rent your home
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.
Professional photos are not necessary to list a location rental profile or for props. However, it is important to present your property with clear photos showing how as it looks currently.
When presenting photos, a good overview of the property and it’s rooms give a location scout a good overview if your location is what they need for the project.
Location rental photo tips:
Show photos of the front of your home, business or property
Show photos showing your backyard and or views from the property.
Show photos of the kitchen, bathroom, living room, office, entry way, and additional rooms and areas available.
When taking photos stand back and get as much of the room in the shot. This gives the location scout an idea of how large the room is, if it has other rooms attached, exits, terraces to show the layout of the room(s).
Display blurry photos on your profile
Display dark photos that are difficult to see the room(s)
Display people in your photos
Display closeups of art work and statues
Display tiny pictures on your profile that are difficult to see
Display photos that are outdated and no longer applicable to your property
When location scouts or production personnel are seeking a film, tv, photography or event location it may be for a portion of your home or business, you never know what they may need. So a good overview of photos and detailed description of the property is essential to present all the production possibilities.
Scouts may be seeking just the front of your home, the backyard, the kitchen, family room, bedrooms, offices, attics, abandoned buildings and more. To get the most out of your property, show it and describe it as detailed as possible on your profile listing.
We get inquiries for the entire home or business to just one or more rooms. Inquires include only a kitchen for a cooking show, a living room, dining room for a scene, to a basement or family room. Or businesses such as offices, medical facilities, restaurants and much more.
Professional photos are not necessary, just lit well, shots of the entire room(s) to include adjoining rooms and exits as well as the exterior back and front.
Our staff is available to help you get the most out of your profile, if you need assistance or have any questions, feel free to contact us.
