Make Your Home a Star

Every day films, TV shows, commercials, music videos and other productions film on location in private homes, apartments and businesses. When a production uses a private location, the arrangement is a private negotiation that takes place between the owners and the production, and the amount of money paid by a production to a home or business owner varies dramatically. The Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting is not involved in these negotiations.
