SHOOTING GUIDELINES FOR THE WORLD CUP COFFEE & TEA SHOP

When shooting World Cup Coffee & Tea in the Student Center (Building 6), please set up the shot OUTSIDE of the shop in the public walkway. You may shoot into the shop though but please avoid capturing the faces of the student employees. Some of the student employees are not comfortable being photographed.

SHOOTING GUIDELINES FOR THE CAFE

You may shoot in the cafe to capture the salad bar, refrigerators, drink counter, or menus. If you want to shoot one of the employees at the cafe cash register, please permission first. If they say no, move on.

GENERAL SHOOTING GUIDELINES

  • Ask permission first if you want to film students. If they say no, move on.
  • Use slow panning or tilting shots when filming crowds of people.
