Falcon Evacuates Crew From Europe, Pauses Production

SAN FRANCISCO — The cast and crew of a Falcon Studios production filming in the Austrian Alps have returned safely to the United States following an "emergency evacuation" in the wake of a European travel ban enacted to help arrest the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus.

Plans for a forthcoming NakedSword Originals shoot in Barcelona have been canceled; the company is the reigning XBIZ winner for Gay Studio of the Year.

Falcon/NakedSword has also enacted a temporary production moratorium for all the company's brands.

A statement to XBIZ from FNS President Tim Valenti follows:

We take the health of performers, crew and staff very seriously, and we're following recommendations of all national, state and local authorities.

As of Thursday last week, shortly after the European travel ban was announced, we took immediate action and orchestrated an emergency evacuation of our cast and crew to return to the United States. We then made the decision to halt production and have all our employees work from home until further notice.

We will continue to update our sites and release DVDs and downloads that are completed. Shipping of DVD product will continue as long as it remains safe for our fulfillment staff. We are continually monitoring the situation and making adjustments as necessary to preserve the safety of all.
