1. LEAN CREW
We look at this as an ‘essential personnel only’ kind of a situation.
Most collaboration happens remotely and we restrict the size of the crew to be as lean as possible to ensure there isn’t unnecessary gathering of people during shoots.
2. BEING THOROUGH
We provide a highly-experienced team consisting of a Cinematographer and a Sound Technician who have had ZERO COVID-19 symptoms.
And when we say zero, we mean zero.
Before the shoot, the crew carefully wipes down all equipment with 70% alcohol solution.
4. PROTECTIVE GEAR
Before entering the location, the crew puts on a brand new sterile mask and gloves.
The crew also carries spare masks, gloves, alcohol solution, cotton, sterile piece of cloth, and hand sanitizers.
5. HAND HYGINE
Before, during and after shoot, the crew sanitizes hands in accordance with guidelines issued by WHO
1. MINIMAL CONTACT
Only essentIal personnel would be allowed on set during setup. The crew would begin setup in a controlled environment while the interviewee stays out of room and called in only when needed.
To ensure safety and minimal contact at all times, The interviewee does his/her own hair and makeup.
3. CHOICE OF GEAR
As part of sound gear, we use a boom pole microphone and not a lapel mic to avoid all physical contact with the interviewee.
The crew maintains utmost social distancing, staying 3 to 4 feet away at all times
If the frame needs to be changed, the interviewee leaves the room if needed to maintain social distancing.
2. ADDITIONAL SHOTS
If B-roll is required, only the cinematographer will go around shooting that and ensure there is minimal contact with people around and that he/she is wearing protective gear.
We ensure that the crew sanitizes themselves and the equipment once after pack up.
