As the Square is a public space, personal photographs and videos are fair game! Commercial photography/film shoots are a different story however and you must obtain an event permit to be on site. This includes anything that has a “set-up” or could impede or interfere with another possible event. At this time the Square does not offer special rates for film shoots.
News teams, weather reporting, and all other forms of ENG (Electronic News Gathering) do not require a permit. If you are interested in coming on site for a reason like this please contact Natalie Belman, Manager of Events & Partnerships, at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss availability and ease of access.
