We're excited to share an amazing video created by We Are Tilt to highlight how we can safely, get the cameras rolling, during this pandemic. It has been such a pleasure to be part of the project and supply one of our RED Monstro cameras with Canon Sumire Lenses.
At Pro Motion we have been open throughout the lock down period with a reduced team supporting production as and when needed. Working through this period has enabled us to create, shape and implement our COVID secure plan.
Our priority has been to ensure that our buildings are safe for all our staff and visitors and that we can support your production whilst promoting and enforcing our COVID / Hygiene policies.
These policies have been created based on Government and Industry advice, they outline our processes and highlight the best practices that you should adhere to when hiring and working with professional filming equipment.
We Are Tilt have demonstrated how we can creatively work together to still get on to location and film during the pandemic. it's important we all work together to support each out, and ensure we are following clear guidelines laid out firstly by the Government and Public Health England and secondly by our industry bodies.
We've always been passionate about taking the time with equipment preparation for our clients, now we're keeping the same diligent procedures but adding our hygiene policies to ensure that we can be as safe and covid secure as possible.
- Once a job has been confirmed, our technicians will begin to prepare your equipment, they will start by washing their hands and will continue to sanitise frequently throughout the process.
- When the the equipment has finished being tested and prepared it will be re-sanitised by a technician who will use single-use gloves and wipe down all the equipment touch points which will include flight case latches, handles, zips and so on. For your peace of mind the bags / cases will have our brand new sanitised labels clearly displayed.
- If we are delivering the equipment to you with one of our drivers, you will see that they will be wearing PPE and we have also implemented contact-less equipment handovers.
Of course a lot of our staff are working from home, so you'll be speaking to people spread across the country ready to take bookings and provide technical advice and support.
We are also working hard to ensure that we are limiting any bottle necks at all our offices, by focusing on pre-agreed drop off and collections for all kit and limiting visitors with remote demos on zoom.
It is vital to us we all work together to allow filming to be safe and that we make sure all our staff and clients feel secure every step of the way.
With thanks to We Are Tilt.
