Welcome to Film This!

Welcome to Film This!

Film This! opened its doors and took its first film permit and signature job in January of 2003 – and we haven’t looked back since.

Tim Ballou and Wade Stevens created Film This! for one simple reason: to make location filming in Southern California as easy as possible. We do this by offering a wide variety of related services focused on the needs of the location production.

Welcome to Film This Production Services, Inc., your one stop for film permits, location, signature and notification services – and more

No, Film This! is not a replacement for your scout or location manager. Rather, we become an integral member of your production family.

Film This! is your support staff of seasoned location professionals specializing in film permits and on-location necessities such as signature surveys and “no parking” sign posting, all of which you may not have the time or the patience for.

We have built relationships with government agencies all over the country as well as a number of location-related companies providing everything from layout boards to barricades to awnings needed for shelter. One call to us will save you time and money.

Time and Money…the two things a production never has enough of…
