These days everyone is familiar with the power created by renewable energy. Solar and wind energy news are covered regularly by major media outlets and much of the nation has launched into the green energy movement. But it’s possible Hollywood started it all. The movie industry has been coming up with creative energy solutions for decades. From the lightning strike that brought one of the most famous monsters to life to the little old man who used balloons to fly, America’s film producers have embraced alternative energy. Some of these sources are fact based, some are downright ridiculous and some have even sparked real-life inventions!

Teryl Dactyl as Snow White. Here is what she had to say about the shoot…
“Every now and then I get a comment that I look like Snow White… so I thought I’d do a shoot based on the classic fairytale version. Snow White comes upon a very enticing red apple… takes a bite, and then falls into a deep slumber. Now all she needs is a prince to save her!”
