The IGS Communications Committee is actively pursuing a project to create a new 5-10 minute video serving to market and build awareness for the geosyntheitc solutions provided for river and coastal erosion protection projects. This effort has received new urgency as the “no plastics on beaches” message in several countries have gained attention. The expression of geosynthetic erosion protection is needed to provide a counter narrative and keep our materials from being defined as simple “plastic”.
To support this IGS movie initiative, the Communications Committee is requesting from the Corporate Committee members high quality video shorts showing geosynthetic solutions in the following contexts:
Please avoid direct showing of product or manufacturing name in the videos and please send them, or a link to them, to igssec@geosyntheticssociety,org. Please send videos 30 sec to 1 minute in length and we will edit according to needs. The act of sharing your video with the IGS will constitute your permission to potentially use it in the making of the IGS movie, and an understanding that a contribution does not constitute any agreement that the video will be used. All unused video contributions will be deleted from IGS files.
Deadline for video contributions is Friday, 27 September 2019.
