Kia ora koutou,
As of midnight Wednesday, 25 March, the New Zealand Government has announced the country is now at COVID-19 Alert Level 4. Level 4 means people are instructed to stay at home and only essential services/business will remain open. This is expected to continue for a minimum of 4 weeks.
In response to the New Zealand Government’s COVID-19 alert level directive and advisory, all productions (as non-essential businesses) are now in hiatus. This means there will be no traditional shooting during this period and all production companies are in hiatus.
We can only hope that New Zealand taking early measures will help us be back up and running as soon as possible. We will of course only do this if the Government regulations allow, but we are now fully geared up to operate very safely, with great remote viewing and attendance options.
The NZAPG will continue to meet remotely and will keep circulating any relevant information over this period. It is anticipated that we will liaise further with Government agencies to lift the Hiatus on shoots at the appropriate time.
It’s vital to acknowledge that Production Companies are still open for business. Bidding, treating and project planning can all continue with agencies and clients and we want all our clients to be aware of this.
Please do get in touch with us with any questions, or with your local friendly production company for anything we can do in the meantime – answering questions, creative development, or high-quality cat videos!
