Lionsgate Production Draft Revealed: Staggered Hours, CGI Extras and VR Location Scouting

TheWrap obtained an internal draft of Lionsgate’s still-developing plans to resume production

Lionsgate is considering the use of CG extras, VR scouting of locations and adopting so-called “French hours” to restrict shoots to 10-hour days and allow cast and crew to have rolling lunch breaks, according to a draft of new guidelines to safely resume film production following the coronavirus shutdown.
