COVID-19 – NEW WAYS OF WORKING

We have put measures in place to prepare the studio for a new safe way of working. We aim to ensure that we take all the mitigating actions possible to reduce the risk of transmission of Covid-19 between those working on and attending shoots at the studio.

We only have one Stage, so there is no chance of encountering people not working on your shoot.

Sanitation

How many people can be on the stage and in ancillary spaces?

From July 19th 2021 the one meter rule not longer applies. However, as the safety and wellbeing of our clients is paramount, we have decided to leave the original ‘2 meter social distancing’ information below so our clients can best judge the studio’s suitability for their project.

We have looked at our floor plan based on 2m (rather than the “1-metre-plus” rule) between people and concluded that a maximum of 12 people can safely be on the stage itself with a 2m space between crew members. We have a raised client area above the stage (1 person), large green room (4 people), kitchen (2 people), props area (3 people), one changing room (1 person) and one makeup/wardrobe room (2 people). Now that the “1-metre-plus” rule is in effect, larger numbers of crew can be on set, at the production company’s discretion. We have rolls of yellow fluorescent tape that can be used to mark out 4 m2 squares on the studio floor and in other areas of our building as required. We are happy to do a Zoom or FaceTime recce so that you can work out in advance where to place crew and clients.

There is an exit door from the Green Room to the street that can be used to allow a separate entrance and exit, if requested.

From July 4th 2020 “A “1-metre-plus” approach states that members of the public can be 1 metre away from each other as long as other measures are put in place to limit the transmission of the virus.”

You can download a detailed scale plan of the stage and ancillary areas here.

We can place monitors in the raised Client Area and in the Green Room if a client is attending the shoot. We have a 150MB upload speed fibre broadband connection for live remote shoots and for playback to clients/staff supervising a shoot remotely using Q-take or similar systems.

Drinks and catering

Optional additional Green Room

We have an additional 18ft x 12ft Green Room available as and when required to allow client, agency or talent to be further socially distanced. It has a desk, makeup mirrors and sofas/armchairs.

We will do our best to make the studio a safe environment, however in shooting at the studio, clients do so at their own risk. Mount Pleasant Studios Ltd does not take any responsibility for transmission of the COVID-19 virus that might have taken place on its premises.
