I gathered some of the guidelines and protocols to present a way to continue film & video production during the COVID-19 pandemic. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, but these documents are a good start.
IATSE, together with SAG-AFTRA and DGA and health officials, submitted the following guidelines for the reopening of film, tv and video productions while minimizing the risk of spreading COVID-19.
Lionsgate Motion Picture group just released its ‘New Production Safety Guidelines.’ The guideline focuses on 4 main steps: Distance, Sanitation, Enforcement and Change.
We need a guideline for film & video production during Covid-19 before we have medication, vaccination, and enough tests available. I started it and now it is a Google Doc, open to comments by industry safety experts and crew members.

Film & video production needs cast & crew members working together in close proximity with one another. However, current conditions doesn’t allow that. Is there a way we can still produce content?
