Encouraged that film production may be officially back soon. Of course, safety will be the top priority.

We're hearing from many of you in the industry that want to know if filming is allowed yet in Texas. The short answer is no, not yet. We are hearing however that Phase II will be rolled out further in the coming weeks. We believe filming will be included along with the requirements relatively soon.

Additionally, Phase II allows for offices to open with 25% occupancy level. If you own or rent a production office, it is applicable to rules related to other types of offices as long as the requirements are met. You can find more information regarding this at the website: https://gov.texas.gov/opentexas
