This form must be submitted AT LEAST two week prior to the start of the project.

Museum staff members will meet or communicate with the requestor to discuss the project. The potential danger to works of art or people, scheduling conflicts, other events and workload that day, availability of staff to supervise the shoot, benefit to MOCA BANGKOK, additional security costs, previous contact with the applicant, and any special circumstances will all be taken under consideration.

If approved, an appropriate fee will be determined based on the number of hours, the time during the day, special effort in moving works, and other considerations. Approval or rejection of the project will be communicated to the requestor. If approved, the determined fee will also be communicated at this time and must be pre-paid.
