  • Location permission question

    I am working on a new 'found footage' story for this winter, but it all hinges on getting permission to use one of the schools I clean. I think that I can get permission to use the school for my little production, but I want to have my ducks in a row and make sure that once I have permission no one can go back on the arrangement.

    Is there a standard contract or form I can use to cover my butt if they agree?

    Will my emails back and forth with the Principle and School Board be enough?

    Sonny boo has a lot of standard filmmaker forms; here's a location release:

    You may find that the school will require you to have liability insurance.

          Don't offer it - wait for them to say you need it :)

              True, but when you mostly need abandoned locations they will most always ask for it. A few will be fine with a very descriptive waiver, even though no waiver could hold up in court.
