Part 1 Location Scout

INCLUDED IN THIS LESSON: 11 minutes of instructional video with Shane Hurlbut, ASC during the location scout prepping for the Swing Vote night interiors 360-dolly scene. Detailed written breakdown, scene excerpt from Swing Vote screenplay, and previsualization techniques.

IN THIS LESSON YOU WILL LEARN: In this lesson, we describe the value of a 360-degree dolly shot, what it conveys in a scene, and how to properly execute it, starting with the location scout. We use a scene from the film Swing Vote as our source material to replicate for this lesson and consider elements like location and lighting for our night interior setup. Taking what’s on the page of the script, we apply it to our location, examine lighting motivation and potential sources, while putting together an initial plan to take into the tech scout. ENGLISH SUBTITLES INCLUDED.
