How much do cities charge for filming?

Recommended Posts

Do they charge depending on how big a budget film it is? Or is it the same day rate for big or small budget films?

It depends on what you need from the city. The film permit itself is usually not very costly, but often you need police officers or the help of other city services for large budget shoots. On a large scale I'm not sure how it works - for example if you are interfering with a strip of business's. Cities like LA where production is a business charge much more than smaller cities that may not even have a dedicated film office.
