City of Miami Beach Production Update.

Many have heard that the City of Miami Beach is increasing meter, garage and lot rates in areas of the City.  While there is a rise in these fees, we have been able to lock in the $10 per day rental rate for film and print productions for meters and some garages.  Other garages already have larger daily rates.  Please note that as of December 10, the Preferred lot (P-lot) next to the Convention Center will no longer be an available option for base camp or crew parking.  This lot will be the construction lot of the three year Convention Center rebuild and then convert into greenspace. Remember we still offer base camp use of our hardpack sand and productions which demonstrate 100 Miami Beach room nights or more can receive significant incentive discounts towards this use.

Also, starting December 15, the off-duty Miami Beach Police hourly rate will go up to $50 for officers, $55 for sergeants, $58 for Lieutenants and $61 for Captains.  If your production requires a police coordinator, this is now charged at the $50 hourly rate for coordination hours. There still is a four hour minimum and cancellations must be made no less than 24 hours in advance or pay the four hour minimum as a penalty. Holidays will be double time.  The $10 per hour administration fee is still waived as an incentive to the film and print industries.

New Police Rates effective 12/15/2015

Graduates from local colleges and universities that offer film and entertainment programs are encouraged to participate, but anyone 18 years and older may sign up. PAs must be available full-time and need to have their own vehicle.

The Production Assistant Program will available beginning on October 5, 2015. Participants can may fill out the PA sign-up form online.  Once the form is completed, the information is entered into a database and made available to production companies looking to hire production assistants. However, there is no guarantee of employment.

This initiative is an effort to keep young talent in Miami-Dade County and grow the production base in the film and entertainment industry. To see what is going on locally in the film & entertainment industry check out FilMiami.
