Broadcast media may film exterior areas of campus and people at a distance, but need permission to go inside buildings, so as not to disturb classes or other campus business. They also need permission to film anyone who could be identified easily on TV. Long-form news and documentary shoots must sign a location release form, provided by Media Relations, which can help facilitate filming requests.
Video of UC Berkeley is available in HD, SD, Beta and DVcam formats. To request a copy, contact Roxanne Makasdjian, (510) 642-6051 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
