Producers urge govt to consider allowing filming activities

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 2 — The Malaysian Television Producers Association (PTVM) has urged the government to consider allowing filming activities for TV programmes in compliance with a suitable standard operating procedure (SOP).

The current ban on filming activities has resulted in production companies bearing huge losses as well as affecting the incomes of actors and other production workers, as many of them are not on fixed salaries but paid by working days.

The lack of broadcasting material will affect contracts between production companies and TV stations as shoots cannot be completed according to schedule.

According to a PTVM statement issued today, the National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (FINAS) has helped provide funds during this period when many companies are without projects as filming has been suspended during the enforcement of the movement control order (MCO) throughout the country except Sarawak.
