Maine residents, did you know your house or property can be a star in the next big movie filmed in Maine?
The process is now simple. Visit www.filminmaine.com, click on Locations, and upload photos of your property to the new Location Submission Engine (LSE) hosted by the Maine Film Office (powered by Reel-Scout). Once approved, your location will be available online immediately for the film industry professionals to research in their next film location scouting.
The Maine Film Office's LSE allows the public, including convention and visitor bureaus, chambers of commerce, homeowners and location scouts, to easily submit online locations that are available for filming.
"We want producers to see that Maine offers every possible location they would ever need to shoot a film, television series, commercial or catalog," said Karen Carberry Warhola, Director of the Maine Film Office. "Maine is a great place to film and it's time every corner of this state is available for viewing online."
"Maine is very competitive in terms of overall costs for producers and having a base of talented crew members," said Governor Paul R. LePage. "But other states simply cannot compete with Maine's natural beauty and limitless locations to shoot."
The Maine Film Office is a division of the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development's Maine Office of Tourism. One of the film office's main missions is to bring film, television and other media projects to Maine.
