The COVID-19 pandemic has changed everything—especially the way things are run on a film set.
2020 went downhill quickly after January. With the COVID-19 pandemic altering life as we know it, most industries suffered a harsh blow. Unfortunately, this meant that a lot of productions in Hollywood had to pause filming until further notice.
Adjusting to the new regulations posed by the CDC hasn’t been easy (or rid of error). After months of trying to figure out how the industry could continue business as usual, some productions have begun filming again under new restrictions. Through this new way of running a set, there’s been a new on-set position in Hollywood known as a “COVID Compliance Officer.”
This role has become crucial in the film world. Without it, productions would grind to a halt. Tom Cruise’s now-famous on-set COVID rant brought to light how high the stakes are on a film set during this time.
