Use of Schools for Filming and Parking During Summer Break

Production Alert FilmLA

School facilities may still be available for filming and/or parking use during Summer Break, however requests must be discussed and coordinated with school site administrators prior to applications being submitted to FilmLA for processing. With limited staffing during Summer Break, communication with school administrators, procuring custodial staff, and gaining access to school sites may be challenging.

As a reminder, basic requests take 4-5-business days to process, depending on the district. Use of special effects, animals, and other extraordinary activity may require more time. Please note that during Summer School, the school may have a different contact or administrator.

If you have any questions, please contact the FilmLA Schools Team at
