List Your Property

How to Showcase Your Property as a Film Location

Washington Filmworks receives location requests daily from the entertainment industry. These requests range from feature films, television movies, commercials, music videos, corporate media and still photography shoots. If you have an interest in listing your Washington home, business or property on our online location database, we have tips and guidelines for success.

Keep in mind the following:

  • Start by taking photos of the exterior of your property including shots of your street
  • Move into the interior of your property
  • Take photos from opposing corners of each room
  • Highlight any unique features of your property such as a pool, barn, loading dock, roll up door, etc.
  • Keep in mind that producers are not always looking for glamor shots
  • If your property has a business or property sign, include a close-up
  • Include photos of available parking on or nearby your property
  • Here is a link to a property (Craftsman Homestead) in our online location database for you to use as a guide

Please also include the following information in your submission email:

  • Your name
  • The address of your property
  • Your contact information
  • A description of your property with square footage and/or acreage
  • A statement that you are the property owner
  • A statement that Washington Filmworks has permission to use the photos you send. If you took the photos, you probably own them and can give permission yourself. If you didn’t take them, you should verify with the person who took the photos that you have their permission to let us use it. We are happy to credit photographers if requested.

When submitting photos, they must be in a JPEG. Please do not submit website links. General resolution and sizing standards are below:

  • 144 - 150 dpi
  • File size between 200KB - 1MB
  • JPEG compression = 7 good quality
  • 1280 x 1024 resolution (or higher) for large size web browsing

Send your submission to Info@WashingtonFilmworks.org with “Property Submission” as the subject. Once your location is added to our site, you will receive an email confirmation with a link back to the property info.

If a production has interest in your property, Washington Filmworks will reach out to you and let you know. With your permission, we will connect you with the production for further details.
