Learn the basics of location scouting from a 30 year industry pro! Deirdre Costa has worked on TV movies and films including Little Man Tate, Milk Money, Truman, Traffic, The Insider, The Ides of March, Seabiscuit, Carol and The Public.
Here’s what we expect to cover:
Intro to locations as a department – positions and who does what
How locations work with the creative team
How to scout/approach property owners
How to take pictures/what info to get on a scout
How to present locations to producer/directors
How to manage locations
The first part of this class will be classroom instruction, then we’ll head out to photograph actual locations. We will then return to the classroom to review the pictures, which will become a part of FilmDayton’s location guide.
