In the ongoing absence of an industry-wide agreement with either the AMPTP covering filmed entertainment, or the AICP for commercial production, the Art Directors Guild (ADG) has released their set of key recommendations and protocols for adoption in the workplace (attached).
These recommendations are intended to address the day to day experience of ADG members and are supplemental to the Industry-Wide White Paper, and the Safe Way Forward with respect to testing and department-specific protocols related to employees represented by DGA, SAG-AFTRA, IATSE, Teamsters and the Basic Crafts.
The Art Directors Guild, IATSE Local 800, takes the health and safety of its members across the country very seriously. In this time of ongoing pandemic, the ADG is focused on ensuring its members are in work environments that are crafted to provide the maximum level of protection and disease prevention possible. The protocols are a living document which will be periodically updated based on the real-life workplace experience as members begin to return to work.
Executive Director Chuck Parker noted “While no document will ever address every issue or situation our members encounter, we believe these recommendations will provide an additional layer of protection and safety as they specifically address the unique world of the art departments in filmed entertainment and commercial production.”
