About Me

My success in the past has stemmed from my strong commitment and sense of professionalism. I keep high standards for my work and am known for my ability to follow through. I am very outgoing and I work well with all personality types. I completed my training in The Professional Film and Television Training Program in December 2010. I was given a great opportunity to get to do my internship with National Geographic. I have my Certification in:

* Location Scouting
* Location Management

Past Clients Include:

Sports Illustrated | National Geographic | Time Inc. | Whirlpool | Maytag | Nationwide Insurance | Volkswagen | Paranormal Challenge | Ghost Adventures | Barrett Firearms | Extreme Makeover Home Edition |

Over the past years I have had the privilege to work closely with some of the best names in the business. I put everything I have into every project that I work on and always go the extra mile to ensure the job gets done right the first time.

I wear many hats on set and work with all levels of crew to help make production run smoother. Throughout my career I have worked closely with the TN Film Commission to help bring more film to TN.

TN is such a beautiful state that has so many untapped locations that are perfect to use in the industry that I find everyday one location at a time.

I will work with you to find the perfect location that you are looking to discover. If you have a vision of what you would like to have brought to your project, I will bring your vision to life by finding and locking down that perfect location.

So what separates me from my competition? One of the many services that are built into my services are location scouting using real time client interaction. As soon as I snap a photo of a location, my clients get instant secure access to the photos via their own personal cloud.

This makes increases production time because if the location doesn’t fit your needs you can mark it off the list and move on to the location.

Aside from real time photo cloud uploads I also have an amazing dense photo database that gets updated daily.

I have been in the industry since 2009.

Lisa is a very competent production assistant and location scout/manager. She has great interpersonal skills and the traits to make a great production manager.

Gregory Williams

Lisa is a real go-getter. I've worked with her on several projects, including one for Nat Geo and her energy and enthusiasm really helps the shoot day go smoothly. Definitely someone you want on your team.

I have had the honor to work with Lisa Wheelous on many different projects. She is extremely professional, outgoing, and a team player. She is very dedicated and is able to work independantly without direction. The skill I admire most about her is her ability to be flexible to any given situation. She can problem solve quickly and easily. She always gives a project 100%. I would highly recommend her for any project you may have in mind. Please feel free to contact me for any additional info
