Daily Real Estate News  |  May 2, 2011  |   Property Photos Get Film Director's Attention
Taking good photos of a home not only can attract buyers, but apparently also Hollywood film directors. Real estate professional Alison Sternberg’s property listing photos recently nabbed the attention of a film director for a TV pilot.

Film director Jonathan Bucari was looking for a house to use in filming the TV pilot, “The Sacrificial Lamb,” that could represent a home of a U.S. senator whose family had been kidnapped. That's when he stumbled on listing photos at the Halstead Property Web site, the company that Sternberg works for, and noticed her photos of a home in Easton, Conn.

Sternberg arranged for the home to be used in the filming. The director also filmed additional scenes for the TV pilot at a home in Westport, Conn., which is also being represented by Sternberg.

“There have been a lot more inquiries about the house since the film crews were here,” Sternberg says.
