Most municipal and public property can be obtained as a filming location with advanced notification, proof of insurance, and appropriate usage fees. Generally, municipal or public locations require proper permitting paperwork to be filed at least one week prior to filming. As with any logistical issue pertaining to your production, the most lead time possible will help us minimize red tape. The Oklahoma Film & Music Office is here to help you contact the proper authorities for these locations.
Shooting on private and corporate property always requires permission from the owner and/or management of that location. Securing these locations and appropriate location agreements is the responsibility of the production. The Oklahoma Film & Music Office can provide letters of support and, in some cases, contact information. If you are seriously considering a location, approach the owner or manager about your plans and negotiate for its use. Please remember that property owners are not obligated to accommodate your production.
