Question by TheMan: Do filmmakers need to pay manufacturers for the use of guns, cars in their movies?
Like in Transformers, do the filmmakers have to pay GMC, Hammer, Chevrolet, etc. for using their cars?
Or if they use a H&K, a Colt or a Beretta, do they need to pay the manufacturers/
Same thing with a PDA, phone,…?
Answer by West Side™
No – its called product placement and is great advertising for the manufacturers – they pay the movie people to use/show their products.
I presume the gun makers do the same if its beneficial to their sales.
