Do you want to create an exciting sci-fi epic, but you don't have a spaceship? Or maybe a ghost story but you don't own a haunted, old mansion?
Join Location Manager & Scout Nicki Newburger as she takes you on a walking tour of homes, offices, & restaurants to show you the why's and how's of choosing a location for your next film shoot, as well as how to creatively use these environments to turn them into something magical and new!
Location scouting is a vital process in the pre-production stage of filmmaking. Once a director has decided what kind of scenery they require, the search for appropriate locations begins!
