103 - John Maher Locations

Updated: May 18, 2020

In This Episode…

We discuss a website that has live updates on the stats of the Covid-19 spread, as well as an article by the Hollywood Reporter that claims 120,000 jobs lost since the beginning of the epidemic, and how they are working with production companies to offer 2weeks severance to displaced employees. We also discuss two petitions for Federal Aid. Once for film industry workers, and one for live event industry personnel. We also chat with NYC Location Manager and Studio Owner John Maher. He is on the front lines of holds and cancellations with both his studio and as a location scout. He also spoke with the NYC Mayor's Office about the status of issued permits.
