We’ve been talking a lot about when live concerts will come back in countries still locked down due to Covid-19. But what about other aspects of the music industry? Music and music video production, for example, which have their own challenges to solve around social distancing and safety.
In the UK, some new guidance has just been published on how to safely restart production, developed as part of a working group for the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
You can read the initial document here – it’ll be revised to stay current as official government advice changes – with its advice on everything from managing risk and who should go to work, to measures for singing and playing wind/brass instruments, sanitation, and safely lugging equipment in and out of studios.
Industry bodies AIM, BPI, MPG and the Musicians’ Union have come together to publish the guidelines, and they could make useful reading for studios around the world.
