Could Your Home Be Used For A Movie Or TV Commercial?
If your home
is chosen for a movie or TV commercial setting, the payoff can be
much larger than cash fees of $1,000 to $15,000 a day. It all
depends on a film�s budget, the length of shoot, and the owner�s
have included everything from a fresh coat of paint outside or
inside to an overhaul of the landscaping to a new deck added (with
your permission). Film companies try to leave a home in the same
condition as they found it�or better.
To get a leg
up on the competition list your home with your local film
commission, and ask for a list of location agencies. (Agencies act
as agents for your house, aggressively promoting it in exchange for
taking a cut of 10% to 30% from the shooting fee.)
