CHOP & HUE COVID-19 BEST PRACTICES

Chop & Hue has always been a leader in finding new ways to combine breathtaking visuals with heartfelt brand stories. We are inspired by the post quarantine world and embrace it as an opportunity to develop new and unique creativity that allows us to maintain best practices during this pandemic. Although elements of the production will feel different as we adjust to the new normal, rest assured, our focus and unmatched attention to detail will always be present. Now is the time for creativity to evolve, and we’re here to help with the evolution.

It’s an exciting time to collaborate. Let us help you rework the narrative based on our experience. Simple solutions like being involved earlier in pre-production are one step that can help our joint-teams problem solve and establish a creative plan without sacrificing the core of your brands concept. With our roots firmly established in post-production, we also encourage exploration in the world of animation and motion design to execute and enhance content.

• Remote access to live-feed client monitors will be made available.

TRAVEL

• We understand that travel is an essential aspect of many of our productions. The safety of our crew and personnel is our top priority. By using smaller teams, remote capabilities, and Collective members in multiple regions, we will be able to adhere to proper guidelines and continue with a safe and efficient production.
• On a per-job basis, local location scouts will share images to a shared portal. E-scouting will occur when possible, allowing individual location owners to share pictures and videos of their sites remotely.

We’re in this together. We look forward to working with you.
