Film Wisconsin Boot Camp is an all-day training and informational seminar and workshop whose goal is to help develop a qualified film and video work force for entry level workers in the state of Wisconsin. This is a HANDS ON seminar on scouting locations.
You will hear from leading experts on topics such as production expectations, the role of the location scout and location management. Home owners, businesses, cities, towns that want to have their location in the movies understand the process of how to work with film professionals when your home or business is used as a location. Professional photographers who want to begin the process of becoming a location scout are encouraged to attend. You will get the chance to ask questions and intermingle with leading experts.
Please be prepared to scout locations in the Cambridge area. Be prepared to be outside, bring a clipboard, notepaper, camera/cell phone if available and computer to download and transfer photos.
Our goal is for you to walk out of this seminar armed with enough information and experience to begin an understanding of production in this exciting – and growing – field.
