Location Info

  • Across the UK, it is recommended to social distance where possible, masks are to be worn in public places and health protocols are in place.
  • Able to travel within each country and between countries. Self-drive advised or single unit vehicles / large enough vehicles to ensure social distancing.
  • Studio shoots possible. Each studio will have their own COVID-19 policies. Follow UK Government guidelines on physical distancing and use of PPE in the workplace as a minimum standard. Adhere to physical distancing (2m apart) wherever possible - placing markers across sites to indicate the 2m distance will help crew to remember this.
  • Where 2m is not viable, 1m with risk mitigation is acceptable. Mitigating actions include:

- Use of masks and/or PPE.

- Further increasing the frequency of hand-washing and surface cleaning.

- Keeping the activity time involved as short as possible.

- Using screens or barriers to separate people from each other.

- Using back-to-back or side-to-side working (rather than face-to-face)
whenever possible.

- Reducing the number of people each person has contact with by
using ‘fixed teams or partnering’ (so each person works with only a few others).

  • Location shoots possible (interior and exterior). Important to allow teams to work in sub groups - for example - art department to dress, then lighting team to go in after and pre-light - cleaning in between and overnight and shooting in locations large enough to allow for social distancing to be adhered to. Fogging to be utilised pre and post shoot where necessary. Providing PPE for people who need to be in close contact (HMU for example).
  • Public spaces open. Council permit lead times vary per shoot and per region.
  • Suppliers open.
  • Great regional crew available.
  • Advised locations are a reasonable travel distance from the crew hubs (London, Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Glasgow). Alternative options can be explored if required (private accommodation, Airbnbs, motorhomes etc.).
  • Agency/client travel to location can be organised by a private car service upon request.
