Film, Photography, and Taping Guidelines
Anyone who wishes to film on campus for commercial, non-news purposes must submit in writing to Marketing and Communications detailed information about the proposed project, including:
- Locations requested
- Date and time of shooting
- Length of shooting
- Number of people involved in each day’s shooting
- Type of activity to be filmed, taped or photographed
- List of equipment and vehicles used in connection with the project
- Sizes and composition of structures that will be used in the shoot
All movie scripts must be reviewed and approved by PAFA.
No mention is to be made of or recognition given to the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts unless specifically authorized.
Photography and filming/taping will be allowed only during times that are least likely to be disruptive to our museum, School of Fine Arts, and student life.
A certificate of insurance is required, naming the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, its officers, employees and agents as additional insured, providing comprehensive general liability insurance, including personal injury and property damage.
Anyone who requests commercial filming, taping, or photography on campus is required to work with PAFA Marketing & Communications, Office of the President, and Event Rentals to negotiate fees and specific terms of the agreement.
All location fees are due on the day of the shoot. Additional expenses (such as for Public Safety or Facilities Services) will be the responsibility of the requesting agency or production company.
