To obtain a film permit, the film company must complete a Film Permit Application at least 10 days prior to date on which permit is required for commercial motion picture use and 48 hours prior for still photography use. The City of Elizabeth requires all film companies to provide proof of adequate insurance for all film projects, insuring the City of Elizabeth up to $1,000,000.
The permitting process depends on the project type. Typically a permit can be issued within 48-72 hours.
The insurance forms are needed to protect the City of Elizabeth from liability during your shoot.
There is a mandatory fee of $500.00 for every 8 hours, made out to the City of Elizabeth.
