Production Guide Rules and Regulations

1. Deadline:
  Applications for the ONLINE version of the Production Guide will be accepted year-round.

2. Individual Listing:
  An individual must be an independent contractor (freelancer), and not a full time employee of a company whose primary business is in the film, television, digital media, or recording industry for which that person provides labor in the capacity of the requested listing (e.g. a camera operator for a production company cannot list as an independent camera operator).
  The applicant's address must be in one of Jacksonville's ten county regions: Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Clay, Columbia, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, Putnam, and St. Johns counties. No exceptions will be made for those willing to work as locals. An individual's contact information (i.e. address and phone) cannot be the same as a company's contact information.
  No independent contractor can work under a fictitious or corporate name.
  For new applicants, two call sheets (each from a different job) OR a resume and two verifiable references from established industry professionals who can verify capabilities for each category must be submitted with the application. For listings in multiple, unrelated categories, call sheets or references must be provided to support experience in each job. Any experience in an academic environment (i.e. work on student films) does not qualify as professional experience.
  Individuals will be listed alphabetically by last name in respective categories.

3. Company Listing:
  Must have a business address in one of Jacksonville's ten county regions: Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Clay, Columbia, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, Putnam, and St. Johns counties.
  A copy of a current, valid occupational (or equivalent document required by the County of the applicant's address) is required for corporations, S Corporations, LLCs, etc., or for entities DBA fictitious names. New listings must be accompanied by a copy of the occupational license or document.
  Any additional business information that helps qualify your company may be submitted with the application.
  Companies will be listed alphabetically by actual business name.

4. Listing in TWO categories (whether individual or company) is FREE. Each listing will include contact information and up to 25 words for descriptions of services or "credits". Union affiliation and license number, where applicable, will not be included in the word count.

5. Additional or enhanced listings are available for purchase ($50.00 each):
  Additional Listings - Listings in more than two free individual or company listings.
  Enhanced Listings - Bold typed and box around entire listing printed in the guide.
  Extended Listings - 50 words maximum for descriptions, instead of 25 words.
  Fees for additional/enhanced listings can be paid through check or money order and made payable to:
   Jacksonville Film and Television Office
   Attn: Production Guide
   1 West Adams St., Suite 200
   Jacksonville, FL 32202

  No payments will be deposited until the applicant has been accepted into the production guide. Payments will be refunded in full, when applicable, if the applicant's listing is deemed ineligible.

6. Applications must be typed or printed legibly. Incomplete applications will not be processed. Applications received without appropriate attachments or fees will not be processed. All applications will be reviewed for approval by the Production Guide Review Committee on a quarterly basis. The printed production guide is distributed annually and the online guide is updated throughout the year.
