However, as lockdown restrictions are loosened and life slowly starts to return to a new normal Chief, as one of the leading production companies in the country, has been working with industry bodies, clients and crew to establish processes and procedures to ensure all types of productions can continue again with the health and safety of staff, clients, crew and cast as paramount.
We have transformed our 10,000 sq ft studios into a COVID-19 safe environment by implementing new working practices. We have been working with heads of departments to develop a workflow for all departments which follows social distancing rules. We understand that some imporant members of the shoot such as agency colleagues of clients might prefer to work from homeso we have created a remote viewing system where we connect the camera with a platform that enables both to view and collaborate with the on set film team.
