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, and you or your friend's or family involvement.
If you want to submit information and/or "now" shots for a particular film, go to the page for that film and click on the Submission link.
If you have sufficient material for a film, eg. still grabs and now shots, and you wish to become the "owner" of that film (and have responsibility for that film on the site), please let us know and we will issue a login and password to you. Armed with this login you will be able to upload any stills and nows for that film yourself and also control any further 'now' shot submissions from other users.
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) not "stately homes", or countryside, or trees, or rocks, or sea views, or sets, but real streets.
If you can identify the grander houses used in some films we’ll be happy to blog the information and credit you.
The “grabbed” shot from the film, the “then” shot, should include at least one actor, please, not just stock exterior shots provided by the “second unit”.
All entries must have received a commercial distribution and showing.
All the films depicted on this site are the copyright of the current title holders.
The object of this site is to promote the wider knowledge of these films and thereby to benefit the current owners by renewed or increased interest in their real or intellectual copyright property.
The use of the individual low resolution "snips" from the films is intended as review, publicity or promotional material and in no way attempts to violate the said copyright holder's rights.
This site is for public consumption.
If any copyright holder objects to the use of their material on this site it will be removed.
"Now" pictures submitted become the copyright of Reelstreets, unless copied from a copyright protected source.
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.
The original still must contain an actor’s image.
Grab the film stills with VLC media player, or GOM, both are free programs.
In “Photoshop” or similar 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 stiils 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, newpapers 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".
