When filming, especially in public places, the interference from bystanders can sometimes be awkward or dangerous for the crew and cast to deal with. This can then further lead to falling behind on schedule or not getting the desired shot at all. This is why the requirement to have security guards on set is a MUST. Our Security Officers are motivated by Professionalism, and Customer Service and have a large understanding of the entertainment industry.
Static Security is one thing that is often over looked until it’s too late. However having Security in place can often make sure the filming goes to schedule with as few hassles as possible, a few reasons you may consider having On-Set Security are: -
• Protect and prevent thousands of dollars worth of equipment being left un-supervised or damaged.
• Controlling Crowds
• Dispel Violent and Non-Violent interference from bystanders
• Prevent trespassing on private property
• Dealing with aggressive neighbours or public nuisance
• Safety of Cast and Crew
• Knowledge of legislation, to avoid potential fines or prosecution for Production Company.
Another reason you may choose to have Static Security on site, is if you have a 'Hot-Set'. Imagine you have spent hours and hours dressing the set, only to not be able to get the desired shot, or worse you already started filming and have had to stop, mid way through. Continutiy is a huge issue, and having something as simple as a few cushions out of place, hours later, or even the next day can change the dynamic's of the scene, but unfortunately you wont notice till it's too late in post-production. Our Static officers will sit on set, (even over night) and watch over it making sure nothing happens to it, saving you valuable time and money in the long run.
