30 Mile Radius

THE TMZ

The LMU 30-mile radii are used to determine if the length of your production day is affected by your location. SFTV recognizes two distinct 30 mile radii, the Los Angeles Studio Zone which is centered at the intersection of La Cienega and Beverly, and the SFTV 30 Mile Radius which extends 30 miles in all directions from the LMU Westchester campus. When you submit your location to Production Administration you must state which zone you shooting in. You may pick one zone only for each production weekend.

Filming within either of SFTV’s designated 30 mile zones allows you to have a full production day without subtracting hours for commuting or to lodge your cast and crew overnight. The following map illustrates the SFTV 30 Mile Radius.

Filming outside either of the recognized 30 Mile Zones means your production day will be abbreviated depending how far your set is outside the zone. For example, if your location is 30 minutes outside the 30 mile radius you production day is shortened by two hours. If you are significantly outside the 30 mile radius Production Administration may require you to lodge your cast and crew overnight between shooting days.
