We encourage you to decide what your crew and cast feel the most comfortable with, and to come to an agreement and plan with the homeowner before your production day.
Ultimately it is up to the homeowner to decide if they’re like to be home during the production.
Many homeowners will leave their space to you during your production day with a walk-through before and after, and maybe a check-in during the day. Other homeowners may feel more comfortable staying home during the production and are expected to stay out of the way.
In the rare cases that shoots go overnight and a homeowner (and their family) is asked to leave the premises, hotel and food accommodations paid for by the production company, are always appreciated.
