Tackling the Carbon Footprint of Streaming Media

This one-year project is funded through the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada's program "Living within the Earth's Carrying Capacity.
With co-investigator Dr.
Stephen Makonin (SFU Engineering), research associate Dr. Radek Przedpełski, and PhD student Alejandro Rodriguez-Silva (SFU Engineering), we are surveying the engineering literature on the carbon footprint of streaming media in order to translate engineering findings into accessible terms, identify gaps in the research, and make policy recommendations.
With Sophia Biedka (SFU Film BFA alumna) and Joey Malbon (SFU MA in Contemporary Arts) we are programming the
First Annual Small-File Media Festival.
