Requests for location shootings, etc.

Saga Pref. Film Commission promotes film commission activities in the prefecture with the cooperation and understating of candidate filming locations and of many citizens. In order to help more film makers continue to film smoothly in the future, we would like to ask you to respect the following rules.

  • Please select a contact person, who will be responsible for coordinating with the FC, and clearly state his/her responsibilities.
  • In case when the shooting may inconvenient local residents (late night shootings, noises, etc.), we will ask you to explain this to the residents beforehand and obtain their consent.
  • Please inform the FC about your discussions with the facilities we introduced to you, whether you decide to use them or not.
  • When you cancel filming or change your schedule, please inform the facility manger and filming collaborators immediately. Please let the FC know as well.
  • Please make sure you discuss any terms or conditions thoroughly with facility managers and/or filming collaborators, and comply with those terms or conditions.
  • Please return all facilities to their original condition and clean them up when you are done filming.
  • We do not compensate for or provide any filming costs, nor do we help you with price negotiation with enterprises. Thus, the producer must deal with issues regarding placement of order or contract with filming equipment suppliers.
