Filmmaking in Covid times at Inside Job Productions

Filmmaking in covid times at inside job productions

The second lockdown has come and gone, Christmas is around the corner and while we are all still working from home, things have not slowed down at IJP! In fact, we are lucky to have several projects in production. Many of these are animations or films that we are making through zoom, but there’s also a handful of socially distanced, in person, covid-protocoled shoots going ahead. We love to be busy, and we are grateful to all our fantastic clients for keeping us that way! Because even if the world is at a standstill in some ways, it doesn’t mean we should stop creating and communicating. As most of us are working from home, it could bee more important than ever for us to communicate through film and digital media. With limited daily social interaction, film could really bring a little extra to the way we communicate with each other.

We are naturally very excited by the news of the vaccine being approved and distributed, and we hope that it hopefully won’t be too long until we can resume to a less restricted everyday life. However, we will most likely carry on predominantly producing films that don’t require in person contact for the next couple of months. We have produced promotional films, films for internal communication, films specifically made for social media, explainer videos and webinars all remotely. Whatever story you need to tell, and whoever you want to tell it to, we can help.

Working with us is to support young and DISADVANTAGED people

Choosing to work with us is also directly funding the social enterprise side of our business. We are almost ready to kick off workshops with our new Mental Health Media Production Unit. In this project we will work with people that have experience of the criminal justice system. This project aims to give inmates a chance to learn filmmaking skills and tell their stories. We also plan to resurrect our production trainee scheme for young people with mental health issues once we are not as restricted by Covid.

Here’s a look at our animation showreel for a taste of what we could create for you over the next few month.
