On this installment of The PAPER STREET Podcast, hosts Shawn and Becky are joined by a trio of filmmakers to discuss the current and ever-changing parameters of shooting during COVID. The guests—each of whom have had experience producing features, television, and commercials since the pandemic began—are Michael May (producer, director, and actor - GHOSTS OF THE OZARKS, Auto/Biography), Amber Geneva (UPM, producer, and actress - THE RANGER, DON'T LOOK BACK), and Ashleigh Snead (producer, line producer, and Paper Street Pictures' own Director of Development - SCARE PACKAGE, THE PALE DOOR).
They talk about some of the many challenges that COVID-19 is presenting to film productions of all sizes, including budgeting in additional time and days for coronavirus-related delays; following CDC, SAG, and testing guidelines to avoid a shut down; even touching on a few silver linings of the pandemic, like the reduction of paper, food, and waste on sets. This is a single-topic episode that's timely and full of useful information and tips for any independent filmmakers who may be going into production soon or are curious what a film set looks like at the moment, and will look like for the foreseeable future.
