Step 8 - Preparing for the Shoot

A few simple considerations will make the production experience easier for all:
  1. Residents, businesses and others who may be impacted by the shoot and any related disruptions should be communicated to in writing within 2 - 5 days in advance.
  2. Detailed photographic representation of the current state of a location should be documented to ensure the property can be restored to its original state after filming is completed.
  3. Those directly impacted by production activities should be contacted to address any concerns. The location manager should speak directly to neighbours next door and across the street.
  4. The location manager must ensure that all relevant permits and permissions are in place.
  5. The location manager must ensure that all parking, unit base camp, access, staging, toilet, security, power, recycling and waste removal requirements have been met.
