Studio Briefing reports that independent filmmakers are strongly opposed to proposed regulations drafted by the New York Mayor’s Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting that would require a permit and proof of liability insurance for any type of filming or photography at a single site for 30 minutes or more.

As per the regulations, five or more people using a tripod for more than 10 minutes would also require the permit and insurance (including families making home videos).

Civil libertarians, film journalists and tourists have joined the protest.
