Contingency Protocol in the Event of an MTH 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 DR unable to work, advance to Step 6.
  2. If the 2D, 2C, SS, KY, or BE is unable to work, the AE should step into the role. If that is not viable, or if it’s the PRPDDP, 1D1CGF, or SM who’s out, then…
  3. Check to see if there’s an MFA2 (such as one of the six students in pre-production) who’s able to fill in. If not, then…
  4. Check to see if there’s a BFA3 who’s able to fill in. If not, then…
  5. Check to see if having a smaller crew and consolidating positions will work. If that is not viable, then…
  6. Postpone the show, moving any remaining shooting days into the summer and rescheduling post-production as needed.
