Health protocols, state rebate brighten Miami filming picture (miamitodaynews.com)
Miami-Dade County’s film industry has been one of the hardest hit during the pandemic, which forced production crews to carry adopted safety protocols into the new year, making the county one of the safest destinations to film, local top film and entertainment executives say.
As Covid-19 vaccinations start to take hold, the county’s filming industry is prepared to welcome back production crews from around the world and ensure the absolute best safety protocols and scenarios, said Bruce Orosz, CEO of ACT Productions and Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau chairman.
“This destination has not changed, it’s probably even better. We have created these special circumstances of quarantined bubble-like productions with about 100 hotels throughout Miami-Dade,” Mr. Orosz said. “Production crews are now using safety monitors that can help facilitate production and maintain the right protocols on the set, that give the producers and the local community confidence that all will be managed properly.”
