Database to assist prod'ns with N.Y. property contact
The New York City Mayor’s Office of Film, Theater and Broadcasting has launched Hot Shots, an online photo library, which gives producers and location managers instant access to a catalog of Gotham-owned sites throughout the five boroughs that are available free of charge for production.The digital, searchable database will assist prospective productions by providing them with contact info for representatives who manage various city-owned properties, including beaches, courthouses and parks. By offering visuals, Hot Shots will help productions in the selection of city-owned properties suitable for scouting, based upon the requirements of their shoots. Database was developed as part of the Mayor’s Office of Film, Theater and Broadcasting’s concierge service, which assists productions with all aspects of the production cycle, from script to screen.
