New York City - New Draft of Proposed Permit Rules


New York City - New Draft of Proposed Permit Rules as of Mon Oct 29, 2007


Quote:
A permit would not be required if the production uses hand-held devices or tripods, its activity does not present an obstruction, and it is not using equipment or vehicles. An optional permit would be available in these instances, and would not require liability insurance ...

“Obstruction” is defined in the proposed rule as the assertion of exclusive control over a public space resulting in the obstruction of one or more lanes of a street or walkway, or when production activity results in either less than eight feet or one-half the width of the sidewalk or passageway (whichever is greater) being available for unobstructed sidewalk use by pedestrians.

It looks like the Optional Permits are basically an FYI for the city government so they can keep track of all the filming activity. But for myself, I think the Optional Permits are a great way of avoiding being hassled on simple shoots.
