All participants of the in-person filming session are required to complete this brief health screening form within 24 hours of the video shoot. Please let us know immediately if any of the participants are exposed to or exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19.
For 2 running days up to the shoot and on the morning of the shoot. While fever is not the only indicator of COVID-19, it is a good indicator that you are ill and should not attend a shoot! All crew and cast members should conduct temperature checks prior to filming.
With the following items for use on-set:
It's best to avoid public transportation as much as possible!
If you must take public transportation, make sure to utilize your disinfectant bag before and after your trip.
Safe practice requires 6ft. distance between people.
Keep reading for more info on how to calculate whether your space is large enough for the amount of participants and crew members you will have on your shoot!
Locations require a minimum amount of usable space—meaning there are no immovable fixtures or furniture blocking the area—to maintain proper social distance. For any active crew members or talent, the minimum space per person is 113 ft2. For any non-active crew members or people in attendance, they need a minimum of 50 ft2. All of this is determined by CDC’s guideline of staying a minimum of 6ft apart.
So, for example, a 4-person crew of 2 Cinematographers, 1 Producer, and 1 person as talent requires a minimum of 452 ft2 of shoot space or a 21.25 x 21.5 ft room. A 5-person crew, with 2 Cinematographers, 1 Producer, 1 person as talent, and 1 person required by the client, requires 502 ft2 or a 22.5 x 22.5 ft. room. Always aspire to meet more than the minimum of space required.
Areas where the air stagnates can allow the virus to hang in the air longer. Try finding a location where you can open up doors or windows to promote air flow. Also, try to lower the use of A/C when possible, re-circulated air has been shown to be a cause of spread in cases where someone is able to transmit a high viral load.
Studies have shown that well circulating air and sunshine (aka UV rays) you get outdoors are proven to aid in lowering the transmission of the coronavirus. While you will still need to observe distancing, mask usage, and group size guidelines— you might find yourself breathing a little easier if everyone is outdoors.
All disposable disinfectants and single-use face masks.
Directly after finishing the shoot and also before AND after removing your face mask.
In your disposable bag once you are off-site.
This is to minimize the amount of items and surfaces your now-contaminated mask comes in contact with.
And any reusable face masks.
This should be done immediately upon returning home!
Keys, handbag—anything that was exposed on-site.
Please notify us immediately if any participants from the video shoot:
