Professional Course in Location Management

Central Film School: Academy of Intelligent Media

A Location Manager’s role is to imagine, find and clear a location that is ‘perfect’ for the needs of the script, the director, the shooting unit and the production budget. A perfect location is one where the director has the ability to shoot at 360 degrees if required, with silence, while also keeping all the facilities the unit is ever likely to need close at hand. This two-week course is aimed at people who are organised, thoughtful, proactive self-starters, capable of working on their own and who want to become skilled in this absolutely vital area of production.

This course will provide a thorough and practical understanding of the role, function and responsibilities of the Location Manager and his/her team – including location finding, planning, legal aspects and working safely, elements of budgeting and communicating clearly with the production office and the on-set crew.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Articulate the role and responsibilities of the location manager and his/her team
  • Collaborate with directors, cinematographers and art directors to identify appropriate locations
  • Risk assess a location in terms of health and safety considerations and site logistics
