What you need to know about resuming film production

Production in Hollywood has been stalled since April, forcing some releases to be pushed out weeks, or even months due to COVID-19. When will studios start physical production again? It depends, but once they do, there will be a variety of challenges to safely resume. On set, safety protocols and processes will be required throughout the value chain. Another key challenge will be managing production insurance, since COVID-19 exposure is unlikely to be covered by insurance companies. Productions will need to manage risks and liabilities by quantifying continencies and undertaking self-insurance.

In this podcast, Susan Goldsmith and Danny Ledger, leaders in Deloitte Consulting’s Entertainment practice, join host Hanish Patel to discuss a four-phased approach to restarting film production. In the face of a pandemic that isn’t going away any time soon, these leaders discuss how studios will need to fundamentally change the way they operate by implementing safe practices for physical production. They also explore the use of technology in managing the restart and how MyPath™ to Work—a modular technology solution that can empower organizations to manage new workplace health risks—can be used to provide visibility, along with secure tracking and tracing.

In order to get actors kissing on screen again, you’re going to have to have these end-to end capabilities that allow you to manage every different aspect of the journey…
