Condo policy on film shoots in unitsApr 13, 2007


A few unit owners in our condo have recently asked permission to allow commercial film (movie) shoots in their units. The Board is very hesitant, but not dead-set against. Does anyone out there have written polices on shoots in units that I can use as models? Thanks.

we oughtta be in pictures - steve w Apr 13, 2007


Looking forward to your response, Fat Nickie!

Is there a way to list your apartment/building with production companies to let them know they're welcome to film in our building?

A few years ago, before I was on the board, one of the TV cop shows asked to film in our building. The board said no because they were afraid of damage to public areas. Now, we're hardly a fancy building -- pretty basic, in fact, with plenty of scratched walls and cracked tile. I can't believe a film company wouldn't make a certificate of insurance available.

Now other buildings around us are used for films. I hope we haven't missed out.

Fat Nickie, if you find out what your friend's building charges for the right to film in it, please let us know.

Film shoot (to NSB/ Steve W) - Fat Nickie Apr 14, 2007


I did not go into the fees charged for shoots. He did inform me that the crews are very professional and responsible. Some of the issues to be concerned with are.

* Keep your shareholders informed of when shoots will take place.

* Makeing sure the walls and floors are protected as heavy equipment will be rolled around.

* Many will have their own touch up crews if hallways etc get damaged.

* They may need to hook up to the buildings electric panels.

* Be aware that shoots may run later than scheduled.

* Security issues.

* There will be a lot of traffic in/out of the building.

* The location manager should be able to answer all you questions/concerns.

FN.

Not in our co-op - EdT-NJ Apr 17, 2007


Folks,

Not to throw water on a party, but what happened to the mantra: “quiet enjoyment” to which all residents are entitled?

The activity does not pass the test, so we would not approve.
