Movies have been made in Venice since Abbott Kinney brought it to life in 1905.  We want to carry on the tradition at Del Rey Colony.

                                         Filming Venice Beach

Del Rey Colony is a true reflection of resort style living near the Venice Canals. These 54 town homes are placed in a unique and gated private community overlooking a serene 1.3 acre freshwater lagoon featuring a pool, full gym and 24 hr security.

(I lifted this from another website.  We have our own rules)

PRODUCTION COORDINATOR: We ask for a single point of contact for the production on the shoot day. Please inform us who will serve as the Production Coordinator and provide us her/his contact information. The Production Co-ordinator must read and understand our House Rules.

INSURANCE REQUIRED: The Guest/Renter will need to submit a General Liability Insurance Certificate showing owners name and the property address as additionally insured certificate holder (contact us for more details.) Also, please be sure to include proof of Workers Comp. insurance. Many times it is a separate policy. If you don’t have Workers Comp. insurance you will need to sign a waiver upon arrival. If you are a small production and don’t have insurance please let us know and we will find a work around.

FILM/PHOTO PERMITS: It is the responsibility of the Production to determine if they need a filming/photography permit from Film L.A. The Old Hollywood Tuscan Villa is in no way liable for any penalties that the production may incur due to their failure to secure a permit. We require proof of a film permit for shoots of 10 or more people. NOISE: When outside, please be sensitive to and respect our neighbors and refrain from playing loud music or shouting. For music videos we require lip sync to playback from a cell phone.

PARKING: Production is permitted to park a maximum of 2 total vehicles on Dundee Drive. We have no driveway. There is a $150 charge per each additional vehicle parked on Dundee Drive beyond the allowable two (2) total vehicles. Film L. A. permit parking requirements SUPERSEDE our parking requirements.

 NO EARLY ARRIVAL: Please do not arrive early and hang out in the street until the shoot time. If you are early, please park on some other nearby street until shoot time. Dundee Drive is a very small street in a quiet residential neighborhood. If your crew or talent arrive early, the production will be subject to overtime charges.

DEPARTURE: The shoot is over when the tail lights of the production vehicles can be seen leaving. Please give yourselves enough time to load out. Please do not load everything into the street to beat the clock only to continue loading your parked vehicles in the street. This is a quiet residential neighborhood. We respectfully cannot have film crew loitering in the street.

SHUTTLES/UBER/TAXIS: If you are departing by shuttle, Uber or taxi, please wait on the property and not in the street for your taxi to arrive. OVERTIME: Overtime rate is 1.5 x your prorated hourly rate therefore please try to be accurate in your initial booking request. Overtime is calculated in minimum 1/2 hour increments.

EXTRA CAST/CREW CHARGES: Extra, undeclared people on shoot day are charged at 1.5 x your prorated per person rate, therefore please try to be accurate in your initial booking request.

REFUNDABLE DAMAGE DEPOSIT: Depending on the size of the shoot there may be a refundable security deposit. The amount of the deposit is proportional to the size of the shoot. SITE REP: For smaller shoots, the owner will act as site rep. Larger shoots will be required to pay a site rep. fee of $300 – $450. This is determined on a case by case basis. GUEST HOUSE: If you want to use the guest house (if it’s unoccupied) for anything more than filming/photography there is an $120 cleaning fee. We rent it by the night and it must be clean. You may use the main house bathroom and dining room for wardrobe, hair and makeup with no cleaning fee.

DRONES: No drones are permitted.

CHILDREN: Property must be alerted to any children. Children must either have a babysitter or be supervised by their legal guardian.

CATERING: We prefer that smaller shoots of less than 20 people set up catering in the kitchen. For larger shoots, the front lawn, north lawn and lawn next to the pool are good places for setting up catering. SHOOT DATES: Weekdays. We rarely rent for the weekend.


GENERATOR: If Production feels they will need a generator it must be cleared with the property. BATHROOM: The designated bathroom is on the ground floor of the main house. B

WALK THROUGH: A walk through will take place before and after filming is completed with representatives of the guest and Host or On-Site Rep to determine if any loss or damage has occurred as a result of the production. The guest will be permitted to photograph and/or film the premises during such walk through. The guest will have the first opportunity to repair such damages itself or to engage licensed contractors to complete such repairs, if any.

MISCELLANEOUS: Producer shall require that all crew/cast/subcontractors obey the reasonable directions of the location site representatives as relates to protection of the property and failure to do so shall be a breach of this agreement. – Owner reserves the right to republish any photos or video from the shoot found on the internet on the space’s website(s)
