COVID-19: Procedures to protect ourselves and our community as of March 17, 2020

We’re all in this together and the safety of our community is of utmost importance to us. As a result, Shoreline Studios has taken extra measures to ensure the well-being of our staff, clients, and students, and help flatten the curve. We encourage any feedback, suggestions, and questions!

Details of our current protocols at Shoreline Studios (which are subject to change as the situation evolves) are:

 

 

  1. Prior to and immediately following each session, mics, mic stands, camera, tripods, lighting equipment, cables, door handles, seating, and all surfaces in the studio and common areas will be sanitized.
     

  2. We are staggering any and all sessions to limit the number of attendees at the studio, including staff. Everyone is required to practice safe distancing while in the office space (2 meters). Outside of their staggered attendance at Shoreline Studios, all non-essential staff are staying home, practicing physical distancing, and frequent hand washing.
     

  3. Audition call times will be staggered to limit crowding and waiting room seating will be sectional. Please remain outside or in your vehicle until approximately five (5) minutes prior to your call time. Actors must come audition ready (wardrobe/hair/make-up done) to limit their time in the facility.
     

  4. Unless the actor is a minor, in which a guardian is required to accompany them, we ask that any additional personnel remain outside.
     

  5. All common areas will have markers on the floor to help promote proper social distancing. While we have expanded our waiting room, please refrain from roaming and/or pacing.
     

  6. Actors will be required to bring their own pen to sign in with.
     

  7. Individuals are required to bring and wear a mask at all times while in the facility, with the exception being during their audition, in the casting studio. Additional Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is optional. We require everyone to make use of the hand sanitizing station located at the front entrance as they enter the facility. Additional stations will be available throughout the facility.
     

  8. All main doorways will be propped open. Shoreline Studios works with numerous creatives and any office tenants are encouraged to keep their doors closed to prevent accidental entries.
     

  9. Due to limited space on the main stairway, please be mindful to allow for single use at any one time. When possible, please refrain from using the railings.
     

  10. Please abstain from touching anything that does not require contact (ie. plants, desks, chairs, paintings, etc). To prevent the spread of potential infection, we will be suspending the use of our water stations and while restrooms will be sanitized throughout the day, they are limited to emergency use.
     

  11. Classes and workshops are being postponed until further notice or adjusted to accommodate an online format. For courses running virtually, we have several options for efficiently communicating during sessions, which include Zoom or Skype.
     

  12. We are implementing a limit of 3 or fewer personnel working in a casting studio at any given time. Coaching sessions will continue to be booked hourly. Self-Taping sessions will continue to be billed based on the amount of time used.
     

  13. If at any time prior to a confirmed session, the actor or client at all feels unwell or even uncomfortable leaving their homes, we require them to cancel their audition time or booking - no questions asked. If we suspect an actor or client is less than 100% when they arrive, they will be asked to leave immediately.
     

  14. Payment stations will be sanitized in the event the client decides to make payment via card. Interac E-Transfers are preferred in the interim to limit any physical exchanges.

We have a Zero Tolerance policy. Individuals violating these guidelines are subject to removal from the facility whether they have auditioned or not and will not be permitted reentry until they can insure their cooperation with the above protocols. Thank you for your understanding and support. Please contact us for more information as per below.
