Locations Needed for Feature Films

Locations Needed for Feature Films

Hello everyone,        (These must be in Nassau County)
Hope your holidays we're wonderful!  We are looking for the following locations:

1)For an indie feature, horror film, they are in need of an old house from 1800's to 1900's, preferably one that is vacant or the homeowner is not staying there. They would like to keep their equipment there and, if possible, have 4 crew members stay overnight in the house.  This low-budget indie film stars Eric Roberts, Cathy Moriarty, Tom Pelphrey and Jim McCaffrey.
They would need the house for at least 10 days and they are willing to rent a vacant place for the entire month.This is a Ghost story and the family in the story is moving into a new home that is haunted. They need it for Feb 4th, crew is no more than 20 and cast in house will be up to 2 to 5 people but at different times. They can pay around $500 to $750 per day or a flat month rental fee for a vacant house.  They would need house for 5 days from 8 am to 8 pm. And 4 days from 4pm to 11 pm.And the family is moving in so the less furniture the better. If you have any referrals, please e-mail and reference Sebastian.

2) For a major feature film, beginning in February and for two months after, they need:
- concrete hard service approximately 1000' long x 500' wide
- ability to poor concrete to build up terrain for the stunt (all to be removed and restored) upon completion of filming.
- ability to make snow
- ability to place approximately 300 shipping containers around the perimeter of the space to create a "green screen"
- support lot for approximately 200 crew cars/catering/construction office trailer/necessary equipment/stunt vehicles/bathrooms/dumpsters etc.
If you have any suggestions, please e-mail and reference, Ninja.

3) For another (large) nameless feature, they’re looking for the following locations (and they’ve requested pictures): 
The basic feel of all these environments is working class, a city, people and places that saw better days 20 years ago, not like really bad, but a bit on the older, grittier side.
Basically – need everything
“PACKS OF STUDENTS mosey towards the campus. A classic
brick and stone Catholic School.”
For the EXTERIORS, a bunch of scenes are set with kids coming and going, cars in parking lot, cars pulling up out front – so it should have a bit of room, back a bit from the street, a reasonably workable space – also has to have a TRACK
“St. Francis de Sales Catholic School is just like any
other middle school. Diverse. Modern. Noisy.” (don’t make too much of the word “modern” --
Classrooms, Principals office, bathrooms, halls, computer lab
Auditorium with stage
A bit on the seedy side horse track. “Decrepit cars litter the lot.” Need all locations – track, horse stalls, the whole thing
Yonkers Raceway has trotters, script isn’t trotters but we should contact them anyway I think it could work and they are film friendly with Natascha.
c) INT. MISSION HILLS HOSPITAL – everything, all over the hospital, but there’s nothing special about it’s look – so any hospital with full access to nurse’s station, rooms, exam rooms, birth/operating room, all OBGYN examining room
NOTE this is “An expensive, well-kept convalescent center.”
And it has nice grounds with a duck pond – “sitting on a bench in front of a gorgeous pond,cluttered with ducks”
Interiors – halls, rooms, etc.
e)A BANK INTERIOR – “Standard bank” – again, most important is access to everything -- lobby, teller windows, office, safe deposit boxes – big enough to have a waiting line -- “An electronic arrow points him to TELLER WINDOW #23.”
f)There are two houses, next door to one another, that are in a lot of scenes. The neighborhood should be older, not wealthy, on the working class (Roseanne, Archie Bunker) side – there is a driveway between them
g)VIN’S HOUSE “Hits the picketfence on the neighbor’s border. Crash. It topples. Hits his own mailbox on the other side.”
INTERIOR “Vin puts his feet up on a weathered coffee table,
watching TV from his paisley pattered couch. The decor
is feminine inspired, twenty years ago.”
h)BAR  The Buck – “local dive bar. SMOKERS outside litter the sidewalk. The windows are painted with “Happy New Year” greetings. Old neon. Older PATRONS. Vin sits at the bar next to
LINDA and GUS, a weathered married couple in their late
60s. The hanging TV set plays New Year’s Eve coverage from around the country”
i)NAT’S DINER  a greasy spoon. Booths.
j)EXT. THE PINK CADILLAC - STRIP CLUB – Classic, dump strip bar in a rundown industrial strip
h)Another “neighborhood is lined with decrepid houses, iron gates shielding every window and door. Vin sits in hiscar outside one of the more indigent shacks.”
k)EXT. LA COUNTY FAMILY COURT - A gray stone court house.
If you have any suggestions for these (and hopefully photos), please e-mail to and reference – Weinstein.
Thank you.
