Mission: Interlock Media engages strategists in climate policy, media and underwriting to design and produce daily energetic and entertaining programming in response to climate change.
Results: We were amongst the first to popularize the term “Global Warming,” paying early testament to the linkage between climate change and war. Decades of fieldwork on indigenous rights, conservation and public health built the foundation of our involvement. Our advocacy multiplied tenfold by contributing to the movement to make radio and video into tools for the stewards of fragile lands—rainforests, reefs, and mangroves.
Target demographics: Countering climate change and inequity through great filmmaking
Geographic areas served: United States
Programs: We tackle demanding topics on film, radio, television, over the internet — anywhere we can reach those impacted, and those who can make an impact. We produce hard-hitting stories on climate change and sustainability, human rights and public health, indigenous peoples and wildlands protection.
It takes intellect and entertainment to engage audiences. Our mission is further multiplied through training others in investigative and interactive media and through collaborations on like-minded endeavors.
I was part of an organization that hired Interlock's "CEO" and had an absolutely horrendous experience working with him. He not only lied repeated, he stole monies allocated for a video news release--which he never created. Not only that, he used a music score that we explicitly paid for and rights to, and used that same score for a video he produced for another Cambridge organization. Furthermore, after the initial project was "completed", he held the Beta SP version of our video for ransom. I literally had to make a commando raid to Interlock's relocated location in Boston, with hidden microphone, to ascertain why Mr. Schwartz was withholding the release of property we paid for. He is not to be trusted! He is a scoundrel.
