Exposure Labs

About Exposure Labs

Exposure Labs is dedicated to telling and sharing stories that can change the world. 

Part film production company, part impact production company, Exposure Labs is a unique hybrid of the creation and distribution of stories. Based on our history with Oscar-shortlisted and Emmy-winning Chasing Ice and Chasing Coral, we have a robust foundation and commitment to supporting environmental storytelling. To build on this history, we launched Unstoppable, an initiative to support other environmental storytellers and the home of our Organizing Lab where we support leading environmental organizations in using film to advance their work.

Our Organizing Work

Despite the overwhelming evidence of climate change, we realize that the biggest obstacle to advancing climate solutions is political will and have dedicated our efforts to using film as a tool to move this needle. We began in Ohio by saturating Congressman Pat Tiberi’s district with dozens of screenings for our Dear Congressman Tiberi campaign. By capturing the reactions of hundreds of his constituents, we shifted his stance on climate change with Tiberi going on to join the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus. The campaign was also recognized with a DocImpactHi5 award.

For our most recent film Chasing Coral, we grew from a single district to the entire state of South Carolina and from shifting beliefs to advancing policy. In close partnership with Conservation Voters of South Carolina (CVSC), we hosted dozens of screenings to create a visible groundswell of support for clean energy across 12 counties. Legislators attended many of these events, going on the record in support of clean energy, and in May 2019 this public pressure helped pass the Energy Freedom Act unanimously in both the House and the Senate.
