9780240814971: Shoot on Location: The Logistics of Filming on Location, Whatever Your Budget or Experience

You have a strong vision for how your movie should look, but how do you find the perfect spot to shoot and how do you organize the complex logistics of such a shoot once you find that perfect location? In this comprehensive guide, industry veteran Kathy M. McCurdy provides everything you need to know to get out on location-from how to break down the script, public relations tips for successful location scouting, negotiating with property owners, permitting on public property, how to handle complaints, and even where to put the very unattractive port-a-potties. It also includes samples of all the different forms and contracts you'll need and breaks down everything from where to park the trucks to when you need police on the set. Filled with real-life examples and actual filming situations, Shoot on Location provides everything you need to know from scouting through the wrap.

Review:

I can personally attest to Kathy McCurdy's wisdom on her chosen subject-her book will prove invaluable to anyone interested in smoothly and cost-effectively producing a movie. It's a very readable treasure trove of useful information. -Ilt Jones, Location Manager, Hellboy, Transformers:  Revenge of the Fallen, Inception 

McCurdy's book is a joy to read and her depiction of our profession is both honest and thoughtful. -The Location Managers Guild of America (www.locationmanagers.org)

The ultimate test of a good location manager is to be invited back with open arms-this book can help make that happen for you! -Lori Balton, Location Scout,  Seabiscuit, Memoirs of a Geisha, Pirates of the Caribbean
