This scouting template illustrates how new online resources can aid the process of finding the perfect environment for a plot or shot’s exposition. Jarvis breaks down a series of critical steps used to evaluate potential locations. These include considering locations utilized in the past, researching new locations online, working with film commissions and hiring location scouts.
