A Gnu Films COVID Update asking the important questions, such as:
With businesses reopening; customer, staff and stakeholder confidence is paramount for us all.
So, we’ve put a post together to highlight exactly how we’re ensuring you get the same stellar customer service, friendly smiles, and high-end videos that you expect from us. We probably won’t be able to bring you doughnuts for a bit though – soz. So, to answer a few questions first off…
Yes! We can! We can offer studio filming, locations filming and remote edits using your very own footage even if it’s been shot on your phone. We have two fully operational edit-suites available for post-production including grading and sound mixing. The process is very similar to normal productions, but we may advise to keep filming as simplified as possible to facilitate social distancing.
We have taken our primary working practice guidelines for filming from PACT. This guidance has been produced in conjunction with BBC, ITV and Sky. The full guidelines may be downloaded here, but below we’ve highlighted some of the key factors for staying safe during filming.
Our post-production and animation services are affected in a much smaller sense. All our staff are still working from home and will continue to do so for the immediate future. All equipment, project sharing apps and secure cloud storage systems were in place before the lockdown occurred. These guidelines will be continually reviewed to ensure we are practising optimal safety precautions at all times.
With the continual onslaught of ‘Zoom-fatigue’ but the undeniable necessity to collaborate face to face, a bright spark at Cronkshawfold Farm decided to offer a surprise guest during your zoom meeting in the form of a goat. Each booking costs £5 and the money goes directly to funding renewable technologies at the farm to help battle the climate crisis. If you’ve got a project to discuss and want to make sure you’re heard by a goat too, then just let us know when we arrange it. You can even choose your guest, from the sassy Simone to the talented Terrance – click here (https://www.cronkshawfoldfarm.co.uk/goatsonzoom-1) to choose your goat!!
