CLEARING LOCATIONS AND OBTAINING FILM PERMIT IN ABU DHABI

FILM PERMITS IN ABU DHABI

A proper film permits for video or photo shoots is a must. We will contact the authorities and get all film permits in advance, sometimes before we embark on the location scout (recce).
Getting film permits for film and video productions may be more complicated if filming includes interruption to traffic. Our fixers and location managers will always know in advance what are the requirements and specifications of the required film permit. We prefer to begin the process as early as possible. if possible, to have all locations permitted and cleared at least one week before the planned shoot.

AERIAL FILM PERMITS

Each and every aerial foot requires pre-approved flight and film permit.
We will advise you about best ways to film at your desired locations. For that, we will let you know which locations may be restricted or allow for limited access for aerial filming.
