Filming your Booked Event at a University Venue
If a production company is being hired out to tape the event to air on television or part of marketing or promotional materials for the company/organization then it falls within the guidelines of commercial filming and the normal procedures for commercial film requests applies. If taping will occur to document or preserve record of the event not to be publicized at large then no commercial permit form is required.
News photography and filming does not require a film permit. All news outlets should contact the Office of Media Relations prior to arriving on campus.

Students are not required to obtain a commercial filming permit from the Office of Public Affairs if their filming is related to academic course work or on behalf of a registered student organization. However, students must obtain permission from campus facility managers, including paying reservation fees, to film inside any campus buildings.
