new zealand is pumping
New Zealand is a safe haven, succesfully managing the covid-19 virus and providing a safe production environment for filmmakers.
While borders remain closed to keep the virus at bay. The country is up and running. And production is pumping, operating within NZ’s Covid-19 Health and Safety Protocols. The industry has never been busier with international and domestic productions.
We have been successfully connecting international directors and producers with our amazing technicians, locations and wide multicultural talent pool. All via live streaming. The perfect solution to production in a pandemic.
Film Construction is operating under the NZ Screen Sector Health and Safety Protocols that have been stringently created for Covid-19. We can move freely about New Zealand and have unlocked all our amazing locations, and activated crew.
New Zealand works on a Four Level system. We are currently in Level One. Level Four being Lockdown, and Level One being life in the new normal. You can learn more about New Zealand’s Alert Level System here:
First we assess the project and build in necessary work safe practises. Then we act on those plans.
While New Zealand’s borders are closed we provide a variety of remote access solutions for those who cannot be with us. This includes live onset feeds as well as enviromental cameras so you can see what is happening on set, even if you are on the other side of the world.
As well as having a roster of amazing directors, we also offer proxy directors to partner with directors off shore.
health and safety
At Film Construction we've worked hard to create a set of Health & Safety Protocols to ensure your safety while working with us during this pandemic, and beyond.
A team comprised of NZ's key On-set Film Safety Operators are working with NZ’s governing health and safety body. They've written on-set safety protocols, that will allow filming activity to take place while meeting key health and safety guidelines, and ensuring best safety practices for all productions.
We’ve integrated these protocols into our workflow.
