Locations are excellent, good or bad. Of course all of them have great scenery, good terrain and excellent weather. The classification is solely based on amenities available and requirements of the crew involved.
Location scouting is an art and a science in this aspect. The art finishes when the film to be location scouted for ranks high in suitability, weather and general environment against the requirement.
We at Plan It Locations, believe that a location scout should try and involve as many of the project staff as possible to get different points of view regarding the suitability of the film location being scouted. The more the number of ideas and inputs, the better the analysis and easier the decision. A location scout should always remember that Producer, Director, Photographer and Cinematographer form the core of the film project and their presence is very important for scouting.
