PLANNING YOUR PRODUCTION DURING COVID-19
We’ve put together the below resources to help plan your shoots in the U.S. & Canada with the safety of clients, contributors, and crew being the focal point. Get in touch with us anytime to talk through the specifics with one of our coordinators. We are here to help.
CREW SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
At any time prior to the shoot, if a crew member feels sick, or has symptoms of COVID-19, THEY MUST STAY HOME and notify their Atlantic coordinator immediately.
Avoid travel on public transport and use own vehicle when possible.
Crew members should wear appropriate protective equipment. Details may depend on the client’s requirements and situation but will ALWAYS include face masks and gloves.
Maintain 6x feet between yourself and talent. To the degree that crew can also maintain distance from each other that should be considered. Do NOT shake hands with anyone on set. Avoid touching any personal belongings of the contributor.
If possible, rely on boom mic audio only. If a wireless lav is required, the lav should be sanitized and left at the talent seating position before their arrival.
Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use hand sanitizer with at least 60%-70% alcohol if soap and water are not available. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Crew to bring antiseptic wipes (when and where available based on availability). Wipes should be used on doorknobs, tables, etc. Avoid using other crew members’ work tools and equipment, when possible. Always clean and disinfect gear such as case and camera handles, mics, tripod heads, etc. before and after use.
Our Approach to Safety
Here’s a brief overview of what we’re doing to keep everyone safe. Our crews can also follow protocols mandated by your team.
These are just some of the ways production can still be done during the pandemic. Some set-ups may need to be tailored to your specific shoot, and our coordinators are happy to work through those details with you.
*Please note some set-ups currently require longer lead times due to equipment and crew availability.*
