Film industry fishies! After covid, what is the average of projects your company handles each year?

I work for two different companies - one is larger and handles maybe 3-5 a year, the smaller is my own company and I usually have 1-2 things going.

Before covid, the average number of projects my company handled each year was around 10. Since covid hit, that number has dropped to around 5.

During the Covid the contracts were activated almost twice as much due to the enclosure of people, series, programs, and reality shows, everything was crazy. Today the trend continues.

Small time tv series were the norm when covid started. Slowly been recovering since last year. Hope to do some bigger projects with our company this year and the next.

It has dropped almost half when Covid first rolled around. We've been recovering pretty steadily since then, thankfully.

We haven't fully recovered yet. After covid, we are only handling almost half of our previous projects. 4 artists also left the company.

Mostly low budget films. But since this year the company has gone on to bigger projects more than before. I am excited for this next phase!

What advise do you have moving forward with a career. I left my employer after18 yrs in June. my boss was laid off before covid, they didnt post his job for 2 years. I ran the site for that time, received many accolades. When it posted i got no interview. In June a company made an offer for same money for board director I took it. Turns out they were pitching lies. They had no integrity and were incompetent. I left this month. I haven’t been out of a job 25 years. How do I pick myself back up?

Do any real people actually want schools to reopen as it stands now? Im hearing so much about it but it feels like a weird disconnected political thing and not a live humans with kids thing.
*Obv the goal is to get covid under control so kids can go back safely, this is assuming infection rates stay steady or continue to climb

The same boat? Stay safe!
