    That's not even counting the environmental impact of the processes that go into making AV kit - the industries involved in extracting raw materials, the manufacturing and transportation of the kit and the energy used to power the kit, the environmental impact of people driving to the cinema, the environmental impact of manufacturing Blu-Rays and computers for streaming and downloading or the lifestyles of the 'rich and famous' involved in the film industry. All seized as a privilege to be used for the purposes of the film industry. The mainstream film industry is grossly antisocial, anti-planet and is an arm of the 1%. Always has been. At least in porn productions you can guarantee that a) budgets are too small to even think about using private jets or wasting £30m worth of cars b) everyone is at least paid something and you don't have bright-eyed-soon-to-be-dead-eyed-cynics as 'work experience' lackeys slaving in health and safety free environments whilst 'stars' are paid seven figures pretending to be poorer people portraying a middle-class screenwriters'/producers'/directors' idea of how working class people live c) in most porn gay people are highly represented in non-heteronormatively stereotypical ways i.e. away from 'the fun, non-sexually threatening gay best friend', 'the screaming queen' and so on.

    I always wondered about crash films. What a waste.
