Hollywoods unions have announced that they have reached an agreement on pandemic protocols with major studios that will allow the broad resumption of production of films and television after six months of stagnant sets and widespread unemployment.
The Directors Guild of America, the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the Basic Crafts unions and the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists on Monday jointly announced the deal reached with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers after months of planning and negotiating.
The deal includes mandatory and comprehensive use of personal protective gear and testing of cast and crew members, and a dedicated coronavirus supervisor to oversee it all.
It requires the use of a zone system that strictly limits interactions between people on sets based on their jobs requirements. Those who must deal with more people will be tested more frequently and have more strict protective equipment and spacing requirements. Actors will be tested especially often because their on-camera work wont allow for many protective measures.

Will the governor shut them down?
Maybe this could be a national model. Every industry decides they're going to reopen.
The virus is smart.
Will kill you dead in church or a voting booth.
In a mostly peaceful BLM riot, playing NBA or making movies...it will just ignore you.
We need to return to Medieval Guilds so that each industry can establish rules for their members. In the time of Great Plague such things just make good sense. My barber, Theodoric of York said so.
How will they do the casting?
All wearing masks?
Theyll finally be able to make that Catwoman Licks Supergirl movie.
Are all the feature films and TV series going to be made with properly worn masks and all the actors keeping adequate social distancing?
How many story lines are going to be fitted into those limitations? I don’t see many depictions of how a a love scene might be shown, or any close encounter in a brawl scene.
Yes, have they cleared this with their Democrat Dictators?
Please, no more “Clutch Cargo” cartoon episodes of live action dramas.
“I dont see many depictions of how a a love scene might be shown”
Bold and the Beautiful took care of this issue in June.
Will anyone stop them?
Will Hollywood be deemed 'an essential service'?
Why can't every industry decide to reopen with their own precautions?
Will Hollywood get a special pass while every other industry is forced to remain closed?
Just blow up dolls? That’s old school these days no?
I guess instead of wearing G strings, they will now wear P strings (for pandemic).
just in time to implement the new oscar dicta regarding the necessary inclusion of large numbers of people of color, LBGTQWERTs, and the like in all movies ..
Viewers allege that they did it well. :-)
Just a guess but the lenses must have been smeared with vaseline or something. Low lighting as well. :)
