CYC welcomes film shoots for television shows, films, and print ads.
All filming requests go through the General Manager, Michele Underwood, for filming on the docks, the Club property or in the Club house. The Club is closed for business on Mondays and Tuesdays and can therefore accommodate large production teams. Filming on Wednesday through Friday is dependent on the size of the production and the activity level of the Club on that day. Rates include parking for crew, trailers and equipment (Monday and Tuesday only, you must use county parking Wednesday through Friday), and an area for catering services and restrooms on the docks.
Features of CYC include a restaurant with spectacular marina views of the main channel and a beautiful wooden bar in the members bar. We have a 90 foot guest dock available if you want to bring a boat into the anchorage for filming. A front lawn area overlooks Sail and Power boats in the marina as does the large outdoor pool. There are docks and gangways suitable for movement through the anchorage.
Standard Agreement fees are determined by the extent of the filming areas and length of time prep, filming and breakdown. A $40 per hour fee is charged for a CYC employee liaison that will be here through your contract to assist you with the Club facilities. Some members are willing to charter their boats for film shoots, but arrangements are made directly with the owner via the Dock Master. Filming on the docks requires a LA County life guard be present. For indoor restaurant shots, furniture, linen, dishes, cutlery and glassware are available for rental. All filming permits must be completed prior to filming. Insurance coverage stipulations are included in the contract.
There is no filming permitted without a license agreement between the Club and the production company.
