Location Scout Checklist

Just curious Stage 32 community, what would your ultimate location scout checklist consist of? For a new production, I'm making a list and check it twice. Love to hear your thoughts?

A big part of location depends on a few variables. 1 Proximity to either the crew or the talent. Are you driving to them, they driving to you, or a mutual location. 2 Depending on the answer to number 1 what do you have available...ex. public property, someones home or business, parks. Always remember ...what looks good on camera, would you watch it, also what do you have available to you. is it free or is there a cost or trade involved. 3 A huge part of the public or private location will have to do with permits, certificates of insurance, rules and regulations regarding privacy..drones. plenty of other variables...hope this gets you on the right track. Remember research research and location location. Always have a plan and a backup. Darren
