Our protocols for 100% SAFE video shoot during the COVID-19 pandemic (approved by our clients at Disney)
- We provide a highly-experienced Director of Photography with ZERO Covid-19 symptoms. He/she takes and records his own temperature the day before and the morning of the shoot.
- Before the shoot, the Director of Photography carefully wipes down all equipment with Clorox disinfectant wipes or 70% alcohol solution.– Before entering the location, the Director of Photography puts on a brand new sterile mask and gloves.
- The Director of Photography also carries spare masks, gloves, sanitizing wipes, tissues, and hand sanitizer.
- Hands are carefully sanitized once per hour on location, in accordance with CDC guidelines.
- The interviewee/talent stays out of the room during setup.
- The interviewee/talent does his / her own hair and makeup, with optional remote coaching from our makeup artist via Zoom.
- The Director of Photography maintains approved social distancing (at least 6 feet away) at all times.
- We use a boom pole microphone and/or allow the interviewee to self-place a sterilized lavalier microphone.
- The Director of Photography sets up a laptop or iPad next to the camera to get the correct eye line for the interview.
- Once the shot is completely set, and the interviewee is in place, the camera op snaps a digital picture of the monitor and sends it to the Client for approval.
- Optional: We send the Client an HDMI feed directly from the camera to see the entire shoot in real-time remotely. (This involves a bit of extra equipment and setup time.)
- If the shot needs to be adjusted, the interviewee /talent leaves the room if needed to maintain social distancing.
- If requested, the Director of Photography can stay outside the room and monitor everything remotely.
- The interview itself can be conducted by a remote Director via Zoom, Skype, or any similar platform. The Client can watch or participate.
- After the shoot, we begin the edit or upload the raw footage for digital delivery.
