    Default Avatar sequels restart filming

    https://deadline.com/2020/05/new-zea...ng-1202929138/

    New Zealandís health and safety production protocols have been endorsed by the national government, we can reveal, meaning production can restart in the country after it was halted by the coronavirus pandemic.

    Some film and TV shoots ďare already safely underway,Ē the New Zealand Film Commission has confirmed to us. This potentially paves the way for the countryís highest-profile productions, James Cameronís Avatar sequels and Amazonís The Lord Of The Rings series, to get back underway in coming months.

    Cameron and producer Jon Landau were filming live-action elements of the big-budget sequels when the pandemic struck. Since then, they have continued to work on the filmís virtual production in California and with Weta Digital on the visual effects.
    While NZ has been taking the right action, I still feel they should have waited on this - it's still very dangerous and there isn't a cure. All it take is one person getting the virus and large amounts of people may die from this. Hollywood needs to put its foot down on this, stop everything until it's completely safe. People will die when mistakes get made.

    More people are dying by suicide than the virus now in the Bay Area of California. This just save 1 life mantra is bs. The lockdown is worse than the disease now.

    That’s only happened because of the lockdown. Suicide isn’t infectious.

    Yeah, this is a stupid right wing talking point. It's like more people die of heart attack than drunk driving, so why are we stopping people from driving while intoxicated.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    The suicide rate goes up with the unemployment rate which is greatly increased by the lockdown.

    Yes, California is so full of conservatives, no you are full of it.

    It is. That's why Arnold Schwartzneggar and Reagan became its governors.

    Here is the suicide study I posted back in April in the paragraph under page number 14 is where the grim numbers are.

    I think it's a difficult decision with no right answer.

    Yes, we don't have a vacinne right now. But it may take years to find a cure, and we can't stay locked down forever. No one wants to spread discease, but no one can indefinately survive without working. I'm just glad I'm not the one who has to make these decisions, because it's hard.

    Good thing then... the guys in charge making decisions are mostly sociopaths
