We encourage you to decide what your crew and cast feel most comfortable with and to come to an agreement with the location owner before the production.
Ultimately, it is up to the location owner to decide if they’re going to be present during the production. However, most choose to leave the space after the first walkthrough and arrive before the final walkthrough of the space. It’s not uncommon for them to also quickly check-in during the day.
Some location owners may feel more comfortable staying at the location during the shoot. However, if they choose to be on site, they’re expected to stay out of the production’s way.
In instances of overnight productions, hotel and food accommodations are appreciated for homeowners (and their family). You can add these as stipends to your booking request and Set Scouter will collect this payment.
