The Sydney Morning Herald has reported that Macquarie Street has been a “mini-Hollywood” over the last week, mentioning The PM’s Daughter and Poker Face are still shooting under the new COVID restrictions.
The article goes on to explain that “one sector that’s clearly deemed essential by our government is the local film and television industry.” It also mentions the types of protocols you can expect if you are called to set during this time: “there will be stringent COVID measures on The PM’s Daughter set, including bi-weekly testing for all cast and crew, daily temperature checks on arrival and a dedicated COVID safety team on site.”
MCTV are committed to these protocols and ensuring that some level of activity is maintained in the film and TV industry during this difficult time. The industry has strengthened in the last 18 months due to Government financial support and the safe haven status of Australia from the pandemic attracting local and international productions. Like everybody, MCTV hopes this latest outbreak can be brought under control quickly and life can return to normal for everyone ASAP.
