Our location scouts take all the aforementioned into account, especially safety, when recommending any potential location. We are acutely aware military/historical projects can be even more daunting for a production company, as these productions can raise a number of additional issues and questions, such as:

  • digging allowed
  • use of pyrotechnics, special F/X, and/or blanks (noise, environmental & safety)
  • impact to the land (use of tracked vehicles such as tanks)
  • ability to modify or build 
  • historical accuracy

Nonetheless, we have successfully procured a number of unique, amazing, and unknown or never before used locations over the years, with the experience handling all the issues.    Contact Us!

Location scouting is a vital process in the pre-production phase of filmmaking and commercial photography. Once the director,  production designer and producers have decided what general kind of scenery or "look" they require, the search begins for a suitable "location" for each scene.  Our location scouts generally

seek spectacular or interesting locations beforehand. We here at Historical ConFLIX maintain a photo database of these unique locations.  We know that the suitability of a location takes into consideration many factors, including:

  • overall aesthetic
  • safety, safety, and safety!
  • logistic feasibility (including but not limited to distance from base of operations or other locations scheduled)
  • permission from and cooperation of location owner and neighbors, local government and/or law enforcement
  • ​availability of parking and facilities for talent (actors & extras) and crew.
  • availability of electrical power or feasibility of bringing in generators 
  • financial cost to production budget
  • ​size of cast, crew and/or production
