Benefits of a Cummings film location

Save money in your film budget

Drive a short 10 miles outside the city for a filming location, and you’ll pay a fraction of what you would in Cambridge or Boston. This business decision will allow you to invest more of your budget in other areas of your project.

Enjoy flexible license terms

Take advantage of a straightforward leasing process—and a short, simple license—with Cummings. With durations starting at a single day, we will work with you to ensure you have as much—or as little—time as you need to get your project done.

Be close to Boston and Cambridge

Reap the benefits of being just minutes from downtown areas without the hassles inherent to a city stay. Our suburban locations allow for on-budget accommodations for cast and crew and a smooth commute to the set each day—all while providing proximity to Logan airport, public transit hubs, and urban attractions.

Select from a variety of versatile shooting and logistics locations

Does your scene call for a bustling business campus or a secluded warehouse? Are you looking for a picturesque park or an empty space you can tailor for the shoot? Do you need a separate space to build or store your equipment, wardrobe, and props? We will work with you to find locations that check all your boxes.

Occupy an amenity-rich environment

Filming at an office building or business campus means never having to wonder where the next meal, coffee, or bathroom break is going to lead your crew. You will have ready access to on-site facilities and nearby dining, shopping, and hotel options when you lease with Cummings.
