Relocation, an adventure

Global mobility projects, apart from the new workplace and new colleagues, are very exciting because of the move and the chance to live in another country. It’s a new adventure that begins and it’s important to appreciate and take advantage of the opportunity you have been given. A new country, a new language, different norms and a different culture can’t be anything but exciting. But of course, it’s a challenge that evokes thoughts and concerns.

Are you up for the challenge?

You might wonder if it’s a good match for you and your family? Is your partner on board and are there opportunities of work for him or her in the same city? What should you do if you don’t like the project, go back home? If you are about to carry out a relocation with children you have to look over the school system to find out the best solution for them. Or if you are planning on having kids and there is talk about extending your stay, then it’s a good idea to plan ahead and plan for education. There is a lot that can happen and man is programmed to always think of the worst scenario that can happen instead of seeing opportunities. Of course, it’s good to have a backup plan as it’s a big step to move abroad, but you mustn’t focus on the setbacks or what might happen but think of all good that can come of it for you and your family.

6 Ways to do the Best Location Scouting

Work

Pre-production makes or breaks a production in the film industry. It is what sets the standard for the rest of the production. Location scouting and identification is one of the fundamental steps in the pre-production process. It requires the production team to choose locations with a number of specifications in mind. Here, you will find 6 key ways on how to do the best location scouting.

Follow the Script

The world is brimming with perfect locations for shoots, but the only way these locations are going to be perfect is if they are fit for a particular script. To know this, the production team must know the layout of the script in order to find locations that complement it. The script should never be the one to be woven into the location.

Be Aware of Seasons

Climate and weather will affect location setup and hence the shoot. When scouting for a location, it is wise to check it in the season or weather when the shoot will take place. This should factor in mechanical and people traffic, as well as the weather and time of day when the shoot is to happen.

Identify Lighting Sources

Lighting is a key ingredient to getting that perfect shot. Regardless of whether it is external or internal lighting, it needs to be set up. If it is outdoors, the sun, obstacles, and spotlights need to be factored early on. Indoor lighting requires placement of high powered lighting, which brings in power sources. locations-scouting

Locate Power Sources

The production team should identify the source of their power. If they cannot get a place to source their power in location, they will have to bring in their own generator. This should be planned early on to avoid getting stranded on location.

Ensure Adequate Space

When sourcing for a location, the team will need to assess whether it has enough space to accommodate the setup and crew. The identified locations are then cleared in preparation for shooting.

Secure Necessary Licenses

Different locations require different licenses in order to be used as shooting sites.
