Real Estate Development & Portfolio administers the Berkeley Campus Filming Program for a wide variety of commercial film shoots which are conducted on the Berkeley campus by outside companies.  University departments that have been contacted by production companies or location scouts should direct all inquiries to Contract Administrator, Barb Evans, at or (510) 642-9942. Each request to film will be considered on a case-by-case basis, carefully weighing the production company's location needs against the University's ability to accommodate those needs without disruption to the campus. 

For each shoot, RE will serve as the primary liaison between the campus department and the production company.  RE will work closely with the campus facility or building manager for approval and coordination of all campus filming activity.  RE will prepare a Filming License Agreement and obtain a Certificate of Insurance from the production company, and location fees will be charged based on the type of filming activity involved as well as the scope of the project.  RE will also determine if additional campus services are needed from UC Police Department, Facilities Services, Parking & Transportation, and/or the Campus Fire Marshal.   

*Inquiries for documentary and/or educational videos by outside companies should be directed to the following campus department:
