No more sneaking around snapping NYC subway pics!
Sorry for the long blog hiatus. I just got back from NYC, where shooters are rejoicing now that the proposed NYC subway photography/filming ban is dead (it had been proposed because of terrorist concerns).
Here in Hawaii, permission to shoot on our public transportation, The Bus on Oahu or Hele-On Bus on the Big Island, is granted on a case-by-case basis. Just contact Honolulu Film Commissioner Walea Constantinau, 808-527-6108, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Big Island Film Commissioner Marilyn Killeri, 808-326-2663, email@example.com.
While shooting on public transportation here is generally allowed, there are several places where filming and photography are forbidden in most if not all cases. These places are: the Heiau in Haena on Kauai, and Hanauma Bay, Iolani Palace and grounds, the Royal Mausoleum, and Washington Place on Oahu.
