Shooting safely on-set. Being good Neighbours


Much to the delight of kids across the world, the first high profile TV show back in production is Australia’s Neighbours. The studios and location are up and running again since the crew turned off their cameras in March.

In order to get back on set, according to a report on ABC News, new protocols are being adopted including:

  • Studio space has been divided into self-contained production quadrants
  • Three separate production teams isolated from each other
  • Adhering to the 1.5m social distancing rule
  • Nurse on set, and everyone entering the site temperatures checked
  • Male actors to have no make-up; female actors will not be touched up
  • No physical contact between actors
  • Crew members already on set to double as extras
  • Clever camera angles to make actors look closer together

Behind the Lens

How can crews keep safe behind the lens? There are technical solutions available today:

Problem Solution
The focus puller cannot physically touch the lens or stand close to the camera operator. Teradek RT: Wireless follow focus with wireless video, distancing the camera operator and the focus puller
The director, DOP, camera operator and focus puller need to maintain a distance, but retain the ability to monitor the camera feed at full quality and with no discernible delay. Teradek Bolt 4K: zero latency secure wireless transmission, creating a distance between primary crew members
Continuity, make-up, costume and other crew members need to monitor the camera feed on-set but at a distance. Teradek Serv Pro: On-set encoded wireless network enabling other crew members to monitor shots on iPads
Executive producers, writers, designers, researchers etc. need to monitor the production remotely. Teradek Cube with CoreTV: secure encoded streaming over WiFi of the camera feed and wide set camera to producers, writers and executives off-set in remote locations
