After all the controversy surrounding Steven Binko's The Escape. We thought it might be interesting to dig a little deeper into this mess. We contacted a friend over at the Screen Actors Guild or SAG for the insiders, and asked a few questions, and this is what we found out. In order to produce a film and film outside a private residence and be legal, the producers must obtain the following.
Filming Permits for the city and county they are filming in.
Certificate of Insurance for Public Liability Insurance in an amount not less than $1,000,000 combined single limit for bodily injury and property damage is required.
Permits from the local Fire Department.
Permits from the local Police Department.
Permits for people living in a nonresidential building.
Just the filming permits alone could cost, tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the city and state you are filming in and what is required by law.
Now as shady as the Bink's has been so far, with the rigging of the polls and "needing certain parts to come out certain way's," We really doubt the Binks has done any of this, and would not be surprised if production was shut down.
Maybe the Bink's should not have bought all the personal stuff he did like cologne, shirts, storage sticks for his cell phone and his camera and used those funds in a better way.source;Miami-Dade County Film & Entertainment Advisory Boardsource;Miami-Dade County Film & Entertainment Advisory Board
