Yup, just had a client cancel sending anyone to the shoot. Guess there’s an upside to everything!

likefunny

Clients only wanting a local director and crew, who don’t travel in any way, shape or form, while simultaneously limiting the shoot location based on tax rebates and/or product issues, leading to some odd requests, like “We need an A-list director who’s a specialist in tilt-shift photography and babies and has pharma experience, in Olathe, Kansas.”

Oddly specific location, El Prez. Know a good tech company in Olathe? 🤔

It wasn’t but then someone vaccinated just got covid so the rules are changing.

After a year of postponing a production overseas, client decided to get it done finally this month.
The only condition was for the agency to be there, while they (client) remained remote.


Surprise surprise….delta, and this country where the production is taking place, has such red numbers not even the agency is probably allowed to travel anymore.

We will still shoot, TBD fully remote or “hybrid”.
What a time to be alive.

YES, but the show must go on.

Going on a shoot irl next week 😬😬

I’m curious if they’ll start bringing back rapid Covid tests on shoot days

Interesting so it may come back for us. I’ve had to learn to tell clients last year if they want a shoot they have to cover the cost of Covid tests, PPE and a “medic” who ensures social distancing, etc. 👀
