Locations are places for video filming, which
are selected according to the scenario. It can be both indoors and outdoors.
The location manager is responsible for selecting locations and leasing arrangements. Preliminary
photography is done, on the basis of which notes are then made to the storyboard and animatic.
So the director and director of photography can calculate in advance how to set the light, where
the actors will work, what angles to choose for shooting.
Number of locations
For almost all commercials, a few locations are sufficient, while a large number of locations may
be needed to create a particular artistic effect. Before the director writes the locations into
the script, he will definitely have to visit all the locations in order to choose camera angles,
distances and light.
Remember the importance of obtaining all necessary filming permits.
The shooting process in the premises allows you to organize the surrounding space, light and
sound. Shooting in nature or city streets, you depend on the weather, time of day and events
around. Take this into account when shooting certain shots, because at the editing stage it may
turn out that the shadow from your actors falls a little differently, and the transition simply
does not stick.
