Do you think:
A) The pandemic got him to think about something other than his movie.
B) He switched to another forum.
C) He’s busy watching movies to get additional ideas for his film.

I did wonder if I should visit some of the local tourist spots and shoot stock footage of bright sunny days with absolutely nobody about. Would be great for making an apocalypse video next year. Shopping centres, car parks, beaches, the Norfolk Broads - all deserted. Trouble is it's against the rules so such a shame. We'll never see this again I hope.

How illegal is it in the UK to impersonate a police officer and say you're filming just to prove people are staying away from those places? Just an idea.

Well - it's just illegal. AND my son who's a Police Officer would kill me! I could wave my press card which would sort it - but I hate doing that. The members of the public you meet hate you! They see the national media outside all sorts of places in lockdown and they deem it not remotely essential, so you get the flack.
