COVID has changed everything. Things that we used to take for granted are no longer safe and we have to learn new ways to do the things we need to do. Now that most people are working remotely, shooting a film has suddenly become risky and difficult. If you have to film something you will need to think about your production in new ways and be prepared to make a lot of changes in your production schedule.
Filming during COVID means no more large shoots. You can’t have more than a few people together during shoots and you will need to keep things spaced out so you can observe social distancing. This makes the logistics very difficult and it can lead to a lot of touchy issues. Many films have had to be put on hold but sometimes you just have to shoot things and you just can’t wait for the virus to be over.
If you have to do a shoot it is crucial that you spend a lot of time planning it out so that you have everything you need ready to get when you are ready to do the shoot. Everyone who will be involved in the shoot will need to be tested for the virus before the shoot and they should also be tested daily during the shoot. Plan to have the shoot done as quickly as possible.
People involved in the shoot will need to avoid going out and they will need to socially distance on the set. You want to make sure that everything is set up far in advance so you don’t have as many potential problems. You don’t want to end up having things go wrong at the last minutes that could cause problems for the shoot.
It is very important that you remain patient when you are trying to do a shoot during the virus since things are so unstable. Doing as much planning as possible will make things easier and ensure that your shoot goes better. You want to try to reduce any problems and make things as easy as possible. When you are working with the film company you have to try to avoid contact with as many people as possible so you don’t run into problems.
The last thing you want to do is to get your staff sick. You have to protect them at all costs so you need to stay on top of things. You don’t want problems with your film and you have to avoid exposing your crew to COVID. Having a plan is crucial and your plan has to include contingency plans in case things go wrong. Take your time and get all of the pieces in place before you start the shoot.
COVID is a serious threat to any business and it makes it harder to get things done. If you have to do a shoot during COVID you have to make sure that you protect everyone involved in the shoot so they don’t get sick.
