Will Shooting of Ramadan Series Come to a Halt Resulting In Cancellation of Shows?
Egypt is now facing a lock-down and is under nationwide curfew to limit the spread of the coronavirus, but before this crisis occurred, the annual Ramadan TV series were still being filmed. So the question here remains, with all the ongoing troubles, will shooting come to a halt?
Well, the Egyptian Actors Syndicate stressed recently that there hasn’t been any official decision regarding a ban to film any series so far, but with the ongoing precautionary measures, the situation is constantly changing.
Before announcing the curfew, the syndicate has postponed shooting scenes that require/ include a large gathering of people.
Meanwhile, the Egyptian Producer and Screenwriter, Mohamed Hefzy has indeed suspended shooting of the Arabic Horror Series ‘Paranormal’ as a precautionary measure to maintain the safety of the crew.
On the other hand, a number of Egyptian artists are asking those in charge to actually suspend filming until all of this comes to an end, for at least a period of 15 days! Rania Youssef, Screenwriter Mariam Naoum, and Filmmaker Yousry Nasrallah are all on the same page regarding this issue.
Things are rapidly changing which is of course affecting the media scene in Egypt, and as much as it will hurt a lot of people to have their favorite series canceled, it is indeed an important measure that has to be taken.
From what we know so far, most of the shootings are currently on hold due to the curfew that limited shooting hours, and we’re waiting to hear more from the syndicate…
