Studios are closer to resuming filming in Los Angeles, but some major hurdles remain
Although California has allowed film and television production to resume starting this Friday, several obstacles remain before cameras can truly start rolling again.
A major step that still needs to be finalized is the development of craft-specific safety protocols. All of the major Hollywood guilds are developing safety requirements specifically for the protection of their members. One of those guilds, the International Cinematographers Guild, submitted its protocols for DPs and camera crews last week for consideration by the larger union IATSE and California’s Industry-Wide Safety Committee.
