Location Scouting

Location scouting is more than just looking for places to shoot. There is a balance of careful considerations that must take place before settling on a location. Considerations on light, power, angles or load-in procedure can each supersede the visual qualities of the location. Inversely, a location might be so well suited or so specific that the complexities around shooting there must simply be resolved.

WHERE TO?

FUGO Studios has access to locations of all types. We know that the right location is everything when it comes to the look and feel of your project. Where others phone in this step, we ensure that your project gets the location that most appropriately works for you. So, from sleek and contemporary to rustic and historical, you are sure to get the best location possible when working with FUGO Studios.

SOURCING

COMMUNITY FIRST CREDIT UNION

Sometimes the most basic request can prove difficult. Finding the quintessential archetype of a given location means scouting through a sea of “almosts” and “not-quites”, often cold-calling when location databases come up short. When FUGO Studios began scouting for the Community First “Ear Gauges” location, we realized that finding the perfect men’s changing room was a nuanced process: A suitably ‘manly’ location that provided us with the look and tone while providing the production needs for fluid filming.

LOGISTICS

DELTA AIR LINES

Locations aren’t always buildings, for the Delta Air Lines Safety Video, FUGO Studios opted to shoot aboard a live aircraft. This decision required FAA cooperation, paperwork, credentials and careful background checks, far more than a traditional shooting location. The location would only be available to shoot overnight, and real-world limitations such as power, air-conditioning and easy load-in required significant overhauling of the production schedule. Proper location scouting means being prepared for unfamiliar territory, and thinking through angles, gear limitations and schedules well in advance.

PRODUCTION PLANNING

DORITOS

Production planning is central to proper location scouting. For the Dorito’s Ostrich commercial shoot, FUGO producers filmed in sections of a functioning office. The team had to ensure that work within the office was never interrupted and therefore careful planning was necessary prior to the shoot day. Angles we’re carefully mapped and time scheduled. Choosing the proper location ensured the ability to be prepared and stay ahead of the shoot.
