ShopTalk Breakfast, Tuesday May 1, 2018
Joan Aguado, Film Liaison with the City of South Pasadena, was our speaker at ShopTalk on Tuesday, April 3 and led an informative and entertaining discussion on filming in the City. Joan shared some of the movies, TV shows and commercials filmed in South Pasadena and the benefits of having a good relationship with the entertainment industry.
Here are some interesting facts that she shared with the group:
Everyone needs a film permit if they shoot in South Pasadena
Permit and Location fees collected offset City support costs – this is not a money-maker for the City
The upside of filming in the community is that film crews shop here and come back!
Things to keep in mind if you are approached to film at your residence or place of business:
Film companies DO have a budget – be able to negotiate
There is no going rate
NEVER let them use your bathroom!
Contact Joan if you have any questions at 626-403-7263
If you are planning an event in town (large or small) and would prefer there not be filming in the area that day, call Joan and let her know. She will steer projects away from the event, if possible, so let her know as soon as the date is firm.
City Councilmember Bob Joe gave an update on the City:
South Pasadena has a new Chief Deputy Clerk, Mark Donahue
The Rialto Theatre Historical Structure Report has been completed by Mosaic and is currently undergoing Cultural Heritage Review
A No Smoking City Ordinance will be on the City Council agenda on April 18
Mark your calendar for our next Shoptalk breakfast on Tuesday, May 1. The speaker will be City Councilmember Diana Mahmud discussing Community Choice Energy.
ShopTalk Breakfast is held on the first Tuesday of each month at 8:00 am. Mark your calendars – there is always something new to hear or someone new to meet!
