Production Protocol: COVID-19 (UPDATED 06/01/2022)

While daily new Covid cases are rising with new Omicron Variants, we at Rocket House Pictures have honed our strategies to keep infections in check in our work spaces. By continuing to be creative, flexible, and adaptive in our approach, we strive to keep our sets safe for our crew, talent and clients. Our team is 100% vaccinated + boosters and we are still following Covid-19 guidelines, including daily rapid tests while we are on set. We love to tell stories… and we like to do it safely.


• On indoorr productions, all crew members, client and talent are required to get a Rapid COVID test within 01 hour of production. 

• If shooting outdoors some rules may be relaxed.

• Schedule time entirely devoted to setup and strike to allow for proper sanitization.

• Anybody at increased risk of severe illness following infection (i.e. individuals belonging to a “high-risk group”) should not be cast or brought onto the crew for any production until health authorities indicate the risk of infection is negligible. 



• All crew members, talent and client will be required to wear a mask/applicable PPE while not on camera if not tested when arriving on set. Rapid tests will be provided upon arrival. Masks are not necessary if you tested negative.

• Each morning, producers will host a daily briefing with a section dedicated to walking through any important safety and COVID 19 procedures for that day specifically.

• Each morning at the daily briefing, producers will take each team member’s temperature. Producers will be required to keep a screening log with everyone’s temperatures for each production.

• Sanitizers must have 70% or higher concentration of alcohol.

Gear/Camera Department:

• Each person must individually sanitize their gear after use.

• When using a lavalier/lapel mic, sound tech should use an additional layer (face shield) to install device on untestest talent.


• HMU will provide a face shield as to not interfere with their job (hair and makeup).

• When possible, hair and makeup will be done by talent themselves as needed with guidance from a professional.

• In the event that physical contact is required for a scene, participating talent is required to sanitize hands before and after.


• All crew members and talent must wash their hands before entering the craft area.

• Producers will arrange for no-touch trash disposal.
