Frequently Asked Questions

How do I determine if my property would be a good shooting location?

Give us a call! If you believe you own a property that would be good for filming, we will send our scout team over to take a look. Part of our responsibilities include properly vetting all locations to assure that they are film appropriate and for what types of productions they would serve as good locations.

What is the pricing for your services?

We charge a percentage of all signed license agreements. We do not charge any fees upfront.

Who handles the location contract?

Backlot will facilitate all contracts between a property owner and production. If you have legal representation, we will work with them to discuss industry standards and expectations. If you don’t have representation, we can offer that service via a third party firm as a pass-through cost.

Who from the property needs to be on site during filming?

Backlot provides an experienced site representative for every production. Generally, no additional staffing is required while the production is on site. If the property requires additional staffing (such as engineer, security, etc.), we will work with your team to identify those costs and assure that they are recognized and approved as a pass through to production during the contract phase.
