So how do we continue to make entertainment on a grand scale when we are dealing with a worldwide respiratory pandemic?
That’s been a lingering question that has hit Hollywood as the studios behind major TV and film productions work with unions in California on how to move forward, but some big blockbuster has returned to production overseas. ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ resumed production in England under some very advanced protocols that have completely reorganized everyone from the cast and the crew working on the big-budget movie for Universal. Just to start, the cast is tested three times a week with a doctor on-set full time with three nurses doing temperature checks. The crew that does not interact with the cast wears protective equipment.
“If production of this magnitude can successfully manage through the uncertainties of filming amid a pandemic, and keep people working and the production pipeline moving, there is a light at the end of the tunnel for film shoots of all sizes to create safe and sustainable environments,” said Donna Langley, the head of Universal’s Filmed Entertainment division.
This is not the only movie to get back to it, as several other films are in the works overseas like the Avatar sequels, the ‘Uncharted’ adaption, and Marvel’s Shang-Chi.
Collider spoke with Jurassic World creative mind Colin Trevorrow on how the new film will feature a mixture of CGI effects with animatronics.
