The threequel to Colin Trevorrow’s series and the continuation of Speilberg’s epic “Jurassic Park” will be the first movie to resume production status during the Covid-19 pandemic. “Jurassic World: Dominion” has been among those big-budget studio films which had their productions halted due to the pandemic and had incurred millions in losses. Pinewood Studios in the United kingdoms will now open for the shoot of the movie sometime in mid-July making it the first movie to resume production during the pandemic.
“The plan is for us to be shooting early-mid July,” a senior Universal production executive confirmed.
Deadline reported that the production is setting up its camera and equipment and the shoot will start sometime in mid-July with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard reprising their roles. Universal said that they are thoroughly equipped with the safety requirements and will be taking the utmost precautions.
“Anyone with symptoms will be isolated immediately before being sent home, We want to make sure we are going above and beyond the national protocols to create a safe environment. Cost isn’t our main concern now: it’s safety.” a production executive commented.

The official Universal’s protocol submitted in regards to the safety measures states that:
“The commission of a private medical facility called Your Doctor to manage the entire production’s medical requirements. This will include Covid-19, fever and antibody testing but they will also review all hand sanitizer, social distancing measures, updates to government and best practice guidelines. Your Doctor will continually update the production’s safety measures as the science and environment changes and will be available for cast consultations to review health and safety concerns.
The studio has commissioned Your Doctor to test all crew before they start on the production. They will then test the crew at times throughout the production. The whole crew will also be antibody tested. Thousands of tests are expected to be carried out over the shooting period.
All crew will be temperature tested every day and not allowed on site until complete. Two walk-through temperature testing stations are being built at each end of Pinewood Studios with a capacity of 1,000 crew over 2 hours. Each test station will have a complement of doctors, nurses and isolation booths. The crew will be verified that they have been tested by a bespoke RFID system that registers when a crew member has been temperature tested. The crew will also be given a paper wristband for identification by security as a fallback. Additional temperature test stations will be set up on location as required.
The studio is putting up around 1,800 signs across Pinewood and more on location. These will include reminders that crew numbers will be limited in various locations, the need for social distancing (six feet of separation) and one-way systems in operation.
The studio is rolling out a full COVID training program to be undertaken by all staff before starting. Universal will also do specific training for specialist groups (e.g. costume and makeup).
The studio is manufacturing 150 hand sanitizer stations to be positioned at points around Pinewood Studios. They are also putting in an extra 60 sinks. All crew members will also be given an individual hand sanitizer bottle when they start.
Production will double the cleaning recommendations and employ a large cleaning team who will continually clean all the touchpoints across the site in addition to all common areas, toilets, welfare and kitchens. They will clean with specialized antiviral sprays appropriate to the situation. In the evenings all toilets, communal areas, welfare areas, kitchens, trucks and sets will be antiviral fogged. Props, grip, SFX and camera will use specialized antistatic cleaning systems.
The studio is setting up a ‘Greenzone’ for the shooting cast and crew which will have an enhanced testing environment. The ‘Greenzone’ will be policed to stop any untested crew from coming in as a further measure to prevent any spread of COVID.
Universal will have additional security detail maintaining the temperature testing centres and a further team who will check crew are eligible to go into the protected green zones. The security team will be trained in COVID measures to ensure that the required operations are followed. ”
Overall, Universal is spending almost 5 million dollars on safety precautions and care of their unit.
