In these times of uncertainty, it is my job as director and overseer of production to make sure the cast and crew working on set will remain safe and healthy. In order to ensure this, I will be providing my team with cleaning supplies. I will not allow more than seven people on set at a time, and social distancing will be enforced. In terms of catering, there will be no sharing of food; everything will be individually wrapped. The crew will be masked at all times and must remain in their designated positions. Any hair and makeup application will be done by the actor. Every prop touched will be disinfected before and after each shoot. Any location I intend to shoot at will not be around crowds or others at high-risk. I will be contacting the cast and crew often to make sure everyone is safe and healthy so that we can have the best on-set experience.
