EastEnders To Use CGI And Camera Tricks To Disguise Social Distancing In Scenes

EastEnders To Use CGI And Camera Tricks To Disguise Social Distancing In Scenes

EastEnders has resumed filming following the coronavirus pandemic and all the stars on the show as well as the production and filming crews will have to socially distance in accordance with government guidelines.

Jake Wood, who plays Max Branning, claims that CGI will be used as well as clever camera tricks to make sure that the viewers at home know no different.

Jake is one of the first to go back on set, filming scenes alongside Adam Woodyatt (who plays Ian Beale) and Danny Dyer (who plays Mick Carter).

In an interview with Good Morning Britain, Jake told hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid: "It's gonna take a bit of getting used to I'll put it like that.

"We're all socially distanced, we are always two metres apart, it's quite extraordinary the way we are shooting it and the way we are filming it. I think really you're not gonna notice differences as a viewer."

He went on: "Yeah and there's other stuff they're doing as well, that I've been told I can't talk about. Almost every shot has got CGI in it."

Jake added they they're looking in to ways they can show two people kissing each other - without said two people actually locking lips.

According to reports, EastEnders isn't filming the characters in lockdown but it's still expected to be referenced and won't be back on air until potentially September.

Jake went on: "I think Walford is sort of in this world where everyone has been in lockdown, but again it's one of those really strange things.

"We're filming episodes now, we started this week, that will go out in quite a few weeks time, so it's difficult to predict where society and what the rules will be then, so we're not drawing too much to it.

"The Queen Vic is opening up yes, and everyone in there will be social distancing."
