Filming FAQs

If you are within 300 linear feet of the filming location impacted by filming, parking or posting of “No Parking” signs in front of your property, you will receive a notification letter with all the details of the proposed shoot and with the phone number for the location manager. The city’s Film Office contact information is also on the letter.

If you have a question or concern Monday through Thursday before 8:00 am or after 5:00 pm or on Friday before 8:00 am or after 4:00 pm (city is closed every other Friday), please call the watch commander at (626) 744-4620 and report your issue.  They will relay your concern to either the film monitor or the police officer, if they are assigned to the shoot.
