Filming/Photo Shoots Information

  • The Conejo Valley Unified School District consists of 33 film-friendly sites which are located within the 30-mile film zone (TMZ) just west of Los Angeles.

    We are a self-permitting film-friendly entity that does not require the standard city or county filming permit. All permits for production are issued directly by our office, saving you the time and expense of a standard film permitting experience. We maintain confidentiality to protect your talent and team's identity before and after the shoot. 

    We are conveniently located in Thousand Oaks, Newbury Park, and Westlake Village within Ventura County. Our team is experienced with managing large-scale film productions, television shows, commercials, and still photography. Having worked with almost every major studio and production company in Los Angeles, we specialize in both union and non-union productions for school site locations. 

    Feel free to reach out to us to set up a scout for your next project of any size, and for more information on using any one of our 33 sites, please contact David Riccardi, District Director, Maintenance & Operations, via email or call (805) 498-4557 ext. 6571, or Sue Blake, Administrative Assistant, via email or call (805)498-4557 ext. 6570.
