With the Governor’s framework document for “Reopening Oregon” being released yesterday we have started to have specific conversations with filmmakers, producers, companies and partners like the OMPA, Portland Film Office, IATSE 488, SAG-AFTRA, & DGA about what safety protocols will now need to be in place for production, large and small, to resume here in Oregon.
To that end, we would encourage anyone with suggestions for what should be considered and/or included in these post-Covid production protocols to reach out to us with your thoughts. If you’re considering a shoot of any type please reach out to Oregon Film to get the latest updates on these protocols we all need right now.
It is imperative, now more than ever, that this industry not only lead the way but also ensure that we are doing everything in our power to ensure the safety of the talent and crews working on these projects as well as the communities and neighborhoods that these projects are working with.
This industry is an important part of the economy and culture of Oregon and it needs to be certain that every individual and community it touches in doing its creative work is safe and protected on all levels.
Please reach out, we are here to help.
