Professional film production companies will pay to rent homes, businesses, and other locations. The amount paid for use of property varies depending on the type of shoot (studio feature film, independent feature film, commercial, still shoot), the size of the productions budget, how many hours and days they’d be on the property, how many people will be on the property and whether or not the property owners are supplying anything else other than the site, for instance, electricity. 

If ever approached by a production company about filming at a property you own, please contact us at We will be able to verify the legitimacy of the production and advise you, if needed, on typical day rates for your specific property.
