Location Scout Resource: Sample Location Contracts


Location Scout Resource: Location Contracts for Location Scouts, Production and Homeowners

– Attached are two (2) boilerplates of the location contracts we use so there is a written agreement between us, production and property owners when a deal has been negotiated to use a property as a filming location for a film, photo or video shoot.

  1. is a long form
  2. – the one that has been around here some time now, but often seems intimidating and “overkill” for “everyday” use…

  3. is a shorter form
  4. – less detailed but seems to-the-point for most everyday use.

  5. Please read each document you plan to use carefully and edit the parts specific to *you* (and the location property owner)
