This one-day online workshop will teach you how to see filming possibilities in the locations around you by focusing on options for some of the types of locations most often requested: differing periods in time, other cities of the world and substituting one place for another.
The day will consist of two live workshop sessions plus online scouting exercises. A short script, given in advance, will provide the inspiration for the locations to be found and research guidance, case studies, discussions and collaborative working sessions will support the scouting process.
The aim of the workshop is to increase your knowledge of the location potential around you and to show you how to effectively present and pitch your suggestions to a Location Manager, Director and Designer. You will also be taught how to create a Location Library to store your digital photos and the tools needed to maintain it for the future as well as making a contact list of sources.
A one-to-one feedback and review session will be made available to each participant after the course.
This workshop is ideal for anyone wanting to learn what to look for when scouting for locations and how to find the creative possibilities in all that surrounds them.
