Here is another MG Kids exclusive interview with one of the contestants in the 2011 MorristownGreen.com Film & Music Festival.

First- and second-graders from the Unity Charter School created a musical entry, Unity Charter Recycles Smarter, about a boy who must learn the value of recycling when he moves to a new school.
“It teaches all about recycling and how you don’t have to be using big containers to recycle; recycling can be as little as using trash to make something new,” says the students’ teacher, Amy Maturin. To the kids, sustainable means “protecting the world and making sure that we do our part to make sure that all the natural wonders of the world stay the way they are.”

Each child had a job so they could get this movie done.

“Some kids were actors, everybody helped write the script, some kids helped with props and sets and getting everything ready,” said Maturin. She and one other teacher were the directors for the movie. Every movie has a message, Maturin said, and this movie’s message is: “It is not that hard to recycle, and it is a good lesson to learn.”

The students are really excited to share their hard work with everyone at the festival!

This year’s film festival is part of a daylong Green on the Green held at Pioneer Park at Headquarters Plaza, Morristown, on Saturday, Sept. 17. MorristownGreen.com is partnering with Sustainable Morristown for the event, which will feature local entrepreneurs showcasing the latest green technologies during the day; musical performances throughout the afternoon; and the Fourth Annual MorristownGreen.com Film (&Music!) Festival in the evening. Viewers will vote for Best Picture, and trophies and prizes will be awarded for fans’ favorite videos. We expect a large crowd from Greater Morristown to be joined by visitors to the Gran Fondo NJ, a new bicycling event that should draw thousands to town. MG also is pleased to welcome BASF and Covanta Energy as corporate sponsors this year.
