COVID-19 Resources for Film Production

On July 8 the Governor’s office posted the official safety on set protocols for all motion picture production in Washington State. The motion picture industry can resume safe operations in any county currently in Phase 2 or 3 of the Governor’s Safe Start Plan. You can read the mandatory safety protocols on the Governor’s website here.

And remember, check in with the local film office or permitting agency in any county where you plan to film as each jurisdiction may have additional safety requirements.

Please Note: These resources were curated from the recommendations of different government agencies, industry organizations, and recommendations from industry members. We ask that each production do its due diligence in researching before choosing what resources are the best fit for them.
