Filming/Photography at the M Resort Spa Casino
Filming and photography at the M Resort Spa Casino are welcomed. Filming/ photography requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Each filming and/or photography request is reviewed against the M Resort’s marketing goals. Requests are reviewed to determine whether they best represent the M Resort and its brand. Also, requests are reviewed to determine the reach, audience and markets that the opportunity will provide.
The M Resort asks that you submit your request at least two weeks before filming/ photography is to commence.

Filming/ Photography Location Agreement:
The M Resort will provide a filming/ photography location agreement to the person or production submitting the request. It is the only location agreement that the M Resort Legal Department will recognize.
The location agreement must be signed before filming/ photography can take place on M Resort’s property. The M Resort will provide the person/ production with a counter-signed copy of the agreement.
Filming/ Photography Insurance:
The M Resort requires that persons or productions participating in filming/ photography on M Resort’s property provide a certificate of insurance for at least $1 million (U.S.). The certificate of insurance must also list the M Resort as additionally insured. The certificate of insurance must also show proof of workers’ compensation for all personnel participating in the filming/ photography.
The certificate of insurance must be issued by an insurance carrier chartered in the United States.
In addition, the M Resort will provide a sample insurance certificate with legal language that must appear on the certificate provided to the M Resort.
If the person or production cannot provide a certificate of insurance that fulfills the requirements, a waiver of liability may be requested from the M Resort. Waivers are granted on a case-by-case basis.
Some film/ photography opportunities require that the M Resort close off portions of the property so that filming/ photography can take place. These disruptions inconvenience guests and can result in lost revenue. As a result, in some cases site fees will be charged.
Also, some film/ photography opportunities require M Resort personnel to be present. In these cases the person or production will be charged for these services. All services will be negotiated before filming / photography takes place.
