Simplify Your production Sustainability Efforts
Balance My Film gives films makers an exciting new tool to more easily calculate their film footprint and then immediately take action through C Level’s inspirational reforestation projects.
C Level has made it beautifully simple to both calculate and communicate on the climate impact of films. Film makers as story tellers can now take action with the world's most holistic reforestation projects."

BUILT IN PARTNERSHIP WITH:
Balance My Film originated from C Level’s consulting collaboration with Europe’s largest news agency, Euronews. Initially, the partnership aimed to calculate and remove the carbon footprint associated with all their sponsored and branded content. Euronews had been using a cumbersome and intricate method to calculate this impact, which frequently resulted in inactivity due to the administrative burden. Recognising the opportunity, C Level decided to expand on their work with Euronews, streamlining the calculation process and developing the online carbon calculator known as Balance My Film. This tool offers a straightforward yet trustworthy means for filmmakers to engage in meaningful climate action.
A CARBON BALANCED PRODUCTION
The very first short film to be Carbon Balanced using Balance My Film is our own production called Bio Estrela. This will be available in September and introduces a Plan Vivo Nature pilot project for biodiversity on the Estrela mountain in Portugal.
