When producing a film, the backdrop to your scenes can be one of the most important story elements. However, it's critical to ensure you have the necessary permissions to use a film location both during and after the filming when the project is released.
We've created a location release form template that ensures you not only have permission to use the location in your film, but that you've agreed on all the necessary terms around scheduling, access, payment and more.
