- Location agency, location consultancy, location scouting assignments, exclusive research (for film, movie, events & photo shoot locations)
The location scouting is a vital person in the pre-production stage of filmmaking and commercial photography. A location scout does much of the actual research, footwork and photography to document location possibilities. Once creatives, scriptwriters, producers or directors/photographers have decided what kind of scenery they require for the various parts of their work that is shot outside of the studio, the search for a suitable film or photo shoot location starts outside the studio. Location scouts also look for generally spectacular or interesting locations beforehand, to have a database of locations in case of requests. read also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Location_scouting
Scouting locations is an addiction, it’s in your veins, ‘a hobby’ that turned into a great job that can require many talents and great patience. There’s no such thing as the typical ‘backpacker’ who knows some nice places. Since the 80’s we advise our clients where to find the best locations in the world for their next project. We know about inspiring film and photo shoot locations all over the world, in SOUTH AMERICA, ASIA, AUSTRALIA, NORTH AMERICA OR AFRICA.
For example a desert in Oregon or the Mojave desert, but within your budget.
We have a huge database and online locations we like to share with you.
To guarantee the location, it would possibly require a scouting, or a location recce, due to the simple fact locations change all the time. Location scouts often negotiate legal access to film, movie & photo shoot locations or this will be the important part for the location manager.
- Location Manager
We work with a network and partners, teams of highly experienced location managers, with a background in feature films, television dramas & commercials, and stills photographic shoots. Oversees the Locations Department and its staff, typically reporting directly to the Production Manager and/or Assistant Director (or even Director and/or Executive Producer). The Location Manager is responsible for final clearing (or guaranteeing permission to use) a location for filming and must often assist Production/Finance Dept(s) in maintaining budget management regarding actual location/permit fees as well as labor costs to production for himself and the Locations Department at large.
Assistant Location Manager
Works with the Location Manager and the various departments in arranging technical scouts for the essential staff (grips, electric, camera, etc) to see options which the Location Manager has selected for filming. The Assistant Location Manager will be onset during the filming process to oversee the operation, whereas the Location Manager continues preproduction from elsewhere (generally an office) on the upcoming locations. (Note: On most location-based television shows, there will be two Assistant Location Managers that alternate episodes, allowing one to prep an upcoming episode while the other is on set with the current one.)
A film crew might have the following titled positions staffed in regard to the Locations Department. Many of the positions often “cross over” or a member of the department might “wear several hats”.
