FIRST FRIDAY LECTURE: Andrew Nisker "Film, TV and the Media: Shaping our Views of the Environment" Everyone has their own personal relationship with the environment – but have we ever stopped to ponder where we formed this relationship? Join award winning Canadian filmmaker and Earth advocate Andrew Nisker as he discusses “The Role of the Media,” and how it shapes our views of the Environment at 7:30 PM on Friday, February 3, 2012 at the Roseville Utility Exploration Center, 1501 Pleasant Grove Blvd., in Mahany Park.
As a filmmaker, Nisker struggled to establish himself in the feature film world by redefining his skills as director, writer, cameraman and editor. He worked in television and film with some of the most creative minds in show business like Lorne Michaels' company Broadway Video, the creators of Saturday Night Live. After almost two decades in the business, he has utilized what he's learned to create films that inspire environmental awareness.
“A few years back I took my passion for filmmaking and activism and came up with a new form of activism to help families live sustainable lives,” says Nisker. “Using my films as my tools, I have travelled the world speaking to families, corporations and students about how to flourish without harming the environment and the health of communities.”
Nisker’s lecture follows the grand opening celebration of “Peanuts…Naturally,” a temporary exhibit from the Charles M. Shultz Museum hosted by the Roseville Utility Exploration Center. After you experience the exhibit, be sure to join Nisker as he takes a look at how film, TV, the media and even a floppy-eared beagle named Snoopy can change our views on the environment.
