We have shot 8 projects in 6 states with COVID protocols, and our team continues researching and educating ourselves on the proper safety protocols and precautions to keep our cast, crew, clients, and the general public safe. We are taking the Covid-19 pandemic very seriously. We have a very detailed document with Best Practices for Production that we follow onset and provide to the Agency, Client, and Crew to keep everyone as safe as possible. Reach out to get a copy of our COVID safety guidelines.
“On behalf of our clients, I just wanted to say thank you for such a flawless photoshoot. Clients were raving yesterday about how not only did we get phenomenal shots, but how buttoned-up you and your whole team are. COVID brings us challenges, that is for sure, but you wouldn’t have known that by how on top of things you and the crew were.”
As safety has always been a priority on set, every production will be assessed for its individual level of risk, and our team will be prepared with a detailed safety plan in place to follow. During our research on the best practices to take, Jason and Talia completed certification in the OSHA Production COVID Control Course. This course provided valuable information on new safety procedures, which we are following to allow us to work as safely as possible while doing our best to lessen the spread of the virus onset.
“We are so pleased with the images and how the shoot went. You made our first remote campaign shoot a walk in the park!!!”
COLLABORATION AND VIRTUAL VIDEO VILLAGE
Seamless collaboration with the agency and client is essential on our shoots, and our team has the capabilities to offer live 2-way interactive remote photo review and remote video village on location. We have solutions for on-location remote viewing with Cellular wifi technology and locations with internet service. You can listed to a recent interview recorded for 'Dear Art Producer' where I discuss with agent Heather Elder the different streaming technologies we use on-set and on-location, among discussing other Covid related production solutions.
“You guys really made our first “covid shoot” as close to being there as it could possibly be, and the results are beautiful.”
Shooting projects with leaner crews and using real people talent is something we are very familiar with and will be valuable moving forward with productions. You can read about a photo and motion production we created recently from start to finish using a two-person crew in this recent interview.
VIRTUAL CASTING OF REAL PEOPLE AND FAMILIES
Casting authentic characters and capturing real moments and connections has always been paramount in our shoots, and we have always loved working with real people talent (real families / real couples, etc.) Using real people talent is even more critical now, and we are working with fantastic casting partners with virtual casting options in place.
We have incredible local production teams in place throughout the country. Jason has been hiring local producers, crew, and talent for almost every role on the crew for years. On most shoots in the last three years, Jason was the only person to travel in for shoots. Moving forward, this will continue to be a priority for us, allowing us to reduce travel. We have been collaborating with local production teams during this time to ensure we are all working together on the appropriate safety protocols and precautions and are aligned on our detailed safety plan related to Covid-19.
