Standby Carpenter, Standby Painter, A Question Of Covering Your Ass

Don’t move anything and you may not need standby but be sure it is going to be safe all day every day.
You are responsible for this decision and thus for anything that may happen regarding the set.
It is true that you may not need standby construction but you, absolutely, should not find yourself and your art department being asked to move walls and ceilings.
If it is a matter of safety, production cannot refuse you the appropriate qualified labour to do so but you should get it confirmed solidly before accepting the lack of standby, a falling flat is the easiest way to right of a camera and flatten a runner.
That being said, a properly build set and a professional crew should not endanger each other under normal circumstances even during a long form shoot.
