TV Tokyo Films Oyster Shell Recyling Program

We were excited when TV Tokyo reached out to us wanting to film our shell recycling operation. They would be highlighting the benefits of oyster restoration and recycling to millions of people on a program that is the equivalent of MSNBC. 

It was a busy day of filming that drove home two key points. First, this is a network of dedicated people that makes this happen- it takes a community.  There are a whole lot of people involved and working to improve our environment.

Curt Felix showed them around the oyster propagation zone in Wellfleet.


Our shell recycling coordinator Theresa Baybutt showed them various pick-up locations from around Boston.

Erik Levy of Save-that-Stuff showed them around his Charlestown facility. Our main contact there- Eliana Blaine was away at the time.

Chef Mark Sapienza of the Langham Hotel talked about their green initiatives. (We recently honored him for his support of shell recycling.)

And Dale Leavitt of Roger Williams University in Bristol Rhode Island showed them around his hatchery.

The second conclusion is that it is a lot of work lining up the perfect shot. 

Here is a link to the final program. http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/mv/nms/ny/post_84838/  It is a fine product and may inspire some of the millions of viewers in Japan to start a program of their own.

  1. Considering how risk plays such a big part in film, it's quite surprising that the subject of Film and Risk at present is a very much neglected by most academics and scholars today which is why I decided to take up this subject as part of my study in Risk and Project management. 123 movies
