It's wonderful to hear good news about Reel-Scout, especially when it comes from one of the premiere sources for media and entertainment news.
A few weeks ago (late February 2011), Film News Briefs published a brief write-up on Reel-Scout. To share it with everyone who hasn't seen it yet, I've copied and pasted the text below straight from their website:
This new site may be the answer to the prayers of certain filmmakers. An online location library that is home to more than a million location photos, the site allows both producers and home owners the opportunity to reach the desired target. Users can manage their properties at any time and create lightboxes that they can share with others. Location scouts, US film offices, CVBs, destination marketing companies, or any organization wanting to market their locations can do so through the site, as well. What’s nice about the site is that it provides a direct connection to property owners across the United States. And, unlike other online resources, the site doesn’t take any portion of the fee paid to property owners who get filming.
