Adapting to Coronavirus

Our industry is constantly evolving and looking for innovative ways to work, but few would have foreseen that the next big change would be forced on us by such a dramatic external event.

As a quarter of the world’s population is now living under lockdown, with many borders closed and travel suspended, it is still too early to fully understand the effect of the crisis on the global creative screen industries. There is little doubt, however, that the impact will be massive.

The only thing that is certain at the moment is that we will get through this.

First and foremost, we hope our readers from all countries and all grades of the industry, and their loved ones, are safe and sound and managing to go about their daily lives as best they can during these extraordinary circumstances.

The Location Guide team is fully set up to work remotely and is more determined than ever to continue bringing you valuable information and insights in order to help you through this rapidly evolving situation.

We are opening up our platforms to discuss any industry topics as well as hosting a number of discussions on our social media outlets. We want to know how you, whether you are a freelancer or part of a larger company, are adapting to the situation.

We are as keen as ever to keep interacting with you as much as possible. In the meantime, stay safe.
