The lockdown order placed on the members of the Theater and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria (TAMPAN) from going to ‘Locations’ to shoot films as a result of the lingering dreaded CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19) pandemic has been relaxed.
“Dear distinguished members of our great association TAMPAN; I salute your endurance of the sufferance you have encountered with the unfortunate pandemic of Coronavirus popularly known as COVID 19. Even in the heat of provocations of the suffering naturally caused by this hazardous global crisis, you stand firm with us and abide by the proclamations of the association to stop shooting of films and other related productions.”
In order to mitigate the effect that the pandemic has on our filmmaking ventures and personal lives, I hereby RELAX THE LOCKDOWN ON LOCATION ORDER I earlier issued; and this decision is based on the declaration of our State Governments’ RELAXATION ORDER taking effect from June 1st 2020.
However, it is essential for us to know that the Pandemic has not been defeated; COVID 19 is still REAL which is the reason we should have to take the necessary precautionary measures that will protect us from the VIRUS in the course of our works.
RECOMMENDED GUIDELINES TO OBSERVE DURING FILM PRODUCTIONS.
1. Producers must provide Soap and Running Water for constant washing of hands by both the Cast and the Crewmembers.
