The film’s script supervisor Sarah Ziolkowski revealed in an Instagram post that she was in isolation for five months and had only left the house to get groceries before filming started. She said, “After 5 months, it feels good to be around your tribe again. Even though I’m pretty good by myself and enjoyed the time off, I can’t deny I missed these days once #productions had started rolling again.” Hence, it looks as though the cast and crew of the film have made sure to take all the safety precautions against the spread of COVID-19.


I spent 5 months in #selfisolation due to #Covid19 and only left the house to get groceries or to explore #BC by myself. The first person I spoke to was my dentist after over 4 months, and even then I was unsure if this was the right time to go. 🀷🏻‍♀️ The #filmindustry returned after 3 months, but as a solo #expat, whose entire family lives abroad, it can be pretty scary sometimes. My #isolated position had gotten me into trouble in the past; trouble I could have avoided had I only honored the red flags. Lesson learned. πŸ’πŸ»‍♀️ A #virus is different though. You don’t see it coming. Without that support system nearby, I waited another month to see if we can be safe at work, and so far, #Vancouver is doing pretty well. πŸ€ After 5 months, it feels good to be around your tribe again. Even though I’m pretty good by myself and enjoyed the time off, I can’t deny I missed these days once #productions had started rolling again. πŸŽ₯ Here are a few photos of what is happening to keep us all safe: We wear masks all day. Color codes keep us separate #onset. It’s not always possible depending on our location, but we keep a distance as much as we can; we treat each other respectfully and with more understanding. Our breakfast and lunch is pre-ordered for the entire week. It‘s put in boxes for each department. I share a box with the director for instance, so it‘s not exposed to other people. Utensils are wrapped; the food comes in containers. Craft service is limited to drinks only and snacks are put in baskets for each department, but I bring my own snacks and drinks, just to be safer. I also bring my own little Covid-safety kit. We sanitize our hands and equipment regularly during the day, and a special Covid-staff keeps an eye on us. πŸ’¦ The recent surge in BC is scary because young people want to party and don’t take our situation seriously enough during the summer. The film industry has remained unaffected by it so far. Let’s keep it this way. We love our jobs and want to entertain you. ❀️🎬 — #VanScripty #BCFilm #scriptsupervisor #filmindustry #yvrshoots #britishcolumbia #crewlife #hollywoodnorth #film #coronavirus #corona #staysafe #wearamask #setlife #behindthescenes
