What is a 'Recce' and how do I book one?
How do I book a Recce?
A "recce" is a short term for a required viewing. This ensures that you can view your space prior to shooting and determine it will meet the requirements. This also provides an opportunity to learn about the space and ensure that it is the right space for you. You can book a standard or technical recce prior to confirming your booking, just select the Book a Recce button to submit an enquiry and select the type of recce you need.
If a recce leaves you dissatisfied with your choice of location, let us know and we can find the perfect space for you.
Standard industry practice is that you will need a standard initial recce and then a longer technical recce to sort out logistics before the day. We know how important this is to you which is why we support both options.
To book a recce you can do this via your shortlist or from this property profile page using the 'Book a Recce' button.
What services do you offer?
As well as offering private locations with public and commercial coming soon, we can help with stylists, accommodation, transport and more.
Alongside finding a space for your project, we are more than happy to connect you to additional services that have been approved by the APS team. These are categorised as:
Location Services - Permits etc
Please let us know if you require any other services that do not fall under these categories by entering this information at the time of requesting the booking or emailing us at [email protected] We are always more than happy to help, and will gladly connect you with high quality service providers to ensure your project runs smoothly.
What insurances do I need?
To meet our Hirer Terms and Conditions policy, we ask that you provide proof of your current public liability insurance. Hirers should ensure they have a policy in place covering public liability and damage insurance for a sum not less than $20,000,000.00 (Australian dollars) including cover for death and injury of any persons using or attending the Location.
