Not Past It

🤔 Ever wonder why the world is the way it is? Like, 1000s of years of humanity and THIS is the version of the world we came up with. This one? Same.

Better Together

Exactly one year ago, Greencard shared this film that our community of makers joined together to create. Though we didn’t know it at the time, the sense of isolation we were striving to soothe with our message of kinship had only just begun. Today, businesses are reopening, more and more children are returning to classrooms, and friends and families are reuniting. There is still a ways to go before we are out of the woods, but now, every day truly does keep getting better and better. And hopefully, the overwhelmingly positive sense of being in this together is the one aspect of the pandemic that will stick with us forever.

CREATIVITY THAT UNITED US

For today’s CLIO Awards, Greencard Pictures was honored to create this tribute to the creativity that united us during a year of unprecedented hardships and extraordinary change. Although the world closed in 2020, the ad industry kept the dialogue open. Disrupting gender stereotypes, challenging racial norms, connecting an isolated world, and compelling people to let their voices be heard. Through a living collage of platform-specific ads, playing on the screens of an infinitely diverse audience, we celebrate content that moved the conversation forward and generated light in dark times.

Horror Anthology Film ‘Isolation’ Finishes Filming Entirely in Quarantine (EXCLUSIVE)

Greencard director Nathan Crooker’s COVID-inspired horror anthology film, ISOLATION, is getting some very impressive press, and for a very good reason. The nine contributing filmmakers from all corners of the world had two uniquely challenging creative hurdles; strict adherence to local safety guidelines, and using only the equipment and resources they had with them when they entered into lockdown.

Kindness Pandemic - Stories of extraordinary kindness during COVID-19

Inspired by a neighbor who had rallied his whole block to volunteer and fund raise for those affected by COVID-19, Greencard collaborator Michael Sugarman decided to spotlight stories from all over about individual acts of kindness and generosity in the midst of the pandemic. With programming help from a web designer (https://escapehatch.co/) and his brother's graphic design contributions, he started KindnessPandemic.org. "It's a tribute to all the people who are renewing my faith daily in the basic goodness and resilience of our species, and I hope it helps in some way to spread the spirit of mutual responsibility that we're all depending on so heavily right now."

If you've been inspired by someone doing good in your own community, you can easily post their story on the site as a way of passing along that inspiration to others.

Kindness is spreading. In this time of crisis, people everywhere are performing incredible acts of courage on behalf of others.

Thank you to everybody from our network of creators who helped to pull this together. You can find out more about our work here: www.greencardnewyork.com

Power of Sleep Episode 1

This #multimedia spot from Greencard Pictures director #AaronWesner is a prudent reminder. Although we all need to hunker down, it’s important to spend time outside each day and feed that melatonin-producing pineal gland. AND it’s just one example of the type of production that Greencard can facilitate remotely during the crucial efforts to #flattenthecurve. Just remember that 6 foot rule! 🌞📉 🎥 #staywell #staycreative #getoutside
