Requesting Filming or Photography on Campus
Filming and photo shoots at Flagler College, including using unmanned aircraft that are launched, landed or operated on College property, are limited to times of the year when the College is not in session, unless special permission is granted. Smaller photo and media shoots may be approved on a case-by-case basis.
For all shoots, Flagler College requires a request form to be submitted to the Office of News and Information with specific information including:
- Proposed date and times of shoot, including set-up and breakdown
- Locations for shoot
- Special needs and requests (electrical, parking, moving furniture, etc.)
- Number of people involved in shoot
- Amount of equipment involved
- Additional information, including scripts and a more detailed proposal, may be requested
Flagler charges a fee for filming on campus that corresponds to the nature of the project. Please submit proposals with at least three weeks lead-time so your request may be reviewed. Only after the request has been approved by the College will filming or photography be allowed.
Flagler also requires a Certificate of Liability Insurance, as well as a signed media agreement.
No filming or photography will be allowed that portrays the College or its students, faculty and staff in a negative way.
Flagler College does not provide any equipment or services during filming. As much of the campus is historic, the College does not permit any activities that will damage, alter or impact the campus.
If city streets are being blocked or additional street parking is needed, you must contact the city of St. Augustine: (904) 825-1004.
Other points to consider before submitting your request
- A member of the Flagler College staff will conduct a walkthrough with production team before and after filming.
- If the College determines that your project requires that a Flagler Security Guard on duty, this will be at the production company's expense.
- Generally, the College cannot close campus areas, or restrict any general access to areas like the rotunda. In some cases, this may be allowed, but only when school is not in session.
- The use of any oil-based smoke solution is forbidden.
- Only Flagler College staff will be permitted to move furnishings and artwork.
- All film shot in Flagler College is for one-time usage and only for the approved project.
- A Flagler College representative will be allowed access to the shooting location at all times.
- It is generally expected that the production company will give the College credit in the film.
- Wedding photos are not permitted unless the bride and/or groom is a current student or alumnus of Flagler College. Alumni should contact the Office of Alumni Relations for approval.
