KUALA LUMPUR – Makeup artists involved in filming activities must wear face shield and gloves while they carry out their duties.
Besides that, the makeup tools and accessories cannot be shared among artists, said Senior Minister (Security Cluster), Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob when asked about the standard operating procedures (SOP) of the makeup artists during the shooting of a production.
“The SOP says that the makeup artists must wear face shield and gloves. Face shield is different from face mask. It is the plastic covering the whole face, not just the nose and mouth.
“Makeup tools and accessories also cannot be shared. Each artist needs to use their personalised set,” he said during a news conference today.
The filming session has been set on freeze since the Movement Control Order (MCO) started on 18 March. During an announcement yesterday, Ismail Sabri said that filming can resume next Wednesday on 10 June.
Meanwhile, he said that it is not compulsory for the production crew and artists to go for the Covid-19 screening before the shooting.
However, voluntary screening is welcomed, he said.
“The government only implements mandatory for screening when there is a Covid-19 case in an area. If there is no Covid-19 positive case, we do not make it compulsory.
“For example, in the prison, before this, we do not make it mandatory but when there is a positive case in the Sungai Buloh Prison, we make it compulsory for all inmates and prison officers to be tested.
“In this case, we do not have a filming cluster yet,” he said.
Ismail Sabri also said that the production company is requested to appoint a safety officer to monitor the health and safety of the production. –MalaysiaGazette
