The Dallas Film Commission maintains an extensive photo file library of various locations throughout the North Texas area. We often receive calls from people who would like to have their property on file to be considered as a possible filming location for upcoming projects. Following are guidelines on how you can submit your property (home, business, ranch, etc) to be included in the Dallas Film Commission digital location files.

What we need from you

Photographs of the property are highly important!  Please provide digital photos via email with multiple angles of the entire property, interior and exterior (ie: all rooms of a house/business, each exterior side of the house/business, and special features).

Photo formatting & sizing:

    • Must be saved in JPEG format
    • 1680 x 1050 resolution (or higher) preferred
    • File size between 500 KB – 3 MB per image preferred
    • 144-150 dpi preferred
    • JPEG compression = 8 good quality
    • Please don’t send more than a total of 30 MB of images per email (and attach vs insert them)
    • If you have higher quality images (including panoramas), a large number of images, or other size issues, please use dropbox or contact us to discuss other options to send.

In addition to the photos, include the following information:

    • Contact Name(s)
    • Address
    • City, State, Zip
    • Home Phone and Secondary Number (Work and/or Mobile Phone)
    • E-mail Address

Description of property:

    • Type (house, office, warehouse, etc.)
    • Size (approximate square footage)
    • Details (any unique features)
    • Address (if different from the contact)
    • Surroundings (are you near a park, wooded area, airport, church, school?, etc.)

Please include if you comfortable with your property appearing in our online Location & Venue Gallery or if you’d prefer we keep them private and only provide directly to clients as needs arrive.  Your contact information will not be provided in the online gallery regardless.

Also, please let us know if you are willing to consider student or unpaid requests or only wish to hear from projects that can pay location fees and have production insurance.

What to expect

Your photos will be added to our digital library that is used to forward “location packages” to productions interested in filming in our area.  Photos sent to various projects will depend on what locations the production needs.  If the production company is interested in your property, you will either be contacted by us or a representative of the production company to set up a “scout” or visit.  This visit does not commit either party to filming at the property but allows everyone to see if it will work for that project.  If chosen, the production will provide you with all details of the shoot and negotiate potential use.  If you have questions regarding this process, please feel free to contact us to discuss it.
