National Set Medics has created their own guidance for the foreseeable future of film sets during the COVID-19 era.

In the meantime, we've volunteered our producing skills and continuously tracked global DIY production numbers of PPE for Open Source COVID19 Medical Supplies and are celebrating the crossing of the 7 million mark.

Looking to reach an audience during COVID-19 with original content? Early in the pandemic we saw this becoming an issue, so we built something for you.

During COVID-19, it is difficult for marketers to rise above the noise. Most video production is restricted. Here is our solution for your marketing needs.

For our fellow producers and social impact entertainment professionals: here's the currently best /most proactive insight on behavior change communications with COVID-19.
Thanks to the SBCC Summit for pointing us this way, and of course to OpenIDEO for putting this all together and publishing it as part of a very well organized webinar.

91-DIVOC : Flip the script on COVID-19

What does the data mean? Is there a graph that I can understand?

Here it is. We filter through a LOT of information regarding COVID-19, and this is so far the best chart we've found.

You can track the growth rate of countries as well as US states specifically, normalized and absolute, linear and logarithmic, deaths and confirmed cases.

http://www.91-divoc.com/pages/covid-visualization/

Go take a look at what your local growth rates are so you can educate yourself on your current local situation and trend.

(Note: tracking deaths per million is more indicative of the problem; case growth is often tied to testing growth, and therefore hard to make comparative across time and space)

Coronavirus outbreak: US task force holds news briefing – watch live

The United States is entering the next stage in COVID-19 Containment and Mitigation.

The new federal guidelines were announced by Trump today:
- avoid groups of more than 10 people
- avoid eating at restaurants, food courts or bars
- avoid discretionary travel
- rally together as one nation to get ahead of the curve

Watch the original press conference below, with Trump addressing the crisis in a new tone.

Coronavirus latest: lockdown declared across New York, New Jersey and Connecticut – live

After extensively studying the COVID-19 outbreak, and sifting through information for weeks, we'll try to keep you in the loop on developments. We work in Social Impact Entertainment, so understanding how the world works is an essential part of that.

The East Coast of the United States is now officially on Lockdown, as declared an hour ago. New York, Connecticut and New Jersey. We commend the politicians at work there for their swifter-than-federal action.

And it looks like there's light at the end of the tunnel, as long as really strict lockdown measures are enforced, country-wide, for an extended period of time. About 1.5 months if we follow the China model.

Wikipedia has beautiful stat graphics on the spread/recoveries now, check them out below.
.
.
First China Case: Dec 1
First China Death: Jan 11
First China Lockdown: January 23
Easing of Lockdown: March 13
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019%E2%80%9320_coronavirus_pandemic_in_mainland_China

First US Case: Jan 21
First US Death: Feb 29
First US Lockdown: March 16
Easing of US lockdown: TBD - if we match China in discipline and growth curbing, by approx. May 6 (1.5 months)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_coronavirus_pandemic_in_the_United_States
.
.
We can't compare the U.S. and China directly since the countries are so vastly different in population size, politics, industry etc. - but it gives all of us a bit of an expectation that we can measure reality against.

If we can be as disciplined as a country that has gone through SARS, MERS and other pandemics recently (which we haven't, so our ability to adapt is more important than ever), then the "endgame" could be like China's:

Slow the spread and return from mitigation back to containment, with new cases dwindling towards zero within months of outbreak.
.
.
Hence, we recommend to support our government in imitating China's measures and complying with lockdown measures as much as it's humanly possible. Europe is doing the same across the board, with the UK being a global exception at this point.

There's no stopping the spread, but we can all do our part to #flattenthecurve and protect those that are in danger.

As a last minute reminder to our fellow impact producers, producers, directors and writers: _Tomorrow_ is the deadline to sign up for the SBCC Summit in Morocco.

Here's a private invite to our "Hollywood Delegation" - message our co-founder Tobias Deml you want to join us (and bring enough industry experience to the table). It's a sizeable investment in your impact education (Flight from the US + $725 for the summit), but we've been to a lot of these impact events and the SBCC Summit is by far the deepest pocket of impact knowledge on the globe. Supported by us, Prodigium Pictures, Cinema Of Change and the PGA Social Impact Entertainment Task Force.

Good news filmmakers! After an interesting outcry of leading filmmakers over the past three years about Smart TVs destroying cinematic images with arbitrary "improvements" such as brightening and noise treatments, the UHD Alliance announced the Filmmaker mode in August.

Anne Hathaway's Taking on Film-Industry Pollution with Zero Waste Founder Lauren Singer

Anne Hathaway "I see these opportunities where I'm just like, okay, you get everyone a zero-waste kit at the beginning of a film. And we hire environmental PA's or something to maintain the kits and use reusable coffee cups for all of us, for example, when they go on runs. Now I say if you can remember your keys and phone in the morning, you can remember a reusable coffee cup and water bottle."

“While working on The Hustle, I noticed disposable coffee cups, plastic water bottles, idling trucks, and food waste. When I finished the film, my family and I went zero waste," the actress says.

Thanks @nofilmschool for allowing us to publish our automated G-Casper call sheet creation software! Our co-founder and partner @tobiasdeml had the great idea of streamlining production management architecture after a crazy film set experience — we’ve all had those days. By importing the elements from the original Casper excel sheet into google sheets, which many filmmakers use in this modern, fast paced era, and innovating our own algorithms and commands to make drop down menus, automated weather, live syncing crew and cast sheets, automated location and parking breakdowns, we’ve created a powerful tool to make the lives of ADs, line producers, UPMs and POCs much easier. The film industry is an innovative one by definition; why not innovate the foundations behind it? Take a look today, by reaching out to us at prodigium-pictures.com and download G-Casper for free today! #film #automation #callsheets #engineering #googlesheets #google #assistantdirecting #producer #filmproducer #directing #producerlife #setlife #screenwriting #movies #filmset

Our Story

Prodigium Pictures produces digital media content that makes a measurable social impact through entertainment. We work on short and long form content - from videos for businesses we believe in to impact-focused feature films.

Our team works hard at producing content that helps audiences make better decisions in their lives and think critically about the world around them through our entertainment.

Social Impact is ever more relevant to the success of businesses today. Companies have to address solutions for social and ethical problems, in order to successfully grow themselves. It has been proven that both customers and employees engage with profitable, purposeful businesses much more than profit-only companies. Prodigium Pictures make videos about social impact a company has in addition to all traditional advertising necessary to market the businesses.

To learn more about Social Impact and Business, you can read our insights here.

We offer initial consultations for new clients, free of charge. We’d be more than happy to meet in person. If you aren’t based in LA or NYC, feel free to give us a call or contact us here on Facebook!

On the movie side, we’re currently in the process of selling our debut feature film “Strive” starring Danny Glover, a social impact film about the struggle for higher education that takes place in Harlem.

We’re always open to new Co-Production proposals on films and TV shows.
