With so much conflicting information out there, it’s refreshing to have clarity!
Here is a useful update from Steve Davies, Chief Executive at the Advertising Producers Association, below regarding the ability for production to continue even in a multi-tier environment.
“The Government has announced that from tomorrow London is subject to Tier 2 Local Covid Alert Level Very High Restrictions. Tier 2 only has one additional restriction to Tier 1: households cannot mix indoors.
Being placed in Tier 2 does not affect productions or prevent you from filming or working. You can attend a shoot or any other part of the production process that you can do better by being there, rather than being at home.
The Government says: “Businesses and venues can continue to operate, in a COVID-secure manner, other than those that remain closed in law” @ Gov.uk. See too our mail out to members which went out on Tuesday: New Three Tier COVID Restrictions – Productions Can Continue!
Coronavirus Update #61 on a-p-a.net. Please reassure agencies and advertisers that you’re working with, that you can continue to produce their commercials – the enemy is misinformation so we need clients to hear the facts – productions can continue. “
