Sandstorm Films: living at the workplace during lockdown
28 April 2020
Friends to the GTC, Sandstorm Films near Swindon, have found innovative ways to keep the studio ticking over while strictly observing all the social distancing rules and a very strict COVID-19 protocol during the lockdown.
A few of the team have been living at the studio to avoid the need for any travel, the onsite chef applies rigorous daily cleaning and the team have managed some carefully coordinated COVID-limited productions involving pieces to camera and automated cameras.
The Guild of Television Camera Professionals is an independent craft organisation supporting and encouraging excellence in all aspects of TV, digital and film camerawork. Members are predominantly cameramen and camerawomen working professionally across all moving image disciplines.
The International Association of Wildlife Film-makers, whose members are professional camera crew earning most of their income from making wildlife films, has been affiliated to the GTC since January 2016.
