Event Details

**THIS IS A TWO DAY COURSE** - Saturday January 27/Saturday February 3

Instructors: Greg McMaster and Geoff Smither

This course is designed to help Location Department participants develop their knowledge and understanding of all aspects and requirements of location scouting.  It will focus on the key areas of the scouting process from script breakdown to presentation of location files covering why and how we scout, search strategies, creative collaboration with others involved in the scouting process, written and verbal “front porch” pitches, good photographic and file management habits and why presenting a professional face of the film industry is important. Location Scouting Fundamentals will lay the foundation for achievement in the Location Department.

This is an entry & intermediate level course designed for Location Department members with solid production experience - Loc PA’s, on-set ALM’s, emerging and current location scouts with an interest in the creative and technical process of scouting. Participants should possess solid digital camera skills as well fluid computer/ laptop ability.  All participants are encouraged to bring both their camera and computer each day to take full advantage of the course (though not absolutely mandatory).
