REGISTER YOUR PROPERTY
Our contacts – location managers, production companies and photographers – might need a power station in The Netherlands, a farm in Stolpen, or a family house in Amsterdam. Xity shootservice is constantly looking for new properties for our library; we source and represent locations from all over the netherlands and beyond.
Xity shootservice will endeavour to negotiate the best fee for your property. There is no charge to register, we simply take a 20% commission (+VAT) of the final facility fee should a production company or photographer end up shooting at your property. Xity shootservice will take on the management of your property and we will ensure that production companies or photographers are fully insured for damage and public liability. We will draw up a location contract that gives production companies permission to use your property for the agreed fee and the rights to display or show the images taken on the shoot. The contract also gives you, the location owner, the insurance that your property will be left in the same way as it was found.
To register with Xity shootservice, we will need you to take photographs of your property, both interior and exterior, and email them to us with your contact details.
It would help us if you photograph your property in the following way:
1. Photograph in landscape format, not portrait.
2. Photograph during the day with plenty of light.
3. Make sure the photographs you send are in focus, if you have one use a tripod.
4. We find the best way is to start from the front door, and take photos as you walk through the property.
5. Take photos from each corner of the room, from the doorway and looking towards the doorway. The more angles we have the easier it will be to propose your property as a location. So be sure to photograph reverse angles-for example, photograph both up and down the hallway, up and down the stairs, etc.
Photographs do not have to be of professional standard as long as they give us a clear picture of the property. If you have any questions, about photographing your property or the application form, just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill in the contact form.
Of course, Xity shootservice cannot guarantee that your property will be used. If your location is short-listed by the production company or photographer, we will arrange a brief visit or recce to assess its suitability, and we’ll let you know as soon as the decision is made.
