After the Coronavirus, the Race to Resume Film Production Goes Global
Ever since the coronavirus crisis put entertainment production in a deep freeze, Hollywood has been eager to get the cameras rolling again.
After all, box office revenue has sunk to virtually zero and more than 100,000 entertainment industry workers have lost their jobs.
With stay-at-home orders in place and domestic production at a standstill, filmmakers are starting to see a thaw abroad.
In recent weeks, several countries have raised their flags, vying for production. They tout their incentives, facilities and locations but also their low COVID-19 numbers, testing capabilities and measures to keep productions safe and minimize outbreaks.
