Our adaptive response to COVID-19

At Adrift our client, crew, and talent safety are very important to us. Below are the strict measures that all ADRIFT crew, talent, and clients will follow going forwards for all location/onset filming/photography. 



  • A full risk assessment will be carried out with the client to ensure that the shoot can take place safely. 

  • All pre-production meetings will take place by video call.


  • All filming locations including client offices, studios, and external spaces must be large enough for crew, talent, and clients to obtain a 2m distance from each other throughout set-up, filming, and de-rigging.

  • If a location already has social distancing measures in place, all crew, talent, and clients will follow guidelines.  

  • Where possible open areas such as atriums or open-plan offices should be utilised, or the shoot should take place outdoors if at all possible.

Cast and Crew

  • No-one who is considered vulnerable or at-risk should be included in video production.

  • Anyone whose household includes someone who is vulnerable or at-risk should also undertake their own risk assessment before agreeing to take part.


  • Only the ADRIFT crew will have contact with video production equipment. 

  • All equipment will be cleaned before and after filming.


  • All crew and talent will undertake hand washing upon arrival at the location and continue this routinely throughout the shoot.

  • The crew will also carry hand sanitiser in case handwashing facilities are not available.

  • Any surfaces that the crew has touched will be thoroughly cleaned before leaving the premises.


  • If any crew members, talent, or client representatives are showing any of the following symptoms ahead of the shoot, they will need to self isolate for 14 days and the shoot will be postponed:

    • High temperature

    • New persistent cough 

    • Flu-like symptoms
