Please submit the application form a minimum of 21 business days before the production/shoot is scheduled; due to the content and/or type of props, some shoots may require additional review time.
After you complete and submit the appropriate form, the Dean's Office will begin a review; and in some instances, The Offices of Public Safety, Risk Management, and General Counsel may need to review a shoot/production. Upon completion of all reviews you will receive a communication from the Dean's Office and/or Risk Management containing recommendations/guidance for your production. Do not move forward with filming until you receive confirmation.
Each form allows you to provide information for up to three locations. This eliminates the need for you to complete multiple forms for a single media production/film shoot. It is important that you break down your shoot by each filming location.
For example, if you will be shooting in New York City over the course of a week in a park, on a street, and at a restaurant, each distinct location should be separate in the online form and show the dates for that location only. Be sure to supply detailed descriptions of action or activities and note which location (#1, #2, or #3) it corresponds to. The more detail you provide the fewer follow-up questions will be asked. Each prop field has space that allows you to indicate at which location/s (#1, #2, or #3) you will be using the prop and to provide details regarding how you are using it. Some props require review and approval of Public Safety, the Dean's Office and/or Risk Management.
