First Earth: Uncompromising Ecological Architecture — 4 Comments

  1. I agree with you Owen about the gap in showing various technologies related to Earthen Building. I do think the movie does a good job promoting Earth as the most ubiquitous and sustainable building material. I read on the website that he is producing a DVD that apparently will have more professional production values. I wonder, do you have a full length video in the works?

    • Do I have a full length video in the works? Oh no. I’m just doing short educational video clips to demonstrate good building techniques. A full length video on earthbag is one of the things needed to help propel the movement forward, along with more testing and more books.

  2. I just watched all 12 First Earth videos. Hmm, what can I say? They’re quite good and I still recommend them, but at the same time I have to say they fall short of my expectations. Twelve videos and not one mention of earthbag building… or rammed earth… or earthships. That’s a huge gap, a blind spot when you’re talking about earthen building. And the sound quality was not up to professional standards.
