Rating on Control Room Index (comparative cost data for production in South Africa)

Number of people allowed on set – 50
Travel restrictions – in place for all incoming flights

With a country that went into lockdown before the UK, they opened back up for business but with limitations. South Africa has a tiered system which was opening up level by level…from level 5 to level 4…. expected level 3 early June. At Level 4, they were allowed to shoot with health protocols in place as their production companies lobbied the government to allow for them to become a “permitted business” to resume. Compliance officers, screening processes, remote work and avoiding face-to-face all had to be adhered to, within their curfew times that caused logistical issues with staff to return home. As SA is going into winter, the government are more cautious than the northern hemisphere.
