no 1 Video Company Durban has just returned from a Recce so lets chat about what occured so that you can learn and be prepared for the following:
We arrived at the location a little early. Made arrangements with the client to do a walk through together. We discussed the very first opening shot which is the reception area. We decided who the actor was going to be (All staff and residents who appear in the production must sign a release form). We have given the client the release form and have left it with them to sign.
The cameraman and I, and the client walked from room to room checking the lighting coming through the windows. Remember time of day will determine the amount of light coming through.
We also looked at props required for the production. Most props were available but there were a few things we needed to find. A recce gives you great start to the production allowing you to iron out and foresee any problems before production.
Make sure if the client has any queries that you able to assist them. Everyone must be happy before production starts.
Well thats it for now , hope this blog helps you with tackling a recce on location. Be thourough.
