Commercial Filming Application and Resources

Individuals may take photographs, shoot video on any campus, and record written and spoken statements ("Filming" or "Film") for personal, noncommercial use without permission from ASU. However, such recordings may not be broadcast or used for commercial purposes. Be aware that private recordings may be prohibited in certain locations or at select events. Please also be aware of any privacy rights of the people you film or record.

Note to ASU students, faculty or staff participating in any Filming: Arizona State University and Arizona Board of Regents policies that govern your conduct also apply to images of you that are captured on Film. Therefore, you may be subject to disciplinary action if you are filmed engaging in behavior that violates ASU policies. Also be aware that, even if you do not engage in prohibited behavior, the resulting Film may offer an unflattering portrayal of you as an individual or member of a group. Please address any concerns with the appropriate ASU office and the producer of the Film before agreeing to participate.

Filming (which includes photo, motion picture, video recording, or written or spoken statements) on any campus requires advance approval by ASU and must comply with the ASU’s Filming policy, unless the Filming is for personal, noncommercial use. 

NOTE: Submit your application to Film on campus at least 15 business days prior to your shoot date. ASU requires this amount of time to process your request.
