Episode 62 - DODD VICKERS - Location Scout/Location Manager (1 reply)
Team Deakins again looks into the complexities of locations in the scheme of production. We talk with Dodd Vickers who shares with us how to find locations, things that have to be considered for locations and working with the budget. He also talks about how he needs to get into the director’s head, how the location department are the ambassadors of the film and the importance of getting to know the location neighborhood and the people living there. We also touch on reusing locations, remembering logistics when looking for locations and the difference in locations for film and TV. And much more!!
Please post further discussion and comments below.
And I thought that location managers were just those guys that keep the extras happy, wrangle onlookers and make sure that the food truck is up and running on time!
This is a must-listen if you are running (or hope to run) an indie film company!
