NEEDaFIXER Issues Corona Safety Guidelines for Filming


Our discount partner NEEDaFIXER has recently published a set of safety guidelines aiming to provide protection against Corona infections while filming. The measures, which are being implemented by NEEDaFIXER when providing their services, are derived from best practices regarding safety precautions developed as part of the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Global film production is slowly preparing to resume, with many countries relaxing some of the more stringent measures currently in place. Project teams may be eager to resume filming and while doing so, safety will be paramount. That is why NEEDaFIXER has released new, comprehensive filming guidelines that demonstrate how the company will adhere to best practices in the aftermath of COVID-19.

NEEDaFIXER is a multiple award-winning global film production house, powered by dedicated teams of producers, directors and fixers in over 100 countries. The company's experts have created detailed guidelines for safe filming, by defining the measures that will prevent contagion at any cost, and in complete accordance with government medical advice.

The guidelines include the following protective measures:

• Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and location / equipment disinfection

• Social distancing and safe transportation

• Personal disinfection and waste management

• Location and catering management

Here you can read the full, in-depth NEEDaFIXER guidelines on how safety on set will be ensured.


NEEDaFIXER can also answer any questions you might have regarding country-specific guidelines, while a worldwide network of producers and fixers are prepared to help you with the planning of protective measures specific to your shoot. Whether that’s through tailoring guidelines to suit your set, or sending a unit manager to supervise your production, ensuring the guidelines are followed effectively.
