COVID19 UPDATE - CURRENT MEASURES & EXEMPTIONS

COVID19 UPDATE - CURRENT MEASURES & EXEMPTIONS

Week commencing 30th November

Further restrictions, in relation to social interaction and COVID, are in operation throughout England until Wednesday 2nd December. From 2nd Dec England moves into a Tier system with the majority of the country being under Tier 2 restrictions. The full government guidance on the new rules can be viewed here

The new restrictions do not affect shoots - they can continue as before, including shooting in locations such as homes

Incoming Directors, DOPs & Artists contracted to an advertising production of an APA company are now exempt from the quarantine period on arrival into England. They are able to work immediately upon arrival whilst isolating in a ‘bubble’ - the production

The Government's travel corridors of countries exempt from quarantine on arrival into England (please note that this is not a UK wide policy and excludes arrival into Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland) is effective now and the full up to date list can be found here

The UK commercial production industry, led by our industry body APA - Advertising Producers Association, has successfully created a set of government recognised guidelines to shoot safely and responsibly and these can be viewed here. There are no government restrictions on size although social distancing of 1-2 meters remains in place. Studio spaces are open, including Mount Pleasant Studio which is where our London office is based

As members of the APA we strictly follow industry & government guidelines of health & safety around COVID-19. Please do not hesitate in contacting us if you would like to discuss these in more detail and how the guidelines will work on a production. We are able to answer any questions you might have on the current situation & remote production practices and are able to prepare & budget for your future productions
