   On February 19th,2020, a production unit used drones to film aerial scenes at Cathedral Grove on Canadas Vancouver Island. Principal photography began on February 24th and the film’s title was announced the Following day as Jurassic World Dominion. Filming in the Canadian City of Merrit, British Columbia was scheduled to begin on February 25. Filming in Merrit concluded in early March, and the shoot included the city’s downtown area. Later in March, production moved to England’s Hawley Common, where parts of the previous film (Jurassic World the Fallen Kingdom) were shot. Filming in Hawley Common, as well as Minley Woods, took place over a three-night shoot from March 9–11, with helicopter filming on the final night. Other filming locations in England would include Pinewood Studios, where the previous film was shot. Filming at the studios would include the 007 Stage, where large sets were assembled. An exterior set at Pinewood Studios depicted a crashed plane in a snowy environment. In total, more than 100 sets were made for the film. The film’s budget is $165 million. John Schwartzman is the films cinematographer, returning to the position after working with Trevorrow on the first Jurassic world film that was released on June 12th, 2015. The film was shot under the title Arcadia, which is the name of the ship that transported dinosaurs to the U.S. mainland in the previous film.

   On March 13, 2020, production was put on hiatus as a safety precaution due to the Covid 19 pandemic. A decision on when to resume production was originally expected within several weeks. Following the delay, the filmmakers saved time by doing post-production work on the footage that was already shot. Most of these scenes featured dinosaurs, allowing the visual effects team to get started on the creatures. Universal eventually confirmed that filming would resume in July, at Pinewood Studios. Universal planned to spend approximately $5 million on various safety protocols, including thousands of COVID-19 tests for each cast and crew member, who would be tested before produc-tion resumed and multiple times during filming. A medical facility would be commissioned to perform the tests, and doctors and nurses would be located on-site during filming. The cast and crew would also undergo COVID-19 training, and the Pinewood set would include 150 hand sanitizer stations and 1,800 safety signs to re-]mind them of safety precautions such as social distancing. Walk-through temperature testing stations would also be built. All members of the production team would be required to wear masks, except for actors during filming. The cast received a 109-page document outlining various safety protocols. In addition, the 750-person production team was divided into two groups, with a larger group consisting of crew members involved in construction, props, and other pre-filming activities. The smaller group consisted of Trevorrow, the cast, and essential crew members.
