Whether you are producing a TV show, commercial, feature, or music video – big budget or student film – we want to help make shooting in Jersey City the smoothest part of your production.
All information and permit requirements - insurance, parking, who needs a permit and what type - are in the FAQ. Please read it EVEN IF YOU THINK YOU DON'T NEED A PERMIT, and before you fill out the application or contact us.
We invite you to take a virtual tour of some of Jersey City’s locations, from the Hudson River waterfront to the Hackensack marshes. Jersey City is home to Victorian parks, urban streets, brownstones, storefronts, basketball courts, tennis courts, high rises, commercial cityscapes, industrial areas and rich historical sites. We are one of the most diverse cities in the US.
Large shoots with multiple locations will be required to attend a pre-production meeting to review shoot plans and production schedules with your production and location managers.
The deadline for permit applications is 4 business days before your scheduled shoot. More complex productions requiring special consideration by the JCPD must submit applications must 7 business days prior to the shoot date.
