Holiday United Group Sends a 'HUG' to All Its Friends Amid Covid-19

An uplifting note from production company collaboration HUG amidst the global pandemic

Holiday United Group Sends a 'HUG' to All Its Friends Amid Covid-19

This is an unprecedented time in the world and the creative industry. The Covid-19 pandemic crisis has brought the globe to a stand still and will undoubtedly impact both personal and professional lives for the foreseeable future. While the world is paused, its people can take advantage of the time to plan how to restart it when the pandemic is over.

The safety of staff, crews, agency personnel, and clients is first priority. Production company Holiday Films & Nimble Content will not restart production unless they can ensure all its people are protected and safe in doing so. The company is coordinating with the Toronto Film Commission, Toronto Public Health, CPAT, and ACTRA, along with municipal, provincial, and federal governments for the latest actionable information and guidelines for keeping everyone safe and secure.

The production company prides itself on using creativity to adapt to and overcome adversity. It is a champion of change and this situation will be no different, welcoming the challenge to restart its business with new processes built from the knowledge the staff have learned today.

Challenging times calls for innovative solutions, aiming to succeed by supporting each other and working together, teamwork will replace isolation. Shared strategies will alleviate uncertainty. The creative company committed to this philosophy last year when it launched the Holiday United Group – an amalgamation of Holiday Films, Nimble Content, Recess Post and The Cavalry.

These HUG companies have adapted to the Covid-19 challenge by embracing technology. Recess Post has been successfully conducting virtual sessions allowing everyone to work safely and independently from home, which is now a permanent option available as it goes forward. Holiday Films and Nimble Content can create the same virtual experience for pre-production meetings and even shoots. What began as solutions for safety can become opportunities for smart streamlining.

The company is learning a lot during the Covid-19 crisis; that heroes don’t have to play sports or star in movies, but rather attend to the sick or stock shelves. Sometimes a reset can be a good thing. During this pause, the production house encourage the public to stay safe, stay home, and use the time to appreciate the little things that are often lost in the noise of normality. The creative industry is a demanding one and its workers typically spend a lot of time away from family, so now is the time to appreciate each other’s company for soon they will all be back, hard at it in the business they love.

"Our best to you and your families. We’re here to help in any way we can."
