The Safe Way Forward

The Safe Way Forward

The DGA, SAG-AFTRA, IATSE and the Teamsters issued a joint report for COVID-19 Safety Guidelines. 

The guidelines include recommendations for testing and department-specific protocols to provide a safer workplace for cast and crew in a pre-vaccine COVID-19 world, to be tailored to each production.

  • PART ONE: Guidelines for a safe set in the current environment
  • PART TWO: To test or not to test… is not a question it turns out
  • PART THREE: A virtual tour through the Zone System
  • PART FOUR: Departmental considerations

"We have been fortunate to have made two movies in Maine — The Way We Get By and Beneath The Harvest Sky.” Maine is a very special state in that there are so many options for locations. Given its size, you can travel to northern Maine, southern Maine, all along the coast, and tell a number of different stories in totally unique worlds with each film having very distinctive looks. The abundance of locations combined with the incredible generosity of the people and communities, make filmmaking in Maine a pure joy. We would not be filmmakers today without the support from the people of Maine and we will be forever grateful."

- Gita Pullapilly and Aron Gaudet, The Way We Get By and Beneath the Harvest Sky

"Hands down, Karen Carberry Warhola in the Maine Film Office was the most supportive person I’ve ever spoken with, with any film project I’ve ever worked on."
