Songbird is the new Michael Bay movie and they have had to stop filming due to a lack of transparency about security protocols.
The thriller Songbird, produced by Michael Bay, you have run into an obstacle. SAG-AFTRA (The Film Actors Guild and the American Federation of Radio and Television Artists) went into production with an order from "Do not work", citing non-compliance with mandatory security practices.
"The producer of the Songbird film has been unable to complete the signing process and therefore has not signed any applicable SAG-AFTRA agreements." It can be read in the notice. As such, SAG-AFTRA members are instructed to retain any acting services and not or perform any covered work for this production until further notice from the union. ”
So Michael Bay will have to fix it if he wants to continue filming.
SAG-AFTRA also set out the consequences for disobeying the Do Not Work order.
"Please note that accepting employment or performing services at Songbird may be considered a violation of Global Rule One. Violation of this order may result in disciplinary action in accordance with the SAG-AFTRA Constitution."
California television and film production was allowed to resume on June 12, albeit with health protocols to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. So it seems that Songbird have not been entirely transparent.
In addition to Michael Bay, Songbird is produced by Adam Goodman and Andrew Sugerman of Invisible Narratives. Jessica Hall Malanaphy, Jeanette Volturno, Marcei A. Brown, and Rick A. Osako of Catchlight Films are also producers. The film, directed and co-written by Adam Mason, focuses on a love story that takes place during the confinement of the pandemic. Demi Moore, Craig Robinson, Paul Walter Hauser, and Peter Stormare joined the cast on June 24.
Hopefully Michael Bay can continue production and finish the movie.
