Special Event Documentation

The WACD video lab manager coordinates video documentation services for department-sponsored special events. The producer of the special event must schedule a meeting with the Senior Public Events Manager and the video lab manager at least 14 business days in advance of the requested shoot date to discuss the details.

Location Permits

According to policies set forth by the University of California's Events Office, location filming permits are required when videotaping anywhere on the UCLA campus, including inside Kaufman Hall. The only exception is the videotaping of rehearsals inside studios and theaters. Applications are available from the Events Office, located at 168 Kerckhoff Hall, or from the video lab manager. Completed applications are to be turned into the Events Office one week prior to your shooting dates. The permit fee will be waived for students shooting class related projects. All other projects may be assessed a fee.

Holiday Lab Closure

During closures, all files for all users on all computers will be erased. Please make arrangements to transfer your valuable data to your own storage devices prior to this date.

One final note: access to lab facilities and equipment is a privilege, not a right. Any infraction of any of the guidelines set forth in this document may result in the suspension or termination of lab privileges.
