Frequently Asked Questions

Will businesses be compensated if they close for production?

Typically, if the production is expected to close a business during regular business hours, producers sometimes have stated that compensation will be provided.

How do I find out about road closures due to a production?

Road closures and other impacts to businesses and residents will be communicated in advance via social media, this website and via RoCo Alerts where applicable. Click here to sign up for RoCo Alerts text messages: 

Will the film production cater using local businesses?

This depends on whether a film is independent or part of the Screen Actor's Guild (SAG).

Independent film productions, known as indies, can cater using local businesses.

Larger film productions are required to use unions. Specifically, catering for Screen Actors Guild actors falls under a union contract. Unless your establishment is a union caterer, please understand that production food service might already be contracted.

Either way, this does not mean that members of this group will not visit your establishment. The film production staff will occasionally dine outside the production venue. Customer service and hospitality is key for non-catered meals and snacks.

How can I be part of the film?

A film production has many opportunities for locals to participate. There could be casting opportunities for small parts, or as a background extra. There are also sometimes intern or production assistant opportunities available. Production companies often advertise needs via social media or through casting agents.
