Abstract or Summary

Worldwide lockdowns brought film productions to a grinding halt. For many, this meant time to focus on their own creative projects, and without the resources they could normally access, filmmakers were creative in the construction of new works. Lockdown opened new possibilities for collaboration and experimentation and with studios closed, COVID-19 became an equalizer of resources. Filmmakers utilized technology on hand, relationships were nurtured through digital connections, momentum became internally rather than financially motivated, and many creative people who were usually time-poor found themselves with an abundance of the resource of time.
