Covid-19 Risk Assessment & Useful Camera Analogy

We spoke with Dr. David Davenport, a specialist in infectious disease and clinical associate professor at the Western Michigan University School of Medicine on Aug 11, 2020 about coronavirus and the impact on our industry.  Back in April we chatted with Dr. Davenport about the new work environment we were going to be facing in photo and video production.

Let’s be careful as a community and look out for groups that are trying to rush back to work without the proper safety protocols, and let’s arm ourselves with the best information available to be able to assess the risk of individual shoots, and display situational awareness on set to protect ourselves, and our colleagues.
