Post Covid 19 Safety Procedures

The world was forced to change. But in our small world we kept our high standards of demand, professionalism and – above all – talent.

We are lucky to live in a country that has shown to have one of the most effective health services where the contagion rate was always less than 2%. In spite of trusting and following the Portuguese Film Commission Shooting Rules, we have however developed the Covid Free Shooting Set Service.

This service aims at testing all team members 48 hrs prior to start shooting. The world has changed but our passion for our work is still the same.
