A few years back while living with a girlfriend who owned a spectacular Spanish Colonial in the tony hills of Los Feliz, we invited a movie sites management company to survey her home for possible movie/television shoots. At up to $5000/day for a shoot, the premise was an extremely inviting one (alas, nothing came of it). A few days ago Bloomberg.com reported about the current trend of Los Angeles home owners of doing the same with their homes as the economy tightens, notably some residents allowing porn features to be shot within their homes for the right price. Do you have a right price?
Some of you longer time readers (AT vets) might remember this post about XXX Interior Decor and homes that are featured in some of SF Valley's cinematic "movies". You might be surprised at how tasteful/modern some of the sets designs/homes are (some dirty minds may imagine sets to be filled with NSFW decor items like these); not a huge surprise since we understand these could be the homes of some our neighbors from our childhood zip code.
Would you allow a normal film/TV series to be shot in your home? How about a porn movie? If so, for how much? And even if not, tell us why (beyond some of the obvious hygienic reasons).
