That could be your back wall, paying you thousands of dollars. via The Better Half

It used to be that making a living wage meant leaving your house and going to work. But now, maybe just leaving the house is enough: according to a location scout interviewed by BrickUnderground, giving a film crew access to your apartment could pay you anywhere from $1,000 per day to $50,000 for a three-day shoot!

Of course, it’s not as easy as lights, camera, action — there are a handful of criteria that influence location scouts’ decisions when choosing an apartment to use for a film or series (the BrickUnderground post lists seven things scouts look for). Lucky for you, we turned those criteria into an easy quiz you can take! Don’t be discouraged if your apartment doesn’t make the cut. But DO be very excited if it does.

  1. My apartment is pretty awesome! Duplex with lots of natural light, 3 bedrooms, in boerum hill Brooklyn. I took the quiz and it says my apartment meets all the criteria. What do I do next?
