SHOOTING GUIDELINES Taking into account our new reality and to be able to organize a safe set under COVID-19 circumstances Radioaktivefilm team is taking a series of anti-pandemic measures that should be followed on set if working on the project by all our crew members and Clients. Per job, we are working on minimizing crews, to only account of essential crew members.These rules apply to our traditional shoots, as well as remote productions. All these rules will be communicated to the crew together with their deal memo.
PRIOR TO SHOOT/ DURING PREPRODUCTION
All the job that doesn’t require physical presence should be done remotely.
Testing. Option 1. To check immunity system of company workers and hired crew we will use a rapid serological test to measure antibodies indicative of a past infection (Rapid Antibody test). The test is performed in capillary blood through a slight puncture in a finger. The result is known in 15 minutes. If the testing results are positive then the individual is immune and doesn’t require further tests. This test should be performed 3 days prior to shoot.
Testing. Option 2. An early detection of cases with active infection is possible by means of real time multiplex PCR test. It is an in vitro diagnostic product that allows detecting the presence of specific genes for the SARS- CoV-2 virus and is quite sensi- tive. It takes up to 24h hours to get the results. If the result is negative, individual can work normally keeping all necessary hygienic measures. If PCR test is positive then individual most likely has a virus and must isolate himself and repeat PCR test in 24H. If the second test is negative, individual should pass the third test in 24H. If the third test is negative, individual can work normally. If the second test is positive, individual is most likely has a virus, so he/she continue self isolation and all people that have been in close contact with him /her for the past couple of days are getting tested as well.
All testing is provided by production.
Radioaktive Film is a production service company based in Kyiv, Ukraine,which operates throughout Far Eastern Europe. Since our founding in 1998 by American partners, we have hosted a broad range of clients from around the world, shooting feature films, tv shows, tv commercials, documentaries, virals, and photos.
We’ve worked on every kind of project. We’re in this to serve our clients, not to win awards or facebook likes. So, if a client needs to film 2 people sitting in a room on a camera phone, that’s what we’ll do. On the other hand, we’ve got a thing for big scenes. Radioaktive has the resources and the experience to bring together a cast of thousands. We’ve shut down train stations, blocked off bridges, even built an entire building just to blow it up in the first shot.
We understand that epic filmmaking requires discipline, organization and forethought, and our years of collective experience have instilled in our team an instinctual attention to detail. We’ve also worked with a number of epic directors, so we know what it takes to keep up with talented genius.
Traveling to shoot your film shouldn’t mean accepting compromises or settling for less. Radioaktive’s mission is to help producers to maximize their budget value to afford their director and the agency new opportunities for creativity and execution. We focus on all the little details of line producing, so that you can get your work done. Shooting with us is just like shooting at home, but with better vodka.
We do things in-house. When we opened up for business in 1998, we were literally the first service company in Ukraine. So we had to build our own team, by hiring smart, hardworking people from various backgrounds and training them in the art and magic of producing. Things have changed since those early days, but after putting so much effort into teaching our employees, we do our best to keep them around. Each of our 6 producers has been with Radioaktive for at least 6 years. This organizational continuity means we’re a close team, working together with great efficiency to service your needs.
