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…
Hashtag Saving Egyptian Lives Abroad
The Coronavirus pandemic has caused so much crisis and conflict amongst all countries worldwide. People have been dying, suffering, and much more. Events, concerts, and almost everything is either being cancelled or postponed momentarily for safety precautions all around the globe.
What has been an important choice of topic is the fact that all flights are cancelled and many countries aren’t allowing travel within the country itself or worldwide. The problem here is that during the Coronavirus crisis, people are incapable of returning back to their home countries or towns,leaving families in fear of the pandemic and of it expanding to the point of no return.
For instance, families whom have their daughters or sons studying abroad are terrified of what may happen to their children. Each Country and City has its own cases and updates of the Coronavirus so each area’s statistics as well as environment may vary. Children who are longing to see their family and be in their parent’s arms in this scary time are hopelessly trying to find a way back to their country or maybe even any safety or shelter.
Last week, the Ministry of Immigration advised all Egyptians stuck abroad to reach out to the country’s Minister in case they are incapable of returning due to quarantines and lock downs. Since the pandemic is escalating pretty quickly, this hasn’t helped people at all.
Egyptians are known for their creative ideas as well as their constant love and support, which is why they have created an amazing initiative that will help Egyptians that are stuck abroad! A group called Travel Secrets Club was created on Facebook as a platform for people to discuss the flight issues and having their loved ones stuck in other countries.
Alongside this, a powerful hashtag “#احنا_في_ظهرك, translated in English to “We’ve got your back” has been booming and doing wonders for the Egyptians who are in need! From Sudan, Milano, to Germany, many Egyptians are stuck and in need of help and shelter. Which is why it is very gracious and kind of the Egyptians situated all around the globe that are offering places to stay and help if needed.
This hashtag and group has been proving to be quite efficient and useful and people as well as the members of the group are quite content with the procedure of things. At least their families will be in safe condition for the mean time.
In this time of crisis, it’s nice to see people offer a little bit of kindness for those who are in need. We must take care of each other and help people, not just hide at home and sit this pandemic outbreak out. Help people and love them unconditionally, we all need the help we could get.
For those of you who have brothers, sisters, parents, or any family members stuck somewhere in a Coronavirus hot-spot and are trying to find help and safety for them, follow the group and search the hashtag. Tremendously, many people are offering help and participating in this movement of kindness. Spread safety, spread love.
