Film Opening - Blog #14 - Coronavirus

  Amid the rising pandemic of COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus, Broward County and Miami-Dade schools have officially closed their doors as of March 13th, 2020. The disruption in the workflow for many students and teachers is a price worth paying with the increasing unpredictability for this newfound disease. Their priority has been to isolate the issue and make sure their students aren't exposed, to the best of their ability, to the virus. Although the mortality rate in teenagers and adults of health aren't severe, its spread is so sporadic and prompt that it is a legitimate threat to others who don't have a prolific immune system to defend against it. Here is Miami-Dade superintendent Alberto Carvalho addressing the issue today at 4:10pm.

    Currently our team is at a loss for words in how to address the future of our project. Our plan to produce the film during the last week of March may or may not be feasible now. Our project may be suspended from production and the film will be cancelled. For now we are giving the situation the benefit of the doubt and holding onto our work, making sure we will continue finalizing the concept work and have something potentially ready to use once the opportunity to use it comes. It is on our best interest to achieve something amazing from what we've birthed so far, and we want every opportunity to execute our plans in a creative and fun way. As of now, we wait for the higher-ups to call the shots. That is perfectly fine with me; I'm fighting my own cold right now either way, so there is no rush.
