Shoot postponed due to bad weather

THE CONTEXT

Due to a poor weather forecast that included strong gusts of wind and heavy rainfall for the (night) shoot of the game’s final stage, we went to the set with the broker. It should be noted that the decor’s structure was designed to withstand wind gusts of up to 50 km/h.

GM CONSULTANT INTERVENTION

When we arrived at 6:00 p.m., the set was completely soaked and the “speedometer” screen installed on one of the lighting bridges indicated average winds of 46 km/h with gusts of over 65 km/h. While the rain had stopped, the forecasts did not predict a drop in wind speed in the following hours.

We first took the usual precautionary measures to postpone the start of filming to the extent permitted by the schedule requirements of a night shoot in the hope that the weather conditions would improve. These included delaying the entry of the audience that had arrived to watch the game show from the stands set up for the occasion, lowering part of the lighting bridges and certain LED screens, drying the set fittings, etc.

As on-site conditions remained unchanged, we did not object to postponing the shoot for obvious security reasons, to protect the participants, technicians and audience.
