The location of the film is vitally important to the tone of the genre of my film. Every director would say that a location could break or make the project. A location is the main aspect of the film that creates the world we all escape to when sitting in the cinema. When choosing my location I need to do a lot of location research so that I have as much information and details about the location as possible. If I don't do my location research there could be a lot of things that could potentially hamper the shooting of my film. When doing my location research their are a lot of aspects that I need to research about. Things I need to consider when choosing my Location:
Are you legally allowed to film where you want to film?
Are there any other access restrictions? (Dates, times, permissions etc.)
Is it safe to film here?
Is it physically possible to achieve what you want to achieve at this location?
Does it suit the genre of the film?
Is it interesting enough?
Will lighting be an issue?
Is it a public thoroughfare?
Is there a lot of road traffic nearby?
Will noise be an issue?
