Making a Location Release

  • What is a Location Release?

    Whether you're filming a video, movie, commercial or are a pro photographer, location is key. If you've found the perfect location for your shoot, you will probably need a Location Release; if you need to get permission to shoot from the owner, a Location Release can help secure the site so that you can get the scene you've envisioned.


    Use the Location Release document if:

    • You want to get permission from an owner to shoot on their property.
    • You own property that's being considered for a film or photography project.
    • You're a location scout and want the right document on hand.
    • You're a producer, director, videographer or photographer.

    With a Location Release you can outline the details of how the location shooting will proceed, such as shooting dates, clean-up responsibilities, potential compensation, and any restrictions that the property owner might request. When the owner signs the Location Release he or she releases his or her rights to the filmed material, so that the filmmaker/videographer retains all rights. You can use a Location Release to help get the ball—or film—rolling.
