SLV open as usual - COVID-19 update - October 2020

We are open for business but have altered the way we work to maintain a safe working environment. As a small but resilient company and we are always happy to tailor our services to your specific requirements.

Here is an update about the procedures and facilities we have put in place.

Studios

Studio 2 is now available for full 10-hour day hire only and comes with the the extra room above it as standard to accommodate extra crew numbers. Contact us for more details.

Our studios have fresh air ventilation systems which provide a constant supply of fresh air as opposed to a recirculation system. They are also quiet enough to run whilst recording sound

We have just installed a dual internet system that runs on fast 5G in addition to fibre broadband so that we can offer a very robust internet connection for live video streaming etc.

We can provide a reliable online video stream from the studios so that your client can monitor the shoot remotely

There is remote audio and video monitoring provided from the studio to the client room and both dressing rooms for Studio 1 and to the client room for Studio 2. Studio 1 also have a microphone set up in the green room so that you can communicate remotely via the PA

We have opened a roof garden in addition to the private yard so we can offer clients more outdoor ancillary space

Safe equipment handling

All equipment supplied by SLV is made safe using a combination of quarantining, disinfection, UV-C light and ozone sanitising

Our staff members wear appropriate PPE whilst handling equipment

Workstations are being sanitised before and after use

Our vans are sanitised before and after use

Studio sanitation

Hand santiser is provided on main entry to the premises and around the building

We ask that crew and clients arrive with their own PPE, however we have it available to purchase if required

Everyone, including SLV staff, entering the premises will have their temperature measured and we reserve the right to refuse entry of anyone displaying symptoms of Covid -19

Client facing staff wears PPE

The Studio 1 showers are still available to use however we ask that people bring their own towels

Studio 1 and studio 2 are to use separate toilets and kitchen facilities provided if both are in use on the same day

We are currently limiting the maximum number of people inside each studio space to 10 people for Studio 1 and 3 people for Studio 2. We also have displayed a limit for the number of people in each specific area

We ask that gaffers and sparks wear gloves and masks when appropriate

The premises are being santised at the end of each working day

We strongly suggest all the productions and clients coming to our studios to read the latest APA COVID-19 Shooting guidelines. You can find the most up to date version by clicking link below:

APA COVID-19 Shooting Guidelines

We now have the NHS Covid-19 App venue QR code in place.

We know that things are very difficult in our industry right now, however we would like to reassure our clients that we are here to help get the industry back on its feet.

Take care and hope to see you soon,

SLV Team
