Course content

Train to scout and manage the perfect location for your productions.

This course - created due to industry demand - is designed to thoroughly train you in Location Management, and all the vital roles that lie within it.

"If you want to work in Locations this is the best real working course you can get onto." - Steve Price Brown, course graduate

The Locations Department consists of three primary roles: Location Manager, Assistant Location Manager and Location Scout. They work closely with directors, producers, cinematographers, assistant directors and designers, providing all the information and support necessary for a successful location shoot from initial brief, finding ideal locations for the shoot, negotiating fees, terms and conditions as well as managing locations during the production and filming periods to wrap and reinstatement.

We’ll ensure that you leave the course with all the relevant practical experience - including working with the latest on-set COVID protocols - and some valuable contacts for starting out in the professional world.
