Rando Schmook’s Big Adventure: Week One – Location Scouting

BEAU will be starting a new series on Rando Schmook’s adventures in St. George, Utah.  Many of you may know he is on the set of a new Hollywood movie and will be sending us updates on all the excitement that transpires in the crazy world of making movies. 

digital video media production programThe updates will be primarily posted on the BEAU Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/BEAUslc so be sure to check in and see what he is doing.  The posts will not only be interesting (everyone knows Rando, our executive chair of crea always has an interesting story to tell), but also informative for anyone who wants to become a filmmaker.  BEAU’s Digital Video and Media Production program uses many of the techniques and strategies that big time filmmakers use to shoot heir movies.

Here is Rando’s first installment:

Week 1 – Sunny with highs in the 60s

Monday, we had our first production meeting, met one another, and set up the office.  The production designer and I are in a private office overlooking the stage, while the art department will be in a large collective room (to promote collaboration during the process of making the film), with set designer, set decorator and props.

Tuesday-Wednesday, we went out and about on our first scouting mission to find ideal filming locations.  We saw some local streets that might play as small town Main Streets and a few interiors that we might modify to become other specific locations. The work to start telling the story has begun.

Thursday, we met with the director to tell him our thoughts and brainstorm some ideas to start the filming process. I enjoy these meeting the most.  We get innovative and brainstorm, one casual remark generates an offbeat idea that leads to another and the next thing you know we just made the film look better and maybe cost less too. The communication and thought provoking dialogue with all the people in the filmmaking process is critical to the success of the movie.

Friday, we worked on more script breakdown and research. The planning process of the film is also a critical element of its ultimate success.

Remember to keep an eye out for Rando’s updates on Facebook.
