Our Services

Property Owner Client Services

The Location Portal team is committed to providing our property owner clients with the following important services: Marketing The Location Portal implements a strategic marketing plan for each property owner. This involves photographing all areas available for filming and featuring them at our user-friendly website www.thelocationportal.com.  Each property has its own web page with information pertinent to production.  Photographs are updated as filmable areas change (space is leased, etc.) The Location Portal distributes a bi-monthly Newsletter to our comprehensive list of production companies, location managers and scouts, ands work with the property owner in hosting periodic familiarization tours. Management In preparation for the first production at a property, The Location Portal works with the property owner in developing standard policies and procedures for filming. These are made part of the Location Filming Agreement to be used for each production. The Location Portal will screen any production interested in the property with respect to budget, requested areas of use and anticipated production dates. If acceptable to the property owner, The Location Portal will proceed with an initial scout of the property, followed by any additional scouts (i.e. Director, Technical) should there be interest. The Location Portal will then assist in negotiating a Location Filming Agreement between property owner and production company, obtain evidence of proper insurance coverage, collect all license fees (and remit to property ownership) and security deposits. The Location Portal will provide an experienced site representative to manage the production from load-in to wrap activities, and to facilitate a good working relationship between production and property staffs. Once filming is complete, The Location Portal will handle close-out, including determination of any final costs due prior to the return of the security deposit to the production company. Special Events The Location Portal also provides special event venue promotion and event management for our property clients who have event space.

The Location Portal facilitates this partnership. With each film production that takes place in one of our client’s properties, it is our objective that the production company has a favorable experience and remains a long term partner of that property and client of The Location Portal.
