More on policies, procedures
Approval to film should not be assumed until all of the above has been reviewed, accepted, and the filming officially confirmed by the Special Programs Coordinator.
Arrival, campus parking, catering, prep, filming, strike or other activities are only allowed between 7 a.m. (no earlier) and 10 p.m. (no later). Production company must work between these "hard" times which are in conformance to the University's good neighbor policy with thousands of residents on or adjacent to our campus.
Production truck engines are to be turned off as soon as possible and please keep all noise levels to a minimum.
All directional signs must be attached to cones or stanchions, not hung on campus poles, trees, etc. The production company provides these and is also responsible for removing all of them by contracted departure time.
Temporary construction and equipment set-up, trucks, generators and other filming equipment must neither damage University property nor block campus driveways, intersections, fire lanes, exits, hallways, lobbies, entrances, walkways or any common areas on campus. All activities associated with the filming must be conducted safely and in accordance with OSHA and LAFD standards. As such, production company crew/staff/talent must utilize safety procedures that will ensure their safety as well as that of the University faculty, staff, students, and visitors.
Vehicles are not allowed to park less than 15 feet from fire hydrants. If an exception to the 'red zone/no parking' policy is secured in advance of filming date, vehicles in red zones must be marked off with cones, not interfere with vehicular or pedestrian safety and traffic flow and/or have an officer present. Stopping traffic and street or lane closures are not permitted on any campus street for filming at any time.
Pedestrian safety and access to campus areas must be maintained at all times. No obstructions or tripping hazards are allowed. If production cables lay across pedestrian walkways, exits, paths or sidewalks, the cables must be protected (e.g. rubber matting) to provide a minimum 3-4 foot walkway as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act. Craft service tables may not be set up in pedestrian right-of-way areas such as sidewalks.
Generators must be grounded to earth prior to hookup.
If advance permission is granted for Condor or other heavy equipment on grass, plywood must be laid out under the tires when driving and parked, then adding cones around base.
The Special Programs Coordinator and campus security officers have a primary responsibility to ensure that filmings are done safely and with a minimum amount of disruption to the University community.
Use of lighting outside the filming location, bullhorns, siren, public address systems, blank gunfire, explosions or other noise-creating devices at any time is prohibited. Helicopter filming is banned in residential areas. Requests for campus helicopter landings or filmings from the air are rarely granted.
No firearms or other weapons are allowed on campus.
Smoking is limited to certain designated outdoor areas. Smoking will not be permitted in any University buildings. All smoking must take place 20 feet from any building while on the University campus. PRODUCTION COMPANY will provide site receptacles (ex.: buckets with sand) for extinguishing the cigarettes/cigars for their crew/talent use, including several at Base Camp.
No use of Pepperdine University's names, likeness, marks, logos, trademarks, abbreviations or those of any of its operating units, affiliates or supporting organizations is permitted. Exceptions will only be considered when a written detailed description of use is received at least 3-4 weeks in advance of filming date.
Unless expressly approved in advance by the Office of Special Programs, do not bring guests and animals to the location.
