Permitting

If a permit is needed for your production allow 7 – 10 business days for approvals.  Approval times vary based on the complexity of your request.  Large scale and/or complex production projects (those involving stunts, pyrotechnics, traffic closures, etc.) may require coordination with several city, county or state departments and/or a meeting with the location manager.  We do our best to expedite all requests.

A permit is needed if your project:

  • Impacts city/county/state property, equipment or facilities, including public property (i.e. sidewalks, highways, etc.);
  • Involves production vehicles/crew vehicles parking on the street or right-of-way;
  • involves the use of tent or other temporary structure(s);
  • involves the use of pyrotechnics, explosives or other incendiary devices;
  • involves the display of any firearms or use of gunfire;
  • or involves stunts of any kind.

A permit is NOT needed if:

  • You are producing a news segment or news feature;
  • If your production is taking place in a production studio;
  • If your production is taking place on private property and the owner has approved the filming and none of the above-mentioned activities/stunts are taking place;
  • If you are taking still shot photography;
  • If you are using a handheld camera and no other production equipment.
