Whether you plan to shoot in a remote scenic landscape or in a tasteful residential home, location scouting for professional video production is a vital component of pre-production. Although location scouting can have a sizable cost, leaving it to a local expert will yield immense dividends in the long run, ensure your production avoids common pitfalls, and help you stay within budget. When we consider locations for professional video production, we take into account four main factors: appearance, availability, accessibility and cost. There are other smaller factors, but we’ll deal with the big hitters in this article.
In this business, it's important to make sure you're getting your name out there. ProductionHUB has helped play an important role in helping me do that as a cinematographer. The ability to bid on jobs has been a great feature, but even better is when a client approaches you because they’ve seen your profile and are interested in hiring you. Instead of a cold email, you’re now getting a direct lead that ProductionHUB did all the work for! Those kinds of leads are great because the client has already vetted your work and is interested in getting a quote from you. This can lead to lasting relationships with new directors, agencies, and production companies.
Looking down over the city from up on the Corcovado or Sugarloaf Mountain, the city and its topography start to make sense. Forested mountains frame the city, just a few blocks back from its most famous beaches. Wedged in between is the upmarket Zona Sul (“South Zone”), spreading from Botafogo in Guanabara Bay, round to Copacabana, west to the chic beaches of Ipanema and Leblon, and up the steep hillsides, where expensive condominiums and favelas sit side by side. Heading north, around the shores of the bay and inland lies the city center and the sprawling northern suburbs. And way out west, along the coast, is Barra da Tijuca, with its Miami-like strip malls, long beaches, and the Olympic Park.

Ask a Filmmaker of any stature, and they will tell you that they never have enough resources (time, budget, equipment), to devote to any project. It’s certainly true for me shooting indie (read: low budget) features. However, for better or worse, it is an area of the business I’ve come to be known for, movies with budgets between half a million and five million dollars. Over a 40+ year cinematography career, I’ve learned a lot of tricks to squeeze maximum production value and good looking images out of meager budgets, making dimes look like dollars on the screen.
In the short history of drones, acquiring authorization to fly has been a real hassle. FAA regulations require that you provide advanced notice and be cleared before take off—even for a flight under 400 feet. But a new app called LAANC promises to make life easier for drone pilots and operators who want the freedom to launch with ease at a moment’s notice.
So you're a Director or Producer who trolls on Vimeo for creative ideas and inspiration. After weeding through a gazillion time-lapse and steadicam videos, you've hit on a school of ridiculously beautiful aerial shots. You keep telling your creative inner self, “We’re gonna find a place for this scene in a project!” Then the perfect project rolls around, and you put the shot into the storyboards and base another 3-4 shots on this visual hook because the ideas is so awesome. And you're super stoked. Then the Buzzkill happens...
