Location Scout Agreement

Published by at 4:43 pm under Uncategorized

Once a place is booked, there is little reason why filming does not start as planned. At this stage, many hours of paid production work and large sums of money have been invested in the site chosen for location and/or permits. A change in creative concept at this stage or a breakdown of any kind (for example. B the termination of property owners) is potentially costly and legal action is a possible consequence. Even if production does not present itself with respect to their activities, the intended use of the site, damage to the property or caused by negligence other problems for the owner of the land, the owner of the property can remedy one of the many forms available, including lawsuits. A special thank you goes to Alex Kolodkin of SetScouter for passing on his site-insights and expertise with me for this blog. Location services and other site department agents (see below) who work under the control of the leasing manager generally strive to provide as many potentially useful/viable ideas and/or options as possible for production verification; often the assistant director, production manager and later the director or even the executive producer in the case of narrative cinema. It is always advisable to have a lawyer write their location agreements, as they are legal documents. However, if this goes beyond your budget, check out our model for site sharing agreements.

To be a faster signature, fill out as much information as possible in the site sharing form before sending (or seeing) the site owner. Once the agreements have been fully executed, make sure site owners receive a copy. However, remember that the owner of the site gives you a place to shoot – a little extra attention and a little personal time can go a long way to secure the location and ensure a smooth experience on the board. Each site has its own logistical considerations. Here are some of the most common questions you need to ask yourself: Do much of the actual research, footwork and photography to document location possibilities. Often, the hiring manager himself gets drunk scouting, just like the Assistant Location Manager. Once the building owner agrees, you should get it in writing, only in case they change their mind. A form for the release of sites is a prerequisite before walking on their land with any equipment, and it protects both parties.
