“The production “Tatort Dortmund – Gier und Angst” is characterized by a particularly coherent general approach to environment-related aspects. The concept combined a clear environmental commitment with a very systematic analysis of possible environmental hot spots and a structured plan of mitigation measures based on this analysis.
In addition to a wide range of measures to reduce the environmental impact of transport (e.g., use of low-emission vehicles and traffic-optimized planning of shots), catering (e.g., regional, seasonal, and organic-certified catering), and accommodation (e.g., consistent use of certified/resource-saving accommodations), an energy-saving lighting concept was implemented. This concept helped to reduce energy use at the set by approx. 80%.
In the opinion of the competition jury, this lighting concept constitutes an effective and readily transferable "innovation". New elements - but available on the market - and particularly bright cameras (Sony FX-6 camera) are combined with efficient and flexible light sources (LED orbiters) as well as other tools (such as skypanels) in such a way that the energy savings make it possible to shoot with "normal" power connections and without the use of a generator, even with demanding design requirements and "on location".”
