Emory Film Management

In the summer of 2014, the Business Practice Improvement team was asked to manage external filming requests for the University.

With Georgia quickly becoming a destination for television and movie production, Emory University has experienced a rapidly growing demand for the use of its campus as a filming location.

BPI was charged with creating an efficient process to streamline film requests and operations taking place on campus. In the spring of 2015, BPI launched a new Filming Management website ( alongside an improved intake process.

In close collaboration with stakeholders across the University, BPI has transformed the management of production requests, while fostering this growing Georgia industry. BPI has also prioritized student participation and engagement with productions on campus, and facilitated student job shadowing, class speakers, panels of industry experts, and visits to local production studios.

BPI continues to manage daily film operations, while seeking to continuously improve the filming experience for Emory and the film community. For more information on film management at Emory, please contact Film Management at 404-727-3478.
