Project Synopsis

Additional Comments & Safety Protocol: 

COVID-19 restrictions will be in place, we will have a small cast and crew and stick to one location of shooting only. Our shoot will be 3 days, with cast there only for their needed coverage.
Before coming to set all Cast and Crew are required to complete a self-assessment. Further questions will be asked upon arriving to set. Cast and Crew are encouraged to bring their own masks to set as well as any other PPE that they may have; however, disposable masks will be provided. Hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes will be available to everyone on set. High touch areas like washrooms and equipment will be sanitized frequently. Physical Distancing between departments will be in place.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to give exact shoot dates at this moment, but the entirety of the film will be shot in Mid-Late Feburary. Shoot dates are subject to postponement and cancellation depending on BC restrictions. In the case of any production changes, cast members will be notified as early as possible and will be given a first right of refusal once new shoot dates are set.
