Published on in Advice / Tips & Tricks

Epitome's Pandemic Production Safety Experts have put all their Production Tips in one place. Check out Epitome’s Pandemic Production Best Practices.


Epitome Risk has been on the front lines of Pandemic Production Safety since the beginning. With over one hundred combined productions, our experts have helped film & television companies minimize risk, avoid shutdowns, and eliminate outbreaks for over two years.

COVID-19 has changed every aspect of production and Epitome has helped guide the way to safety with industry-leading risk management. Not only have we actively prevented outbreaks on sets, but we have also been members of a vanguard team of risk management professionals who have created the pandemic safety procedures that are standard practices in the industry today.

For the very first time, we want to offer a distilled version of our road-tested, set-proven procedures for safely producing a motion picture or television show during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the second in a three-part series called BEST PRACTICES.

After a thorough Pre-Production, it is time to roll cameras, call “action,” and enter the world of principal photography. These are our Best Practices for Production.

We have created a sharable, downloadable infographic that quickly and easily illustrates how you can decrease your chances of a COVID-19-related shut down by following these vital procedures during production. We cover everything from production travel and set organization to shot lists and cast management.
