As Missouri begins to re-open, and motion media production returns in our state, we wanted to create a resource page to offer guidelines and information on best safety practices.
Productions that shoot on location will have different safety challenges from those shot in a studio environment. There are many hurdles to safety, and we hope that this page can educate anyone who needs information on how the industry as a whole is handling this new normal.
To support those that are committed to safety we are rolling out a page on the MoMMA website ‘A Pledge of Safety For Industry Businesses During COVID-19‘ The page features the logos of Missouri production companies and vendors who pledge to establish safety protocols and are committed to enacting COVID-19 safety guidelines.
We must all work together, maintain safe distances while on set, wash hands frequently, wear masks, and follow guidelines to stop the spread of Covid-19, and. It’s up to each of us to be vigilant and to do our part.
Undoubtedly, there will be updates and additional information as we continue to navigate this pandemic. We will update this resource page as necessary. If you would like to suggest a website link to add to this page- email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
