PROJECT INDIE HOPE IS HERE TO HELP. The global pandemic has greatly altered the way we live and conduct business. The costs of production under the protocols of state, federal and union rules can make the difference of making a film, or not. PROJECT INDIE HOPE has a NO COST COVID testing solution to help the independent filmmaker not carry the burden of costs, as filmmaking is already a very difficult task. PROJECT INDIE HOPE will arrange for FDA/CDC/SAG-AFTRA approved laboratory Covid-19 PCR testing at NO COST for test administration, and laboratory processing. Contact us and we will help get your production tested safely and without costs. https://projectindiehope.com/

The Producers Guild of America’s (PGA) Production Safety Task Force has published a comprehensive safety guide for producers as they go back to work titled “COVID Safety Protocols for Producing Independent Productions.” Through the collective power of the Guild’s network of producers and deep industry knowledge, these guidelines offer a comprehensive and detailed recommendation of the steps independent producers should take to help secure the safety of cast and crew during the COVID-19 pandemic. These guidelines serve as a resource for independent producers to help navigate the existing guidelines and rules set by the industry’s studios, unions and guilds.

In Location Considerations
Consider all productions to be filming on “remote locations.” In this way, the company will be confined to authorized “safe zone” areas where they will only interact with other members of the cast and crew. Collaborate with third party vendors such as restaurants and hotel staff regarding their procedures for maintaining a safe environment. Find ways to limit or remove the public from cast and crew “safe zone” areas. Consider offering a “bonus fee” to crew members who choose to remain in the “safe zone” during off hours rather than expose themselves to unapproved production areas.

In Location Considerations
In order to maintain a consistent, controlled environment, film one practical location per day. Avoid any company moves during the filming day. Arrange for all location moves to happen overnight. This will allow the Health and Safety teams to prepare a safe workspace in advance.

Have grips or props build a plexiglass shield on a rolling platform, preferably something quickly moveable by one person that can be put between two people when social distancing is not possible, such as when they look together at a prop or script. These shields also are helpful in shops and in production offices where social distancing is not possible at all times.

Have HSS or designee work with Producer, Director and AD’s to develop a plan for specific “face mask/hand washing” breaks for the main shooting unit. This is Zone A or a subset of Zone A(i.e., the team that is required for momentum to continue).   Have HSS work with AD to develop a plan for specific breaks for the crew at a frequency that enables all crew to have at least5 breaks in a 10-hour day (i.e., one break every 2 hours). Have HSS or designee call out “face mask/hand washing” breaks for crew members to cycle out of set and take a break from wearing a mask and wash their hands. This entails prior delineating of all Zones on productions into sections (Zone A1, Zone A2, Zone B1, B2, B3, etc.) and allowing each section to “take a break” in a way that is the least disruptive to the shooting crew as possible.
