Location Scouting is a vital process in the pre-production stage of filmmaking and commercial photography. Once scriptwriters, producers or directors have decided what general kind of scenery they require for the various parts of their work that is shot outside of the studio, a search is begun for a suitable place or “location” outside the studio. Location scouts will also look for appropriately spectacular or interesting locations beforehand, to have a database of locations in case of requests.

Location scouts are also often tasked with negotiating legal access to filming locations.

I recently authored my second article for Wikipedia, a short definition / description of the term “location library”:

Location Library (Motion Pictures and Still Photography)

…the title is nearly as long as the article! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Believe it or not, even tho the terms “location archive” or actually, more frequently, “location library” are terms I (and maybe you, too, if you are reading this – it’s not like I ever purported my blog to even attempt to appeal to anyone beyond a very specific niche of folks who work in various capacities in the film, photo and tv production communities… so unless you fit that profile the only way I can imagine you ended up here is you are really lost or really bored ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

…but I digress…

I started a considerably lengthier article on the subject of location scouting several years ago:

Location Scouting

..which I have continued to contribute to regularly as the article has matured – thanks of course to the generous contributions other Wikipedians

Both articles are part of my efforts as a member of Film-Reel-Wikipedia Wikipedia:WikiProject Films/Filmmaking task force

Also, altho the Wikipedia no-follow links policy is in place for very good reasons (i.e. link spam) and therefore, since Wikipedia doesnt generate any “link love”, I am tooting my horn here!

The Location Department is an often forgotten yet integral department in the creation of a motion picture. Like the Production Coordinator, it is only when things go wrong that the Location Manager gets any recognition.

There’s no great mystery to scouting good locations for a film. Theres no template that tells you exactly how to do it, either. Many of the requirements for a location will be in the script. Finding them is down to marshalling your resources. If you know the area where you are looking, you are well on your way, If you dont, a good starting point is people who do know it well.
