It is important to contact the film office prior to any filming activity. We require a permit to be on file along with a certificate of insurance. Please allow three working days after the receipt of your completed application and insurance to obtain a permit if your shoot has no special requirements. Allow seven working days if there are pyrotechnics, stunts, street closures or traffic control.
