Contingency Protocol in the Event of a D2 Crew Member Being Out

If a crew member is unable to report to work during principal photography, they must contact the show’s Producer and the Head of Production (Tony) as soon as possible, and no later than two hours before call time. 

The Producer and the Head of Production will then work through the following steps in sequence to determine the most appropriate solution:

  1. If the Director is unable to work, advance to Step 8.
  2. Check to see if having a smaller crew and consolidating positions will work. If that is not viable, then…
  3. Call on the “standby” crew member to step in as a day player. If that is not viable, then…
  4. Check to see if there is another MFA1 student who isn’t working that day and is interested in filling in. If that is not viable, then…
  5. Check to see if there is an MFA2 student who is interested in filling in. If that is not viable, then…
  6. Check to see if there is a BFA2 student who is interested in filling in. If that is not viable, then…
  7. Check to see if there is a BFA1 student who is able and interested in filling in. If that is not viable, then…
  8. Postpone or cancel the show, reworking the schedule as needed.
