Climate change movie begins production

OXFORD, England, June 20 (UPI) — Production has started on a British-New Zealand-funded film designed to enable scientists to explain climate change and what can be done about it.

The $1.1 million (600,000 pound) movie is a collaborative effort of Britain’s Oxford University and New Zealand’s Victoria University of Wellington.

The film — with the working title “The Tipping Point” — is being produced and directed by David Sington of DOX Productions and Simon Lamb of Oxford University, who collaborated several years ago to produce the acclaimed 8-hour BBC television series “Earth Story.”

The stars of the new film will be scientists who are involved in studying climate change.

“Al Gore’s ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ has helped increase many people’s awareness of climate change,” said Lamb. “In our film we want the audience to learn about the science of climate change from the scientists themselves and find out how they are tackling the problem.”

The film is expected to be released in 2009, both in theaters and on DVD.
