Filming permits are required when utilizing the right of ways (sidewalks, parking lots, streets, etc.) and on city, University of Illinois or Park District property. Our easy permitting process will allow you to fill out one permit for all locations within Champaign County. (Note: filming on the University of Illinois campus requires separate documentation. Contact us to get connected.)
Review the guidelines and complete the film permit to get started with your project in Champaign-Urbana.
News crews, handheld interviews, documentaries, B-roll and other low impact productions typically do not require a permit, as long as it does not interfere with vehicular or pedestrian traffic. Let us know your production plan and we can advise you.
