Hello there everyone,
I saw it mentioned in another post that the producer is in charge of permits and licenses as well as insurance (I put that in there). I wanted to touch on this subject for just a second.
Since Colorado isn't Califonia, is there much casue for obtaining permits and licenses for low budget productions in this state?
My personal experiences in Baltimore and Las Vegas, folks didn't give much hastle about having permits and licenses to shoot. As long as you weren't trying to disrupt traffic, shut down sidewalks and such, nobody questioned you about having permits and licenses for a low budget production. Don't get me wrong, if you have a crew of 15 people or more, a bunch or lights burning up the darkness and loud noises like gunfire booming, I'm sure the police would like to see your permits and licenses for shooting that night. BUT if you have something as minor as, a 5 person crew, 20 mins of shooting time of someone walking into a building or a minor dialogue scene outdoors, I don't think that many people (including the police) take notice.
On the same not about permits and licenses, does anyone know how easy are they to obtain in this state and what is the cost?
I would also like to ask if anyone carries insurance on their productions here?
If so, is there anyone local that handles this and what is the current rate in this state?
