Spears & Arrows enacted an initiative to create content during quarantine. We want to share stories about COVID-19 that are authentic and personal. All footage is shot in quarantine. Our first endeavor is “Distant Yet Close” by Don Broida.
Spears & Arrows is creating virtual production solutions during this COVID-19 era. Here is our first exhibit as to how we can produce new & original content while in quarantine. Although we did not produce this spot, we would like to tell you how we’ll shoot yours with our exclusive directors who live all over the globe.
S&A director Ago Panini was tasked to contribute on a job in Italy while under quarantine from COVID-19. Ago Panini, who is based in Rome, was enlisted with 14 other directors and cinematographers to create a commercial for VODAFONE.
For the making of the film, no director, DP or actor left home. All scenes were shot in their quarantined locations using their quarantined networks. Everything was made through the Vodafone network: casting, shooting, editing and post production.
