We absolutely loved spending the day with our team here. We wanted to get out of the office and have our meeting in a more relaxed environment, and this home was perfect. Great communication with Nara and her mother and the booking was easy flexible. The home is absolutely gorgeous with stunning views. Everyone enjoyed the space and we had a great day! Thank you for opening your home up to us for the day 😊

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Jenny on this shoot! She was extremely helpful, communicative, and accommodating. She even offered us cold drinks from her home! The house had everything we needed and more and I would certainly recommend using this home for any upcoming shoots, I know we'll be back!

What to know when renting out your space for film shoots

"Art has its consequences!" Christopher Doyle told the British Film Institute during a 2019 interview. The Australian cinematographer recounted what happened as the crew for "Chungking Express"—now a must-watch film in Hong Kong New Wave—was shooting in his flat while he still lived there. "There was a scene where we flooded the place. Then we left. I guess I went on to another film. Two or three months later, I came back and the people downstairs were going to sue us. We're on the third floor and it flooded through every apartment downstairs."

While not every shoot will include such drastic consequences, it is a cautionary tale in the world of movie-making: The unexpected happens, and property owners who are looking to make additional income by renting their spaces need to also be aware of the cons before diving in.

On the other hand, your home could be the next silver screen icon, such as the De Vere House, now the second-most photographed doorway in the U.K. behind 10 Downing Street, where the British prime minister resides. The home has been immortalized for its role as Godric's Hollow, where Harry Potter's parents lived while he was still a baby.

For the most part, it seemed as if the owners had a front-row seat to movie magic in the making. "The crew arrived without actors and filmed both the front and the back in the height of summer," owner Tony Ranzetta told the Telegraph in 2012. "They then used parts of the house like pieces of a massive three-dimensional jigsaw, cutting and pasting them to form the streets of Godric's Hollow."

Whether you own a small studio or period-piece home, listing your space can be a great way to achieve that additional revenue stream—but one that comes with trial and error or possible risks.

Ever wonder what it takes to be a host? Giggster compiled a list of pointers for renting out your space for film shoots to guarantee a successful experience, using tips from property owners and various sources.

Know the value of your listing

Make sure to do some market research. How much you'll earn from renting out your property will be based on multiple factors: your home's location, its appearance and features, and the production company's budget. Most websites that aggregate film locations for rent also advertise their hourly rates, making it easy to compare a venue's offerings with yours.

The average homeowner on Giggster earned $2,027 per booking in 2019. Homes that have hosted at least one shoot earned an average of $3,945. These prices are only a barometer, and as a host, you have the freedom to discount your price or increase your rate based on the shoot.

You can also use an adaptive pricing scale to account for different production budgets and crew sizes. Photo shoots and video shoots are very different and require different fee additions.

Offer additional services to maximize your earnings

Some hosts can get an edge over potential clients by offering add-ons like water, ice, package delivery, and the use of the house indoors or outdoors—but don't forget to reflect that when setting your price.

Each film shoot is a unique situation, from feature films with a cast and crew of more than 80 people to filming a weekly series or a commercial. Make sure your listing description and contract state that guests may be charged additional fees associated with their use of a space or various services.

Negotiate a price that factors in the time required to prepare and clean up the shoot. In the case that you allow for it, follow the industry standard around charging productions roughly half the price of a normal film day when a shoot goes over its allotted time.

Posting great photos pays off

When it comes to listing your space, great photos matter. Taking great photography of your space will ensure bookings. This is your opportunity to show off the natural lighting in your house, various rooms, interior decor, and features such as pools, gardens, and the backyard.

In addition to the look of your home, practical details are just as important. According to the Los Angeles Times, ​​filmmakers are looking for a location with enough space for their crew and equipment—something else worth highlighting in your photo gallery.

Vet potential renters

Dani O'Dell, owner of a ranch-style production house in Tustin, California, advises that hosts vet all potential inquiries before accepting their bid. "There have definitely been some companies and projects that would not have worked well at my home. You have to think of neighbors, disruption to your daily life, and how they will conduct themselves in your home."

O'Dell suggests looking up the inquiring company's website and even social media platforms. "With this simple step, you can learn a lot about the standard of care they deliver with their work."

She also advises property owners not to be afraid to ask questions and really take the time to see whether this particular project is a good fit before rushing in.

Set house rules

Seasoned hosts will all attest to the importance of setting one's boundaries from the get-go. Experts say the listing is a great place to be overly descriptive and to be sure that you are clear on what your house rules are with filmmakers.

While working on the stipulations for shooting at a 150-year-old Philadelphia property, Alex Capozzolo, co-founder of Brotherly Love Real Estate, told Apartment Therapy that his client was able to include additional rules that protected their space. They restricted the number of film crew, added requirements for damage insurance, and included a clause that no changes be made to the interior or exterior of the house.

O'Dell said the recurring advice she was given before listing her property was to "not be soft" if asked for extra time. "I could not understand why this came up in so many conversations before I began listing my home—then it happened to me several times. People with tight budgets will try to squeeze in extra time."

An 11 p.m. wrap-up time could easily turn into midnight—or worse, as late as 2 a.m.—because film crews typically need to clean up after a shoot as well. "Just remember to stick to your hard boundaries if you need to," O'Dell advised.

About Video Shoots

From production shoots that are aimed at consumers from all over the world to homemade videos that are full of inside jokes and can be enjoyed by family and friends, video shoots are a central part of our lives and can impact everyone who sees the final product.

Video shoots require meticulous planning and organization to ensure that everything occurs without a hitch. A wide variety of options need to be considered, like renting out various filming equipment, getting all sorts of props, and considering the current trends and fashions to make sure that your upcoming video shoot will draw many viewers.

Knowing the target audience can help you choose a location that will both suit the theme of your upcoming video shoot as well as have adequate features and amenities that can help enhance your video shoot.

The Best Video Shoot Spaces

Having a solid theme in mind can help direct your attention to locations that fit the bill. Whether you have a location set in mind or are browsing for additional options, having many potential locations in mind can help you get more creative in choosing a video shoot venue.

  • Film and Photo Studios
    A classic when it comes to video shoot sites, film and photo studios have all the amenities and features you need centralized in one location. These locations allow the producer to get creative as virtually every aspect of the shoot can be controlled, from the lighting in the area to the props and backgrounds, thanks to the features like green screens, blackout curtains, and lighting rigs. Consider renting out an amazing fully lit white cyc studio for your next video shoot.

  • Outdoor Locations
    An outdoor location can mean anything from smaller gardens within estates to wide-open spaces that can be found on farms and ranches. Depending on your upcoming video shoot outdoor locations may need to be considered, especially when you’re operating larger filming equipment. It’s important to consider each area’s capacity and restrictions before finalizing your decision to book an outdoor video shoot setting.

  • Houses and Estates
    These locations can be a great video shoot space as it can help ease your target audience with a location that they might be familiar with. Houses provide you with many different props to use and can help serve as a location for lifestyle shoots or a setting for an upcoming movie. Whatever your purpose is for choosing a house or estate, finding one that fits the theme of your video shoot is vital as it can help you connect to viewers better.

  • Restaurants
    Restaurants can help provide an ambiance that can improve your video shoot. Arrangements can be made with the owners to either buy out the area for the duration of your shoot or to rent out specific areas while the restaurant resumes business to allow for a more natural setting. Consider a valley restaurant for your next video shoot venue.

What to Look for in Video Shoot Spaces

Whether you’re an amateur film producer or a long-time veteran in the industry, considering certain factors before finalizing your decision on a video shoot location is vital as it can make the process of filming as well as editing much easier.

  • Capacity
    Knowing what kind of video shoot you plan on hosting can filter out locations that can’t fit your crew and filming equipment. For larger-scale video shoots that involve many people, locations such as warehouses and outdoor locations can ensure that everyone is not cramped up in a small and constricted space.

  • Safety
    Video shoots are often shot with high-end filming equipment. Ensuring you rent out an area that can be considered secure can ease your worries of a crime occurring instead of booking a location that may otherwise put your equipment and crew members at risk.

  • Accessibility
    Having a location that has many exits and access doors can improve your shoot. Having many ways to enter your video shoot allows you to vary the ways that extras enter and exit the scene which can keep the audience engaged in the video.

  • Amenities and Features
    Choosing a location that provides you with additional features can help make the entire process of filming and editing much easier. Having additional features like Wi-Fi allows you to upload your video to be edited by other members of your crew that might be in another location.

  • Lighting
    Locations that have many sources of lighting, from natural to rig lighting, can make it easier for you to shoot a high-quality video. It’s wise to avoid locations with minimal or poor lighting as you might have to bring more equipment than necessary. This can make the entire video shoot a more tedious process.

Video Shoot Inspiration

Whether your aim is to advertise products or create a production that aims to reach many people, choosing a location is key in making your video shoot unique. Browse through the many options available to find a location that suits your needs and preferences.

  • Fashion Shoot at a Mansion
    A great location to make a statement, having a video shoot at a mansion can really emphasize your brand and can help spread your desired message and appearance to all audiences. From Spanish Villas to Mediterranean chateaus, perhaps a mansion is just what you need for your upcoming video shoot.

  • Lifestyle Videos at a Gym
    Full of natural lighting and an active environment, gyms make for a great setting for your upcoming lifestyle video. These locations emphasize health and can be used to promote all sorts of products, clothing, or activities.

  • Cooking Show at a Farmhouse
    Emphasizing a pastoral atmosphere where everything is calm and one is closer to nature, a farmhouse can serve as a great venue for an upcoming cooking show. These relaxed venues allow for everyone on set to act more naturally which yields better quality videos.

  • Corporate Videos at Offices
    Offices allow you to create a video that can help boost productivity and serve as the perfect location for all sorts of corporate-themed videos like teambuilding and conferencing. Many corporations nowadays make use of modular offices which may be just what you need for your next video.

  • Music Video in a Derelict Warehouse
    Warehouses are usually considered high-capacity venues which are perfect for large-scale music videos. Moreover, the fact that most warehouses are empty allows you to get creative with the props you decide to bring onto the set.
