Question by Dream Smasher: General restrictions for a indie documentary film crew?
I am getting ready to film a documentary film and was wondering if there are any legal requirements. This is not a big production with lots of crew. Just 3 people and all equipment will be portable. We will not need to block traffic or anything. Mainly just interviews. Some filming will be in public places like parks and sidewalks. Do I need a permit from the city. Technically, the filming will take place over a year, so again, not a huge production.

I don’t think you’ll need one unless you will be competing for space with other crews or photographers.
