Each project has different space requirements, which is why in this article we present 10 types of film locations.

The search for locations on a film shoot is vital in order to know what we want to convey to the audience. Regardless of the type of location needed, it is important to know what is required of each one and in each of the scenes of the project, that is why the location scout is in charge of helping the team to find the best possible place to shoot, always taking into account the different types of shooting locations that exist.

Below, we have compiled a list of 10 types of film locations that are sure to give you ideas for your next production:

1. Apartment
