World Premiere of Captain Planet DVD Screening on 4.6.11
What an Amazing Night, with so many Local ECO-Voices. Captain Planet and the Planeteers, series creators, and environmental experts came out tonight and rallied the GOOD GREEN Energy of Atlanta as Architecture for Humanity Atlanta, Renew Social Ventures, and the Planeteer Movement proudly hosted:
The series ﬁrst-ever official DVD release was debuted with a screening of episode 1, followed by the “Making of Captain Planet BONUS features”. This was a once in a lifetime event, so I couldn’t miss it! Meeting Barbara Pyle
, and having an opportunity to work with Architecture for Humanity Atlanta & Renew Social Venture to Host the Event was a REAL Honor.
Steven Shappiro, a fellow colleague of AHFA, started off the show with some good ECO-Insight and then led into a brief introduction of our Honored ECO-Guests. Erin Glynn of the Sierra Club was in attendance, as well as Eco-Builder Robert Soens of Pinnacle Custom Builders. We had several other ECO-Leaders in the community, to many to mention here.
Barbara Pyle spoke about Captain Planet, and the Planeteer Movement. She is such a powerful speaker, and ECO-Motivator. Her words echoed truth, conservation, and activism. I toke some mental notes of course.
Next, We screened Episode 1. A Hero for Earth – Gaia, the spirit of the Earth, summons five teenagers from five different corners of the world to help her in the battle to save the planet. For their first assignment, the Planeteers battle Hoggish Greedly, whose oil rig operation is jeopardizing the coastline.
Brandon Sutton followed up the Screening with a brief synopsis of the Spirit of the Gulf Coast, a project that developed as a volunteer documentary project that continues to raise awareness of the ongoing impacts of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and how the people along the coast demonstrate their resilience in light of adversity.
