We are responsible for finding and securing locations, as well as all logistics associated with filming at a location.
During pre-production, the Location Manager will work closely with the Director and Designer to scout locations that meet the artistic vision for the production.
Once the location has been agreed, the Location Manager can set about scheduling dates for filming, agreeing fees for the location, seeking permission from local authorities and residents, arranging parking for film crew, planning traffic orders, and arranging temporary facilities for crew, production and talent during filming.
Naturally, during pre-production, things change around a lot. Scripts get changed, budgets get reallocated, the list is endless. Location Managers have to think on their feet and be able to adapt to ever-changing requirements and environments.
These important skills, combined with yeas of experience, have allowed us to complete work location managing high-end feature films like the “Harry Potter” franchise, “Pirates of the Caribbean”, “Notting Hill” and “Love Actually”.
