2020 REFLECTIONS TO CELEBRATE THE NEW YEAR


COVID safety on set in The Palm Beaches

While 2020 may be synonymous with the pandemic that shook the world to its core, the entertainment production industry led the charge and set an example for safety, health and accountability measures while getting back to business. In the midst of new protocols and constant adjustments, some things never changed, including the Palm Beach County production community’s dedication to world-class service and the attention to detail that comes along with a skillset in production planning.

Production trends in 2020 shone an even brighter light on The Palm Beaches’ eco-tourism assets than ever before. From the Everglades to the Atlantic Ocean, wide open natural areas created a safe space for commercials and photoshoots, while marine life superstars like sea turtles, sharks and goliath groupers drew television and documentary work in abundance from networks like BBC, National Geographic and Discovery Channel.

Local filmmakers used the April – May lockdown as an opportunity to get their ideas on paper, writing independent features and short films and with nearly a dozen in production by the Fall. Live events were curtailed by social-distancing requirements, but innovative technology and ingenuity made it possible to reach audiences virtually through the camera lens, bringing fashion shows, art galleries and educational workshops to life once again and connecting more people than ever before. As 2021 begins, the FTC would like to thank the local industry professionals for their diligence, expertise and adaptability, making it possible to get cameras rolling again.
