We’ve had a few clients ask us recently about COVID-19 restrictions and the impact this could have on creating video content. It’s a confusing time with new restrictions being introduced on what feels like a daily basis, so here we have clarified what the latest guidelines mean for video production. 

Can I still create video during coronavirus Tier 1, 2 and 3 restrictions?

The short answer is yes, the shoot can go ahead.  By adhering to government guidelines we can continue to shoot, even under Tier 3.

Tell me more...

The new tier system is directed at social behaviour (including the hospitality industry) and not at work places or productions, as confirmed by The APA (Advertising Producers Association). This means that our shoots can still go ahead with the relevant safety measures in place.

Ensuring that everyone on a shoot is safe is our number one priority. Our Head of Production, Tristan, is a registered Covid Supervisor having passed the APA COVID-19 Shooting Guidelines Assessment Test and will ensure all safety measures are implemented on all of our shoots. 

In the links below, we have included Bear Jam’s Steps To Staying Safe On Set during COVID-19. This document covers the measures that we follow on sanitary precautions and managing crew and interactions.

Following these guidelines, we have continued to shoot safely and successfully, from a studio shoot for Philadelphia with Davina McCall to hitting the road to capture Osprey’s EV charging network.

There is also always the option to look at creating animated content or filming remotely – this allowed us to work throughout the national lockdown during Spring. Recently we have created animation for Bavarian Nordic for World Rabies Day and utilised remote production techniques to promote Netflix’s Eurovision film. 

So, whatever your video needs are we can assure you that Bear Jam is able to safely carry out the project and adhere to the latest Government guidelines. Please do get in touch if you have a project in mind that you would like to discuss with the team.
