The production office has the technology to be truly remote. Plan ahead to take your production office remote and manage your workflows, approvals, and reporting digitally. Learn how with this guide.
As productions return to work, they are faced with the realities of what it will take to create the safest possible work environments.
While some locations have specific restrictions, including quarantine requirements, there are some universal precautions that will apply to any production no matter where you shoot - such as limiting contact, increasing off-set work, and implementing staggered work shifts, the zone system, and/or small working groups.
Official government committees, such as The Film and Television Health and Safety Advisory Committee of the Ontario Ministry of Labour, recommend “making use of available technology to allow individuals to work remotely” and “limiting the requirement for workers to physically attend at the production office for petty cash, P-Card increases, to pick up cheques, etc."
This guide will help you to plan ahead to take your production office remote and manage your workflows, approvals, and reporting with GreenSlate and other technologies. Not only will you help keep your team safe, but you will also keep your employee data secure and save money through greater efficiencies in your processes. Remote digital solutions eliminate travel, office space, supplies, rentals, and storing boxes of files; it adds up.
