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.
