Obtaining the proper film permits for video or photo shoots is a must in many locations. Whether it is a military installation, a religious site, a school or a building site, camera crews are often not allowed to film without the right filming permits. For reports, news and documentary productions, the film permit is often given for free, but it requires contacting the relevant authorities and coordination in advance, sometimes even before the location scout (recce) takes place. Obtaining film permits in Israel and Palestine for film productions, and sometimes for corporate video shoots as well, may be more complicated as the filming may include an interruption of traffic. Our location manager will always know in advance what are the requirements and specifications of the required film permit, to be issued by one of the municipalities or the relevant public or government authority in Israel. We also arrange film permits for aerial filming of Israel.
