    Is the location easily accessible with parking?
    Will it be easy to drive to? Traffic problems at certain times of day?
    Do you have multiple locations to shoot in one day? If so are they all close enough to each other to make it manageable?
    Do you need to have the spaces covered as additionally insured on your policy?
    Will you need permission from the owner in written form to film there?
