Covid-19 - Rules & Protocols



Due to the current CDC mandate and the Covid-19 situation, Green Street Studios is committed to taking extra precautions when recording voice over projects. Extra measures are being taken daily to thoroughly clean and sanitize all surfaces/equipment, including swapping out a new Pop filter on the microphone Prior to EVERY recording session. We will also be using a UV Light to clean the booth after every morning & afternoon recording session. Only Rob King (Recording Engineer) and one actor at a time will be physically present. Additional studio personnel, directors, Dev team members, will be calling in remotely. 


Masks will be worn at all times and required social distancing will be strictly enforced prior to and after recording sessions. We also encourage actors to bring their own personal headphones but be assured the ones at the studio will be disinfected between sessions and rotated between uses every 72 hours. No physical paper scripts or actor contracts at the recording sessions. All contracts will be mailed to Actor/Agent prior or after recording session via Docusign.

 

It is our suggestion that any high-risk actors would remain at home and call in for a remote session.  If they and their agent choose to record at the studio it will be our recommendation to the client that no other sessions should be scheduled that day.

 

Green Street is a private studio with separate entrance/exit.

 

CDC and LA County guidelines followed. 


Green Street Studios is a SAG/AFTRA Approved Facility.


Rob King is a certified and registered Covid-19 Compliance Officer in the state of California.

 

We are committed to keep the studio and VO Booth a safe environment for all.
