New social distancing measures implemented around the world have been a nightmare for movie shoots, as the costs of extensive sanitary measures are compounded by the difficulty of shooting with the fewest people on set. In an interview with USA Today, Tom Holland described the arduous task of filming Spider-Man: No Way Home while observing social distancing rules.
“No, the Spider-Man mask does not count as PPE. So, I have to wear two masks. And they have to paint them. No, that is not true. Obviously, when we are in scenes we have to take our masks. We have a system light, blue and yellow. When the blue light is on, the actors can take off their masks to act, obviously. When the yellow light is on, we have to put the masks back on and then leave the set for the team members. They can come in and move things around and do the things they need to do. At first when they told me the system sounded exhausting, but it works great and there have been no problems so far. “

Sometimes they realize one thing, and a whole world of possibilities opens up and they go off on a tangent, which it might not be more different or more correct than what we’re doing. It’s a shame sometimes that things leak and things get screwed up. But right now, with this movie, I think we’re doing a very, very good I work to keep things that should be a secret secret. And I’m sure there are things that are happening that I have no idea about. I mean, I’m usually the last person to know what’s going on, because of this ridiculous rumor that I spoil the movies. “
Hopefully all this effort is being put to an end There is no way home Safely and without revealing spoilers, it will translate into a movie-worthy experience for audiences, helping to revive the theater industry after the crushing blow of the new era of social distancing.
