, new knowledge, being environmentally friendly also means keeping educating yourself, your family, and also whoever else listens.
So any opportunity to spread the word again and again is never a waste of time.
The iPic Theaters just held the iPic Member Film Festival for short films focused on the environment. The objective was to create a two to six minute video that complies with the requirements of the Official Rules on the theme of earth preservation. The Contest began on December 15, 2011 and ends on April 22, 2012.
I’m proud to say that I coincidentally got involved in a great movie that is one of the front runners of the festival – The Recyclist, by Shane Alexander.
It was hilarious to play the BAD character… but hey.. anything to get the right message to people!

On January 12th 2010 the 7.0-magnitude quake killed at least 100,000 people in Haiti, one of the poorest countries in the world.
