Your Home the Movie Star

I just read an article from the Forbes-MSNBC partnership, titled How to Make Your Home a Movie Star. While I'm pretty sure I don't want to volunteer my own home (except for the perk of having a free housekeeper), this looks like it would be cool. The owner(s) of the home in France where part of The DaVinci Code was filmed received $108,000 for nine days of shooting. Others I saw (10 Homes that Have Hit the Bigscreen) received from $12,000 to $100,000 (the home where the Lindsay Lohan Parent Trap was filmed got $100G).

If you're interested in offering your home for films, the article advises that you "list your home with your local film commission as well as with location agencies. These agencies will aggressively promote your property, in exchange for a cut of 10 to 30 percent of the shooting fee." Contact Tennessee's Film Commission here. Specifically, here's a link to make your property available. How cool is that?
