Sometimes, a natural location makes the most sense for a scene in your web series. When that is the case, what are your options?
- Ask your friends for location recommendations?
- Go back to a location you’ve shot at in the past?
- Tweet to see if any of your followers have any ideas?
All of these methods for finding locations can work, but it’s kind of a crap-shoot. You might get the perfect spot. You might be forced to compromise.
Want more options? This video from Izzy Video gives some awesome advice on how you can use Flickr when you’re hunting for that perfect location for your next video. Check it out:
Even if a special location isn’t necessarily for your video (for example, maybe you’re doing non-fiction work, where you’re just talking to the camera), shooting with a new, interesting location in the background can help give your videos that extra something special, setting you apart from others who are filming from their home offices. So don’t be afraid to get out there and experiment with different locations, especially now that you have a great way to find them!
