Indie Source Magazine article about The Challenges of Film Permitting and Approvals
Indie Source Magazine's October 31, 2012 magazine (best viewed on a tablet format) allowed me to reflect on the market issues we hear about the filming/TV approval process, both from government and filmmakers.
There's lots of reasons things happen - both good and not so good - but there is a clear positive intent from everyone to try to make things better for cash starved local communities and film/TV/event producers.
Check out the article and share your stories and experiences about film approvals and permitting from local governments. We'd love to hear your perspective, too!
