TV and Film Production to Resume Next Week Says California Gov.

There is one indispensable ingredient for any home theater, living room TV set up, tablet, smart phone, you name it: Content. Without new content, we are stuck in a world of reruns and old movies. The good news is the California moratorium on TV and movie production that was caused by COVID-19 will end next week.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has announced that productions may resume on Friday, June 12. While it remains to be seen how many productions resume immediately, the state is leaving the details regarding work/health guidelines to the entertainment industry to decide. This leniency is in contrast to extensive guidelines issued for casinos as well as schools and daycare centers.

Just because the state is largely staying out of regulating the entertainment industry does not mean that there will be major changes. According to an article in the Los Angeles Times, buffet style meals for crew will be eliminated and handheld props will get a sanitizing wipedown between each use

The three-month duration of the production shutdown is sure to create a gap in TV and movie releases. Nevertheless, with this news we can all look forward to the pleasures of consuming new content.

UPDATE

A new White Paper with proposed health and safety guidelines for motion picture, television and streaming productions while COVID-19 remains a concern, has been published by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers' Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force. Here is a direct link to the PDF.

Yeah been doing a lot of Zoom auditions, Zoom Script/Table Reads, and Zoom Actor Workshops lol... everyone is looking forward to returning to work but all agree they want to do it as safe as possible given the nature of filming that will be difficult for the actors themselves to maintain but everyone around them will do their part to limit exposure and wear mask and clean and so on. So this will be interesting that is for sure.

California will allow some movie theaters to reopen next week (a mistake in my judgement) but the restrictions may not allow many of them to do that. Selling only 25% of seating capacity alone might discourage major studios and distributors from putting their big movies in theaters here. Box office receipts are the first big cash cow for new releases. There are additional requirements for sanitizing the theaters and ways to maintain spacing that may prove to be too much for theater owners. Even with only a quarter of seats filled, I wouldn't trust people to behave responsibly in the buildings. My daughter was in an Old Navy in the Bay Area on Sunday and customers were drinking and eating in the store which meant lifting masks. She took one look and thought "feet don't fail me now" and got out of there. Imagine what could go on in a darkened movie theater. I still see too many people in local stores not wearing masks despite them being mandatory in enclosed public spaces. Our infected numbers have continued to rise, not as much as many other states but still, the term "flattening the curve" seems to be one of art rather than a reality based indicator. I say no thanks and will continue to be a "coward" and try not to put myself in situations that could make me a statistic.
