Rules of Submission

CAN YOU HELP US IDENTIFY the REEL STREETS?

A big thank-you to all of our contributors who are helping us to make great progress in identifying film locations.

We are always looking for more location identifications, info, snippets, anecdotes or references. We will mention anyone who helps, see the blog, and give full credit to anyone who sends in location shots, either original or second-hand via Google etc.

Do also send us background information about the film and locations, or you or your friend's or family involvement.

Email your pictures or location information to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

BUT PLEASE OBSERVE THE TECHNICAL SPECS BELOW

Our criteria for inclusion in the lists is as follows...

Any film/episode made for screen or TV with outside, recognisable, built-up location shots. Real streets, (REEL STREETS), "stately homes", countryside or sea views that are an integral location within the film. We do avoid inside locations as they can so skilfully be recreated in a studio.

All entries must have received a commercial distribution and showing.

Rules of Submission / Adoption

Pull the stills from your favourite film, using GOM or VLC free programmes, try to identify the locations, take a comparative “now” photo, “adopt” the film and we’ll show you how to load everything on our site. News, views, opinions, criticisms, reviews, production photos, links, goofs, trivia etc., but, comparative photos are the life blood of the site. You can use one of our panels, a "now" panel, for your own adverts, buying / selling / announcing etc. FREE in any film you load.

Many of our original stills on our site will have been included on site as “establishing” shots, to enable everyone to better identify the shot which contains the actor and which scene was often zoomed into in close up. So take the “now” pics of the “establishing” shots as well.

All films need to have been made for cinema release/showing.

 

Technical Requirements:

Grab the film stills with VLC media player, or GOM, both are free programs.

In "Paint.Net” (a free download from http://www.techradar.com/downloads/paint-net) or other photo editing software make the image 420 pixels wide. Files must be in JPEG (.jpg) format and saved at about quality 4 or 5 or 40-50% to result in a file size of about 20-40Kb. Give the stills a reference code and number corresponding to the film’s title, and save. “Now” shots need an “n” suffix after the file number.

If the film is old and the images a little poor, then “tweak” the colour balance, brightness and contrast.

"Second-hand" shots, from Google, other sites, brochures, catalogues, newspapers or magazines will be overwritten if and when an original photo is presented.

If you have read this far, and you must have done in order to submit your pics, then it is understood that you have read, and therefore agree to, these "rules".
