How are you managing shoot protocol on zoom? Is it a free for all? Client , agency , production on one zoom call and everyone talks during shoot? Or separate zoom calls?

One room for camera feed(s) and witness camera, one room for agency/client chats, 1 room for director sidebar chats so that the creatives or agency producer can funnel comments to the director rather than bombarding them by a large group, which would basically be like everyone hovering over the directors monitor.

Sounds like a strong plan. Was it a smooth process?

it actually can work better than if everyone from agency and client is in the same video village.

1. test the set up prior to shoot (and not in the pre pro
2. test the internet capabilities at your location(s)
3. test internet with clients and agency team

during the shoot:

one room with the camera(s) feed via q-take (or similar) app or with that feed going to zoom.

you can have separate zoom rooms for agency and client, one just for agency, one just for client, one for agency to producition, and one for all to interact.

or

you can use multiple platforms/apps to support these different lines of communication.
if it is earlier to have all agency via whatsapp or ichat texts use that.
if it easier for clients to chat amongst themselves via microsoft teams great.

just designate who are the key communicators between groups.

remind everyone of “on set” protocol

recognize that this set up allows for different “semi-private” conversations to happen without being awkward.

remember everything takes longer in COVID-time.

feel fortunate you are working and producing work.

get EVERYTHING nailed down by pre pro.

Zoom has been amazing on the shoots I’ve been on.

Client/agency all in one breakout room with camera feed. We had scripty in the room as well so they could write down any comments in the chat.

We used group texting for creatives / producer / account.

Another text with account / client.

3 shoots down, all smooth. Just have to keep your eye on zoom and text so it can be a lot. But still successful!

No concerns over hacking? Nothing over Zoom is encrypted.

Cuetake for camera feed to client and agency, zoom for client and agency, Zello for creative team chat to line producer and director directly.

Question: I currently work as an inside sales account manager selling a wide portfolio of IT products. I’ve been recruited for a role that would be an outside sales role selling ONLY a software solution that Im able to sell at my current company (but usually don’t due to other options that we are compensated better off of.) The new role would have some overlap with current customers that I work closely with now (one being a VERY large client.) Would this violate a non-compete/solicitation?
