Hello, Dear Roger and James. 

Since the pandemic is going on for quite some time are you postponing to shoot deliberately until Covid is completely over or just happens that you haven't yet received a project that you like?

I love your podcast but hearing how you guys talk about shooting and the experience on set sounds like you are soo eager to be back at it. 

Would you like to elaborate?

 

Thanks

We are eager to get back but it will be next year before we begin another shoot. The pandemic has certainly narrowed the opportunities.

I really hope so everything resumes.
And wish you all the health and best of opportunity.
If anyone should resume shooting it is you guys.
One good thing out of Covid is your podcast. 🙂

And then there is the problem still of international travel - I am supposed to set up some location shots in Berlin, except the person scouting can't travel because the UK health service has spelled her name wrongly (missed an e) and so she can't get a vaccination certificate until the NHS has put the e back!  For three weeks this nonsense has been going on!  That's a whole year's work being held up by one incompetent official.

BTW The podcast was well underway before covid was an issue, though the pandemic allowed us to do more than we might have.

Oh, nice. Never suspected that.
Always thought it was kinda dealing-with-Covid project.
It is amazing gift for us all.

We started the podcast as an extension of the forum and only imagined it to be conversations with friends. The first person we talked with was Franz Kraus, of ARRI and we recorded two episodes with him in LA in person.

The vaccination certificate arrived today and with the name spelled correctly.  Only this time the date of birth was wrong.  Square one, as they say!
