MR. LOCATION SCOUT: INDUSTRY INSIGHTS New Tools for Location Scouting
February 1, 2023In the past, location scouting for film, TV, and commercials was a time-consuming and labor-intensive process. However, new tools and technologies have emerged that have made it easier for scouts to do their job. One of the most important tools for location scouts today is the smartphone. With a high-resolution camera and video capabilities, a smartphone allows scouts to take photos and videos of potential locations on the fly. Additionally, there are various apps available that make it easy for scouts to organize and share location information with the production team. One such app is "Shot Lister" which allows scouts to take notes and photos of locations, and create a list of potential spots for the production team to review. Another helpful app is "Sunseeker", a solar tracking and compass app that provides the user with hourly directional sun position intervals for preset shoot days so you can schedule your days more accurately for filming on a future date. Yet another tool that has become increasingly popular among scouts is the phone gimbal. A phone gimbal is a small device that attaches to a smartphone and helps to stabilize the camera while shooting video. This allows scouts to capture smooth and steady footage of potential locations, even when they're on the move. GoPros are also a popular tool among location scouts because of their small size and ability to shoot high-quality video. The compact camera can be easily mounted on a helmet, bike, or gimbal, allowing scouts to capture unique angles and perspectives of potential locations. Drones have also become a valuable tool for location scouts. They allow scouts to capture aerial footage of potential locations, which can be especially useful for scouting large properties or landscapes. Drones are already equipped with a camera and can take both photos and videos, which can be used to quickly survey large areas and identify potential locations for a shoot. Even a small inexpensive drone can save a lot of time and effort in providing multiple options for the professional drone operators when they arrive on shoot day. All these tools have the potential to revolutionize the way location scouts work. They allow scouts to capture high-quality photos and videos, share location information, and quickly survey large areas, which can save a lot of time and effort. It has become easier for location scouts to effectively plan out the next shoot location. With the help of these tools, scouts can quickly identify the best locations to bring a script or story to life. In summary, today's technology plays an important role in location scouting for film, TV, and commercials. With the aid of smartphones, phone gimbals, GoPros and drones, scouts can easily capture high-quality photos and videos, share location information and quickly survey large areas, saving time and effort for the production team. These tools have made it easier for scouts to plan out shoot locations, create a more efficient and accurate location scouting process.

GUILLERMO DEL TORO TO RECEIVE ART DIRECTORS GUILD
January 26, 2023Honor to be Presented at the 27TH ADG Awards, February 18, 2023 LOS ANGELES, January 23, 2023 - The Art Directors Guild (ADG, IATSE, Local 800) will honor multi- Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro with the prestigious William Cameron Menzies Award , celebrating his visually striking and emotionally rich body of work. The ceremony will take place at the 27th Annual Art Directors Guild's Excellence in Production Design Awards on Saturday, February 18, 2023, at the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown. The announcement was made today by Guild President Nelson Coates, ADG, and Awards Producers Michael Allen Glover, ADG, and Megan Elizabeth Bell, ADG. The William Cameron Menzies Award honors an individual of extraordinary distinction and exceptional contribution to the art of motion pictures or television, a champion of production design, who therefore merits special acknowledgment for outstanding service to the entertainment industry. Past recipients include Robert Osborne, John Musker and Ron Clements, Syd Mead, and Denis Villeneuve. "Guillermo del Toro has stunningly brought humanity to non-human characters and full-fledged existence to environments which could be seen as devoid of life by integrating strong narrative imagery into his collaborations with production designers," said Coates. "The Art Directors Guild is thrilled to celebrate his captivating work, which has indelibly pushed the bounds of production design to new heights." Guadalajara-born writer, director, producer, and author Guillermo del Toro is among the most creative and visionary artists of his generation. He first gained recognition for writing and directing Cronos, which premiered at the 1993 Cannes Film Festival, where it won the Mercedes Benz Award, and went on to earn more than 20 international awards. Del Toro's most noted films include Pan's Labyrinth , which garnered Academy Awards for Art Direction, Cinematography, and Makeup and ranked in more than 35 critics' polls for "best film of the year," and The Shape of Water , which won the Venice International Film Festival's Golden Lion as well as Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Production Design and Best Score. The filmmaker's latest project, the much-lauded Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio, continues his lifelong love of animation and stop-motion filmmaking. Additional credits include The Devil's Backbone, Hellboy, Pacific Rim, Crimson Peak, and Nightmare Alley . Del Toro is also a prolific producer of animated films and television. Among his EP credits are Kung Fu Panda 2 and 3, Puss in Boots 1 and 2 , and Rise of the Guardians ; his producing credits include The Book of Life . Del Toro has created for television, with the FX Network hit series "The Strain," based on the eponymous New York Times best-selling trilogy that he co-wrote with novelist Chuck Hogan. Additional small screen credits include "Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia," which del Toro created. The filmmaker's artistic accomplishments have inspired two museum exhibitions: the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's "Guillermo del Toro: At Home with Monsters," which traveled to museums in Minneapolis, Toronto, and Guadalajara, and the New York Museum of Modern Art's current "Guillermo del Toro: Crafting Pinocchio." The Art Directors Guild's Excellence in Production Design Awards honor excellence in production design in theatrical motion pictures, television, commercials, music videos and animated feature films. The 2023 ADG Awards will be produced by Art Director Michael Allen Glover, ADG ( Station Eleven, The Alienist, Solos ), and Production Designer Megan Elizabeth Bell, ADG ( Out of the Blue, Breakwater, American Murderer ). ADG Awards are bestowed upon productions filmed in the U.S. by producers signatory to the IATSE agreement and upon foreign entries without restrictions.
