stephan Fleet’s ad­vice to scout­ing lo­ca­tions in pre-pro­duc­tion

Take photo ref­er­ence. I’ve found that the best cam­era on a scout is my iphone us­ing the Artemis viewfinder app. I quickly im­port the pho­tos into Ever­note and write brief short­hand de­scrip­tions for what is go­ing on. Of­ten times I mea­sure things so I can model rooms for pre­vis. I also use a Struc­ture Sen­sor at­tached to my ipad, along with their lit­tle ar­chi­tec­ture wide-an­gle lens. For in­door en­vi­ron­ments, this lets me get quick low-res OBJ scans that I can im­port into Cin­ema 4D to quickly model stuff to scale.
