The Film and TV industry has responded to the latest lockdown professionally; working with Government to ensure film sets that are still operating are safe, postponing some upcoming productions and making sure legal obligations are fulfilled where shoots have had to be cancelled.
Some shoots are still going ahead where they can. Last year, Children of the Corn, was filmed entirely during lockdown with clever filming techniques to ensure that social distancing was maintained throughout the shoot. Although work in film and TV is a lot of fun, it is still “work” and for the most part can’t be undertaken at home. If you score a job during this time, please ensure you follow the COVID-19 protocols sent to you.
Pre-production submissions for upcoming TV series, films and TVCs are still happening as production companies get organised for returning to set. There may be longer than usual delays between successful submission and being on set. If you get a job, we will keep you updated about where you need to be and when.
Most of all take care, follow the health advice and hang in there. As usual, we are working hard to ensure that we place as many people as possible, both now and when life returns to normal.
