HOW THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN AFFECTS YOU

As of midnight October 1st, many of the "non-essential" functions of the Federal Government were shut down after the House and Senate could not agree on a budget extension. During this time, many services will be impacted, including film permitting for shoots taking place on federal land, including the U.S. Forest Service, the National Parks Service and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). (One exception: if you have already been issued a permit to shoot on BLM property in San Bernardino County, CA you may continue with your scheduled filming; currently, this is the only exception that we are aware of.)

At this time the stated policy is that the aforementioned federal agencies will not be issuing any film permits, nor will they honor permits previously issued for filming on federal lands, while the shutdown is in effect. For more information, go to
www.doi.gov/shutdown. Many popular filming spots in California have been affected by the shut down. Please click here for details from FilmLA.

If you have a shoot, or upcoming shoot, that has been interrupted by the Federal Government shut down it is recommended that you consult your insurance broker to verify coverage. Generally there will be no coverage under an insurance policy if no permit has been issued. If your production is insured under a wrap-up program you should consult the wrap-up broker. Do not assume that a wrap-up policy will cover a claim just because your insurance policy considers it a covered incident.

It is also important to note that state parks, including state historic sites, throughout the country will continue to process permits, and allow filming on its land. Please visit your state’s park service website for further information.
