Movie/tv production in apartment

Posted by Jim Rubin on March 27, 1997 at 16:10:31:


A friend of mine is allowing the production company for "Law and Order" to
shoot in her apartment. Another friend who went to the American Film Insti-
tute in Los Angeles said that one of the first things they warned against
was allowing on-location shooting in one's home. He said the film co.
offers what looks like an iron-clad contract with liability insurance but
that in reality the production company is made up just for that particular
location and is made defunct immediatly after each location shoot. So if
damages are sought, you are left suing a defunct company!
So then, my question (I know, you aren't lawyers and an answer here does
not constitute legal advice..) Has anyone here on-line had experience with
this situation in thier apartment or know anyone that has? Even better, is
there anyone here that has been a member of a film company shooting on
location and can impart some wisdom on this matter?

Thanks in advance,
