White Paper is Released Regarding Covid-19 Production Guidelines
A white paper has been released, titled “Proposed Health and Safety Guidelines for Motion Picture, Television, and Streaming Productions During the COVID-19 Pandemic (June 1, 2020).” The guidelines are presented by the Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force associated with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (“AMPTP”).
As a courtesy to our studio and production clients, we have provided a download of the white paper here (we had trouble finding the document):
