This site aims to be a guide of ideas, production and filming formats, which can be carried out and will be of great help during this period of social distancing in the framework of the pandemic and COVID-19.
A review of skills, tools and alternatives to content, alongside remote direction of live action and its abilities.
In turn, we will use this guide to publish and update filming protocols approved or in the process of official approval.
Communication pieces narrated through the selection and combination of audiovisual material belonging to an image bank, together with its own material, filmed previously by the production house. It is an easier and faster process than the previous one, where the key is in the edit and selection of material through a team of researchers.
The Edit Room is a virtual network of editors that allows agencies and our directors to edit and stay connected to operate with the speed necessary for this type of project.
Videos and audiovisual material generated by users from a creative and production strategy. To achieve the maximum quality of this format, the key lies in amplifying through a digital strategy that allows the collection of as much material as possible. This material is received, selected and curated by the producer and the director in charge of the project so that, after post-production of the image and sound is finished, it becomes a complete piece of content.
Remote management has been transformed into an interesting format that allows for greater “visual” quality and control over what has been done with the remote participation of both the production team and the Agency and Client. The director and/or directors will be in charge of the project together with a remote team composed of photographer, art director and stylist, in addition to the support of an online casting agency. The scenes are generated through self-shooting actors in their own houses who, with a small pack / kit with cameras and lights, sent by the producer to their homes, will carry out the filming supervised by the director, agency and client in a remote manner. This production proposal will evolve and adapt to the possibilities of being able to shoot again in person in studio or locations with a new protocol. Another alternative is to enhance filming in combination of different locations: by co-directing between a local director and another director remotely in those countries where filming is currently allowed, following said filming through video assist by streaming / monitoring.
In USA, we hope to have the possibility of filming on location in the next few weeks following the protocols agreed upon by cameras, unions and authorities.
Together with its directors, Final Frontier joined Landia's roster. Final Frontier is one of the most recognized companies worldwide, specialized in animation, character design, visual effects and mixed media, as well as experiential, virtual and augmented reality.
Together with Tip Top Films, we will be able to carry out filming and photography productions of products in-studio, led by directors specialized in the field.
CONTENT AND PRODUCTION DURING SOCIAL DISTANCING
Remote systems allow not only to supervise a shoot without being physically there, but also through implemented protocols and a unique organization system, to direct sets without being physically on set, whether through a director or a group of directors who together with a local AD and a crew can carry out the shoot. The same will apply for when filming is allowed locally, clients and agencies may choose to participate in the shoot according to the approved protocols or follow them remotely through any screen and communication system.
Remote shooting programs allow real-time streaming of one or more cameras from a film set. Through an App on any device you can follow what the cameras record live on set. This type of technology is going to be key for the implementation of Remote Management.
This system will be combined for better communication with some of today's video conference call platforms such as Zoom or Skype that will allow a connection between agency, client, director and the shoot.
In turn, a fast Internet system plus a Satellite Internet backup system will collaborate in obtaining the best possible image quality and streaming.
Covid-19, confronts us with a new scenario in our future of filming which will evolve, along with sanitation and health measures of each country. We will have new guidelines and requirements for the care of all participants and of each professional present in a set, this will allow us to carry out the different contents, stay creative and take care of everyone's sanitation and safety.
These new protocols will be the new rule as long as this reality continues. Through common sense, and certain safety and sanitation guidelines, filming may be carried out in which the fundamental thing will be to maintain the maximum care on set, having a maximum of authorized people on a set, and maintaining social distance between people on set.
Taking advantage of the versatility and provenance of our Directors, The Virtuals is a group made up of 2 or 3 different LANDIA directors who come together for specific projects to promote and carry out a specific script. The combination of these directors will depend on the profile and category of each project and their place of residence, as well as the set. This will allow us to carry out different challenges of filming in a remote format and through this combination, further elevate the craft of each of the ideas. This team can also be joined if necessary, by a network of cinematographers and producers with presence in our 6 offices that will contribute their studios or homes as locations to film, and further enhance the look and feel and production value of the idea.
