          • As Location Scout for Ethnew’s Ghost productions, I sourced a range of locations across Central and surrounding London to act as a number of locations for the feature production. Ghost is a horror, and the characters are all of a wealthy background so I had a certain aesthetic to adhere to and a budget to run parallel to that. My job involved finding the locations, contacting the appropriate people, arranging recce’s for myself and Head of Departments, presenting my findings to the Directorial team and arranging contracts to pin the final locations down. Essentially being the point of contact for crew and the location and ensuring both were happy.
