Step 4 - The Application or Letter of Intent

Once preliminary surveys are complete and the production has decided on the location, the company should provide a letter of application for use.

The application or letter of intent should include a brief outline or “treatment” of the project, and should indicate the role of the location in the story. The property owner/manager may also want to request copies of the script pages where the location appears. If the location appears extensively, a copy of the entire script may be requested. All script material should be treated as confidential, and the production company may require a non-disclosure agreement.
