Property Owner’s TOP FIVE TIPS for Negotiating Location Agreements

1.  Use of the Property
  • Identify what use producer can make of the property
  • Ensure all major alterations (e.g., knocking down a wall) be approved in writing
  • Require property be returned to original condition post-filming at producer’s expense
  • Ensure all expenses relating to use of property be paid by producer

2.  Access Rights

  • Identify dates of access (limit open ended production dates)
  • Specify time of access to limit disruption to business or household (e.g. 3:00 a.m. filming)

3.  Reps and Warranties

  • Disclaim reps/warranties regarding physical condition of property or suitability for filming

4.  Insurance

  • Ensure producer secures general liability and property insurance of sufficient value
  • Be named as an additional insured on the certificate of insurance
  • Require insurance company be qualified to do business in your state
  • Obtain copy of certificate of insurance before filming begins

5.  Indemnity

  • Don’t fall prey to indemnity language favoring producer’s use of the property
  • Require producer indemnify you for any damage or lawsuits arising out of use of the location and inclusion of the location in the film.

Preformatted Text

Typographically, preformatted text is not the same thing as code. Sometimes, a faithful execution of the text requires preformatted text that may not have anything to do with code. Most browsers use Courier and that’s a good default — with one slight adjustment, Courier 10 Pitch over regular Courier for Linux users. For example:

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
    The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
    The frumious Bandersnatch!”


Code can be presented inline, like <?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>, or within a <pre>block. Because we have more specific typographic needs for code, we’ll specify Consolas and Monaco ahead of the browser-defined monospace font.

#container { float: left; margin: 0 -240px 0 0; width: 100%; }

Blockquotes & Pullquotes

Let’s keep it simple. Italics are good to help set it off from the body text (and italic Georgia is lovely at this size). Be sure to style the citation.

Good afternoon, gentlemen. I am a HAL 9000 computer. I became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Urbana, Illinois on the 12th of January 1992. My instructor was Mr. Langley, and he taught me to sing a song. If you’d like to hear it I can sing it for you.

And here’s a bit of trailing text.
