LOCATION MANAGER/ SCOUT

ROLE:

This role will involve assisting the Producer and Director in scouting and finding locations for the film. You will be in charge of attaining all the legal permits and other clearances needed to gain proper permission for filming in particular locations. You will also take care of attaining and processing any other location permit fees. You will assist in coordinating the parking of vehicles and other logistics on location. You need to be very organised, creative and diligent.

It will be helpful if you know how to find and source locations and if you understand the process for securing contracts and dealing with location owners.

We will consider film students, people who need an opportunity to build up their experience and anyone wanting to grow in the locations department.

TIME COMMITMENT:

Filming dates are 10 – 14 December as well as roughly 12 January – 20 February (final schedule is still being set and may vary slightly). We would prefer to have the same person across the whole timeframe of the production, but if you can only do some of the dates we will still consider you. If  this is the case, then please let us know from when to when you are able to be with us. Priority will be given to anyone who can do the whole production.

The Location Manager would need to start working on this immediately, scouting for upcoming locations. We won’t stop you doing other jobs and a lot of the pre-production work you can do from home – apart from when you may need to visit and scout locations. But once we enter actual production we will need you on set with us and those will be full days.

COMPENSATION:

You will receive a Location Manager credit on the film and on IMDB. You will get 1% of profit share in the film (if you can only do certain dates, that 1% will be shared with the other LM’s). We cannot pay a money-fee, but all your costs in relation to the film will be covered. Taking this into account we will accept students and people who need to build up their experience.

APPLY: Please send an email to andrew@infromthesidemovie.com with the subject “Location Manager”.
