FILMING REQUESTS

USC receives requests from film companies, independent movie producers, and students to film on campus. FMS is part of the approval processed based on three different categories:

A. USC Students enrolled in the USC School of Cinematic Arts

Please contact the Student Production Office at (213) 740-2895. They will inform you of their permitting processes and procedures.

If your filming project involves the following special maintenance needs, an FMS work order, authorized signature, and fees are required:

        Staffing (over time/weekends) ($TBD)
        Sprinklers turned on/off ($30.00)
        Lighting/electrical changes  ($50.00)
        Heating or air conditioning changes  ($50.00)

Debbie Aguilar, Associate Director, Customer Resource Center (CRC), will create a work order and forward the request to the appropriate service department. All fees will be itemized on the work order and submitted to CRC for billing.

PLEASE NOTE: Use the USC Owned Property Location Permit to obtain the proper signatures.

After you have placed a work order through CRC and received the appropriate signatures, email the permit to Debbie Aguilar for review.  She will send you an email confirmation within 1-2 days (serving as an electronic signature), and you will continue the permitting process as directed by the USC Student Production Office.

B. USC Students NOT enrolled in the USC School of Cinematic Arts

Please contact the USC Physical Production Office at (213) 740-1298.  They will inform you of their permitting processes and procedures.

C. Individuals and Companies NOT enrolled or affiliated with USC

Please contact the USC Campus Filming Office at (213) 740-6591.  They will inform you of their permitting processes and procedures.
