So what does this have to do with real estate - simple networking. I have made quite a few connections and each of those movies needs locations. It is time to think outside of the box and look for other avenues to promote our listings. .... AND Do you have that listing for that incredible million dollar home that is furnished and sitting empty - How About Having it Rented to One of the Stars of the Film or to be used for a few days for a location shoot.
Many of your states on their websites will have a film office site. You can set yourself up as a location manager or scout. Who knows locations better than us? We are out there all of the time scouting that perfect home for someone - well here is another way to use that resource. The pay - pretty darn good.
Many years ago I, at the tender age of 13, I was asked to be in a local movie, Billy Jack. That led to Red Sky at Morning and then onto Running Wild and Showdown. It was then I decided to pursue other interests leaning towards the fashion arena.
Well needless to say several years ago I was in a position to accept another movie, Buffalo Girls. I had so much fun I have been doing background for many of our locally made movies and television shows, Swing Vote, In Plain Sight, Crazy Heart, and The Spy Next Door. I will soon be filming an upcoming series called Locked, and have been asked to play the main role in a soon to be shot horror/suspense film. I will work hard perfecting my screaming and scared look.
Here is a shot from some small productions I did.
