The film and television industry is attempting to restart amidst the ongoing global health crisis, and now, Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World: Dominion is looking to be the first major production in the UK to resume filming.
According to Deadline, Universal and Pinewood Studios are putting safety protocols in place for shooting to resume on Jurassic World: Dominion on July 6th.
“The plan is for us to be shooting early-mid July,” a senior Universal production executive confirmed.
The safety measures for production restart will include a private medical facility called Your Doctor, COVID training for all cast and crew, on-site doctors, nurses and isolation booths, 150 hand sanitizer stations, nightly anti-viral ‘fogs’, obligatory masks for everyone expect actors while performing, more than 1,800 safety signs, and ‘Green Zones’ for shooting cast and crew.
“Anyone with symptoms will be isolated immediately before being sent home,” a Universal production executive told Deadline. “We want to make sure that we are going above and beyond the national protocols to create a safe environment. Cost isn’t our main concern now: it’s safety. We will take direction from our medical team, but we’re confident that with the staggered scheduling and zones of talent and crew, along with a system of contact tracing, we can move forward with limited delay in production.”
