Location scouting in Spain

The realism, beauty or spectacularity of a scene will depend to a great extent on the place where it is filmed . That’s why the choice of locations has always been a priority when planning a shooting.

There are many factors that influence the quality of a film, but one is absolutely decisive for the final look: locations. Scouting is not only looking for beautiful spaces, it is finding the ones that fit perfectly with the script and help create an especific atmosphere.

The pre-production stage is early and it is possible that a professional such as the location manager is involved, being also the director and the production manager, as well as the assistant director, several team leaders and others such as advisors or specialists. In addition, once we have the location, the cameraman and the fixer will be very important because they will be in charge of seeing the framing and lighting necessary for each shot.

It is true that it is something that often seems to be given to the spectators and they do not stop to think about how important they are, but they are vital. In fact, there are many directors who are really methodical and scrupulous. Aspects such as a car of a certain color or model can change a location. It’s a more complicated job than it may seem at first glance.

At Crew In Motion we help you find these locations and many more depending on what you are looking for and the budget you have. Here in Spain, we have tons of wonderful locations with Spanish essence all over the country; you just have to know where to look for them.
