New Location Mapping Resource Simplifies Permitting Process, Highlights DeKalb Homes and Businesses for Production Scouts
DeKalb Entertainment Commission’s Online Portal Showcases Homes, Businesses, Scenic Locations for Film/TV Productions
DeKalb homeowners and businesses can now showcase their properties as potential locations and location scouts can easily secure locations and permits through a new online resource created by the DeKalb Entertainment Commission.
The online portal is accessible at DeKalbEntertainment.com and via any mobile device.
The system allows location scouts a one-stop portal to find, secure and pay for ideal sites throughout the county for film, television and commercial productions. The system streamlines permitting and approvals through every county department involved in the process.
“The new system makes location identification and permitting a completely electronic process, with every county department integrated into the online, paperless system,” said Shelbia Jackson, Director of the DeKalb Entertainment Commission. “Our system is based on FilmApp, the accepted standard used across the industry.”
DeKalb residents and business owners can also easily input their properties into the system as potential locations. From modern homes to 1970s-style ranches, from older offices to modern businesses, scouts are looking for the right “image” for their production.
To use the portal, scouts, filmmakers, homeowners and business owners simply click to https://dekalbentertainment.com/film-locations/ and choose their option: 1) Permitting, 2) Finding a location, or 3) Inputting your home or business as a potential location.
