1,903 voters participated in this survey
I got an unsolicited letter the other day stating that a film location scout saw my house and thought it would be great for a feature film. The scout would like to take photos of both the inside and outside. Compensation would be provided if my house is selected. The project is legit, the scouts name checks out that he's working on the project. However, I found it all on the internet and if I can find it, a thief can find it as well and I fear it could be a great way to case a house. I've contacted the studio and it seems legit, however it's just on a normal sheet of paper and doesn't really 'feel' right. Despite this I am seriously considering it.
1. Have you ever received a notice similar to this?
2. Would you let a film crew use your house for a movie/commercial/TV show?
Depends on how much money I would get
3. What other perks would you expect if your place was used?
Meet the cast and crew. A list and B list celebs alike.
Walk the red carpet at the premiere.
Free tickets to the movie with my friends and family.
I would not allow filming to happen at my home.
4. What amount of money would you expect per day for this sort of inconvenience if you were to do it?
Less than $100 USD - I would love to brag my house was used in a movie.
I would never allow this. No amount of money would make me do this.
5. If you were me would you call the scout?
Yes! It's a neat chance to meet celebrities, maybe.
No! If you do let him in your house, hide your valuables as you are about to be cased!
