Any request for filming in or around water must go through the production approval process. Working in or near water requires planning and extension safety precautions. Showers, baths, pools, ponds, lakes, streams, rivers, and the ocean all constitute hazardous shooting situations.

  • If any cast or crew are going into any body of water, a lifeguard must be present. If cast/crew are in water above their knees, lifeguards must be in the water just off camera.

  • Students must provide aqua socks, towels, bathrobes, and blankets for all those who enter the water.

  • Water must be at least 72 degrees or the performer must be in a wetsuit.

  • Assessment of any aquatic life must be reported to production operations for review.

  • A prearranged safety word or gesture must be assigned to stop filming and call help for the cast/crew.

  • No equipment may go in or near the water without prior approval.
