  • Recommended procedure
    A phone call before the project kick-off can clarify questions and speed up the procedure.
    Alternatively, you can fill out the contact form on this home page.
    To issue a filming and photo shoot permit, we require a written request stating invoicing address, a rough story outline and the desired timing and intended shooting or filming locations.

  • Contracts
    For all forms of filming and photo shoots we issue a permit in the form of a contract.
    You must provide proof of third-party liability insurance cover of at least € 50,000.
