A permit is required if your production involves the use of, or has impact upon public property, traffic flow, pedestrian movement, public facilities, parks, sidewalks, street areas or the temporary use of private property in a manner that significantly varies from its current land use. If you do need a permit, you will need a current Certificate of Insurance in order to proceed with the permitting process.

Here are the most common permit requirements:

  1. Filming in a Local Recreational Area

  2. Filming on a city street or in an alleyway
  3. Filming at Major Local Events
