Finding the perfect location or site for a successful Advertising or Film project must incorporate local knowledge, excellent management and the best resources to take your project to the right location. As location scout I will usually oversee several other scouts and assistant managers during the course of any project. always taking into account all the logistics necessary for the production to adequately work.


Before submitting any location for approval I’ll provide all the fees and budgetary restrictions of the production, local permitting costs and regulations, camera and lighting requirements, convenience to other locations, crew, production services, crew and unit parking, and possibly incidental issues such as direction of the sun, traffic in and around the location, airplane flight paths, weather patterns, road work, or public demonstrations.


Once the location has been determined to meet the appropriate look, I can schedule dates for preparation, wrap and strike, and negotiate with the property owner an appropriate fee as well as fees to any neighbors and tenants that may also be impacted by the production. I will also apply for the necessary permits through the local municipality and/or community and housing associations, arrange parking for trucks, equipment and crew, prepare temporary facilities for holding production, talent, crew and meals, and ensuring the security of the location, the safety of the crew while minimizing the impact to the surrounding community. As the first and last person the public sees that represent the production I’ll be responsible for ensuring that the location is returned to the condition in which it was received.
