Production has been ramping back up amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and we're making sure that safety comes first in the sound department. This means ample stock of safety and sanitization supplies, and a plan for clean equipment and safe interaction.
Sono Locus is stocked with plenty of protective masks, face shields, and nitrile gloves, along with hand sanitizer that lives both on the sound cart and in the sound bag.
Keeping gear clean is of utmost importance. This includes full wipe-downs of lavaliere mics and wireless transmitters for talent, and Comtek receivers for producer and client monitoring. We ask that producers and clients bring their own headphones or ear buds for Comteks, but we do have some available that will be cleaned before and after use.
We use clean bags to store talent wireless kits between sanitization and use. Each talent on set has a clean bag that contains lav, transmitter, straps, and spare batteries. Nothing goes back into the bag that hasn't been cleaned, so that each kit is ready to roll safely the next day.
