Requests from members of the press to visit any part of the Lab should be directed to the Lab's Communications group at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Requests for photo or video shoots throughout the Lab should also be directed to email@example.com.
Filming at MIT is by permission only. Filming at the Media Lab can take place during normal business hours, Monday-Friday, with advance clearance from the Media Lab's communications office. Signed MIT release forms and insurance verification are typically required before filming begins. MIT and Media Lab researchers are only authorized to sign MIT filming release forms, not the individual forms of production companies, networks, or organizations.
To ensure that press visits are minimally disruptive to the other researchers, a member of the Communications group will typically accompany interviewers to their destination in the Lab. In the case of photo shoots, a staff member will escort the crew throughout the visit; this helps to protect the intellectual property of the other research groups within the Lab, as well as minimize disruption.
Visitors to the MIT Media Lab must comply with all current MIT COVID-19 policies. See full detail at now.mit.edu/policies/campus-access-and-visitors.
These requirements are in addition to the normal requirements for press visits detailed above; please continue to direct all requests for press visits and photo or video shoots to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All requests for slides, digital photos, or videos should be directed to email@example.com.
