Results for - Film Location Scouts

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.

No! If you do let him in your house, hide your valuables as you are about to be cased!
