Filming permits are required when used in the right of ways (sidewalks, parking lots, streets, etc.) and on city, University of Illinois, or Park District property. Our easy permitting process will allow you to fill out one permit for all locations within Champaign County. (Note: filming on the University of Illinois campus requires separate documentation. Contact us to get connected.)
Review the guidelines and complete the film permit to get started with your project in Champaign County.
News crews, handheld interviews, documentaries, B-roll, and other low impact productions typically do not require a permit, as long as it does not interfere with vehicular or pedestrian traffic. Let us know your production plan and we can advise you.
