Covid-19 Safety Precautions
Motion House is committed to taking precautions for Covid-19 safety very seriously. We have protocols in place to clean & disinfect our gear prior to, during and after jobs. We also use PPE and hand sanitizers for crew for everyone’s safety.
We know every job / workplace is unique with regard to safety, but we feel our equipment with its ability to help shoot / work remotely can help reduce exposure for crew and cast. Our Camera cranes, RC Cars, Remote Heads and Vehicles are ideal for maintaining social distancing, putting cameras near subjects without having crew be in contact with the Talent or near fellow crew or departments.
We have recently tested these practices on ESPN’s Top Rank Boxing summer series, thankfully with great success.
Before every job our gear will be wiped down or sprayed with Isopropyl Alcohol or other disinfectant cleaners to ensure we do our best to help stop the spread of Covid-19. We use Isopropyl Alcohol at 70% (IPA 70%) due to its ability to kill viruses and left on gear for 10mins.
We will check temperatures daily, as well as conduct health questionnaires regarding how the Crew is feeling that day and prior to shoot. We will also enforce wearing masks at ALL times and gloves when appropriate. There will be hand sanitizers at our work stations / vehicles and crew is trained on using them and cleaning work areas.
We would like to keep minimal physical interaction between crews /positions on jobs and maintain social distancing the best we can. This means cameras and gear be handed off without contact and the recommended 6’ from each other be kept in place.
Camera Car/ Vehicles
Mantis, our Camera Chase Car and all vehicles will be disinfected prior to going out on jobs and will be continually cleaned during shoots and after. All crew will wear masks while driving and while working on gear and setting up shots. Social distancing will be observed while setting up shots and also during building of gear the best we can. Mantis comes equipped with radio communications within the car and has a separate channel to speak with an outside radio for Director and Video Village.
We would normally have the Director within the Car but feel minimizing crew within the car is the best during these times. We have various ways of getting a video signal to a support vehicle or video village to direct from.
All our headsets will be disinfected before each job and placed in a sealed large ziplock. Headsets will remain in the care of that individual for the day and placed back in the bags when not in use. There will be NO cross wearing or sharing of headsets and it is the responsibility of the assignee to maintain that separation. Isopropyl alcohol will be provided to help keep everything clean. The headsets will be cleaned after every day and kept sealed in a new bag for the next day or job.
Thank you for adhering to these new protocols and trusting us with your production. We wish everyone a safe shoot and hope to continue to get us all back to working full time.
We look forward to working along with you again.
Thanks, Jim Mundell
