Thank you for your interest in listing your property with our film & TV location database. Please read through this entire page before submitting photographs.
If you would like your Georgia home, business or property considered, please send digital photos by using our location submission form. We will review your photos and, if approved, your property will be added to our location photo database.
All locations are placed in a secure, password-protected database (Reel-Scout) and sent to our clients upon request. Submitted locations are not accessible by the general public and can only be changed by staff once submitted.
Submitted locations may not be accepted if they do not meet the guidelines below:
• 144-150 dpi
• File size between 200KB – 1 MB
• JPEG compression = 7 good quality
• 1280 X 1024 resolution
• Physical photo size: 8.5″ X 11″
Once you have gathered your photos, please submit them using our Photo Submission Form.
|+ Q: How will I know my location has been received?|
|A: You will receive an automated e-mail when your location has been received. Due to the heavy volume of locations we receive, we are unable to respond to each entry. You are welcome to check on its status by contacting our staff. Locations are generally approved unless they do not meet the guidelines above.|
|+ Q: How long until I hear from a production company?|
|A: It depends. We host hundreds of productions each year, with a wide range of location needs, and varying production schedules. It is possible to hear from a production the next day or the next year. We send your photos to producers in a timely manner and then it depends on their schedule and needs.|
|+ Q: How much should I charge someone to shoot on my property?|
|A: For the most part, there is no set rate. Location fees vary depending on the location budget of the show, scene requirements, impact on the property and other factors. Representatives of the production company will make an offer if the location is of interest.|
|+ Q: I received a request from a student film with limited or no money for locations. Should I work with this student?|
|A: Our office encourages the professional development of new Georgia filmmakers. Many film students or independent filmmakers have limited resources to produce their projects. We encourage you to consider these location requests, within reason. But if you will not consider such projects, make a note of this in the “usage restriction” field.|
|+ Q: How is liability insurance handled?|
|A: Most film/TV productions carry substantial liability insurance policies to film on your property. This will be addressed in your location agreement. For low-budget student or independent films, you can ask the filmmaker (or the school) if they carry liability insurance. A sample location agreement can be found here.|
|+ Q: I cannot use the photo submission form. Is there another way to submit photos?|
|A: You can mail a flash drive or CD to our office address. Or you can use a free file transfer service like Dropbox.com. E-mail is generally discouraged. Please include all information required on the location submission form (property name, street address, point of contact, etc.)|
|+ Q: How can I update my listing with new photos?|
|A: Locations cannot be accessed by the general public once submitted. If you want to send additional photos, please submit them directly to our office as described above and include the original name of the location.|
|+ Q: How can I verify that a location request is legitimate?|
|A: You are welcome to call our office to verify any requests you receive.|
