Location scouting:
technical. remote. creative


We go the extra mile to make sure you get the shots you need. As location scouts, we’ve worked across pretty much every continent – although we’re yet to tick Antarctica off the list.

From the moment we take the creative brief, we strive to find the perfect location while rigorously checking our finds against any specific requirements like sun or lighting angles, camera positions, access points and height, weight or width restrictions.

Our favourite part of scouting is the inspirational places we’re lucky enough to visit. From the top of both Severn Bridges to Greenham Common’s Nuclear Bunkers. From the ramparts of Stirling Castle to a British Airways training simulator in Dubai. We leave no stone unturned to find the right location for your shoot.

 
 
Ford Focus Advertising Campaign Location Scouting by Luke Jackson

Ford Focus

This was a first-of-its-kind interactive installation, promoting the all-new Ford Focus. We began with researching multiple cities, sites and permissions, and ended with providing location facilities as 540 LED video tiles were embedded in a twenty-tonne, six-metre high, 30-metre long, fully interactive public exhibition.

Assassin’s Creed

This audacious and spectacular project required us to find an iconic London location to stage a live 30m free jump on Channel 4. The broadcasting and safety management crews were massive so the location was key. We scouted a number of location solutions for this brief and permissioned a parallel back-up option just in case we encountered unforeseen health and safety issues or last minute complications.

It’s not often location managers have to recce locations in a jacket and tie, but on this one it was essential. We needed an exclusive member’s club steeped in history and, as you would imagine, these are sensitive locations. With historical and priceless artifacts, and members who were not always keen on film crews, our RAMs needed to be particularly robust.

Cadbury’s Twirl

Scouting sometimes means being on the grid, in towns and cities, rooftops or car parks, but sometimes is off the grid, looking for mountains, sand dunes, deserts and the like. No matter what it is you are looking for, or where it is, we can offer objective, informed guidance about how to tackle the brief and where to find it. This one was for quirky, interesting seaside locations where teenagers might go.
