FAQ

We’ve collated a list of frequently asked questions to give you more information, from the initial registration right through to your property or business being selected for a shoot to the filming process itself. There’s information on security of images and registration information, how best to take photographs of your property and the legal process surrounding the hire of your property or business for filming.

If you have a question that’s not included, please don’t hesitate to give the team a call and we’ll be happy to help (0113 204 5935).

1. How much can I earn from hiring out my property or business?

This depends entirely on the production and the extent of the filming to be done and vary from hundreds to thousands of pounds per day. Stills photography shoots will not earn you as much but are far less disruptive than film or TV filming.

We get paid when you do and we do everything in our power to get you as many shoots as possible

2. What can I expect from UK Locations?

Our location partners are at the heart of what we do and we pride ourselves on the first-class service we give. On your behalf we will:

  • Professionally photograph your location
  • Promote and market your property
  • Vet potential hirers
  • Provide you with shoot enquiries
  • Field all communication and give you only the final details
  • Arrange viewings (this is also known as a recce)
  • Negotiate the best hire fee
  • Handle the legal contract and insurance
  • Manage any post-shoot work on your behalf
3. Will my personal information be secure?

Yes. No personal information is available or seen by anyone but the UK Locations team. The location library will only display a barcode ID for your property and any personal information is secured offline.

We also adhere to the Data Protection Act guidelines

4. What type of photographs should I take? What format do they need to be in?

It’s really important to get the most clear and relevant images of your property possible, so we can make a quick decision if we are the right Location Partner for you.

GETTING THE BEST IMAGE – KEY POINTS TO FOLLOW

  • Take the photos on your phone
  • The images need to be landscape (turn your phone horizontally when taking the photo)
  • Take 10 photos only – large or open-plan rooms only. Please include the kitchen, living room and other large reception rooms. Also, include one of the front and back of the property (including garden if relevant)
  • Take photos in natural light (during the day)
  • No cars, people or animals in the photos
  • No close-up shots
  • Stand as far back as you can to photograph as much of the room as possible
  • Take at least 2 photos from each corner of the room
  • It’s very important to photograph your property looking clean, tidy and presentable
  • If you have a floor plan of your property, please send it to us, as this is a huge help to our clients when they’re looking at prospective locations to film or shoot
5. What happens when a client comes to visit my property to see if it’s suitable for their shoot?

These visits are called ‘recces’ and usually the first recce will be the Director, Designer, Producer and Location Manager. They will look at the property and make brief notes as to its suitability and may take interior/exterior photos for reference.

6. What happens after the first recce? What are the next steps to filming?

The client may be looking at a number of different locations, so it can take them from a day to a week to make a final decision on which property to use for their project. We will get in touch with you as soon as possible to let you know if they’d like to use your property, or not, on this occasion.

UK Locations will agree the best possible fee for the use of your property and confirm that you’re happy with the terms and conditions of the use of your property. We’d then issue a contract between yourself and the client wishing to use your property. UK Locations will ensure that the client has valid Public Liability Insurance.  We will issue a copy of our terms and conditions for you and also for clients wishing to hire locations at this stage.

Once we’re happy that the location hire contract and insurance are in place a filming itinerary will be arranged. The film crew may need to do another recce with more of their team, including cameramen and lighting technicians. You’ll have a full itinerary of when the crew may need access to your property.

7. What should I do on the day of filming?

The film crew will have an early start on the day and the technicians will expect to be able to work in your property or business with ease. It is vital the areas being used for filming are clean, tidy and not cluttered. The crew will expect to be able to work in the property uninterrupted and will require the telephone to be unplugged and no unnecessary interference or noise.

8. What happens if something gets accidentally damaged?

The legal contract is in place to cover you and the client for every eventuality. The contract stipulates that your property will be returned to how it was before filming or photography and should anything get damaged it will be repaired to your satisfaction or replaced. Often with filming the crew will hire the property for the day after filming is completed to reinstate the property.

It is our role as your Location Partner to manage this process, so that it does not take your time up.

9. When will I get paid?

We pay you in 30 days even if we haven’t been paid. This is our commitment to you. No other location agency does this!
