In recent weeks, the industry has shown signs of increased activity with individual states and organizations releasing guidelines and recommendations to safely reopen production during the COVID-19 pandemic. As casting directors and talent representatives are critical players in the production process, we want to keep you up-to-date on the latest guidelines.
AICP (Association of Independent Commercial Producers) has published workplace guidelines that consider the health and wellness of all individuals involved with commercial productions. The complete guidelines can be found here.
Film Florida Recommendations
Last month, Film Florida released the first guide to ensuring clean and healthy sets in the U.S. The detailed recommendations include both on- and off-set protocols, including casting guidelines that call for remote casting sessions whenever possible.
Georgia Best Practices
Last week, Georgia became the first state to issue a comprehensive best practices guide for film and television production. With some productions slated to restart as soon as early July, Georgia’s guidelines were developed in cooperation with local studios and production companies.
Upcoming California Announcement
While Governor Gavin Newsom was expected to announce California’s guidelines for restarting film and television production earlier this week, he indicated on Tuesday that his recommendations are coming soon amid ongoing industry and labor discussions.
