What happens when you get inquiries?
Once you have listed your location on FLW, there are four ways a potential production member will contact you.
Email Form: Your location listing provides you with an online form that allows scouts to email you via the web site (Be sure that we are on your safe list and double check your junk folders from time to time to be sure no inquiries are missed.)
Telephone: A production scout may telephone you. If you provide a telephone number, and we highly recommend you do, you allow potential production and event renters to contact you fast.
Direct Email: Location scouts may email you directly; If you want to display your email address publicly, you are able to add that to the end of your property description.
Call the Office: Production company will call us for help specific location needs. We do help with suggestions, so important to let us know how you are doing and what productions you have hosted so we to know your property offerings.
- All negotiations for the rental cost and so forth is strictly between the owner and production company. No fees are collected, no arrangements on behalf of production is conducted by EFM.

If you have further questions about offering your home, business or property on the site, please contact us.
How to get your property listed as a film location rental.
We receive a large number of owners sending us emails daily about interest in renting out their home or business as a film location rental. While we appreciate the emails, our response is always the same. If you want to have your property considered as a film, photography, event or rental for cast and crew, you need to list your location details on the web site location database.
FilmLocationsWanted.com has a database of film locations available worldwide and owners are invited to list their property details and photos on the web site so production personnel can review for their projects.
Production and location scouts will read the details and view the photos of your location. If the property fits their requirements they will contact you, the owner directly with questions, more information, the rate you will charge and/or set up an appointment to see the location.
So while we love to see all the unique location offerings coming to us via email directly, we cannot offer your location unless it is listed on the web site. And ANY type of location can be listed. You never know what location type is needed.
To list your property for consideration, we have a number of pages on how to set up a profile, a faq page and a blog.
If you are seriously interested in making money with your property please read those pages and create a great location rental profile that attract production.
If you need assistance or have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
See you in the movies!
Owners of location rental properties! Be SURE you check your email and make sure you have FilmLocationsWanted on your email safe list.
Many scouts and production personnel use our web site email form to inquire about your property after reviewing your location profile on the web site. If you don’t have us on your safe list, you could be missing out on production rental requests.
One suggestion to make sure you are getting the emails is to log on to your profile and send a test inquiry email directly from your location profile using your listed email address you set up on the site.
This will insure you are getting them. REMEMBER, production personnel send you an inquiry that includes their questions and contact information.
Secondly, remember, scouts and production personnel are under time constraints and are actively seeking to acquire a location for their project as soon as possible and to get considered, respond to them ASAP before they find someone else to host the project.
If you have any questions, contact us.
