A Guide to Location Scouting and Other L.A. Events

A Guide to Location Scouting and Other L.A. Events

from: Sean J. Miller, Backstage.com

Awards season is over so it’s time to start thinking about your next project. If your next project is a Web series, indie film or short, think back to awards season. Why relive that belabored pantomime? Because some of last season’s most honored films, including Oscar winners such as “American Sniper” and “Whiplash,” were shot around L.A.

Want to capture the same on-location magic? Check out the screening of “Los Angeles Plays Itself,” a documentary made up of clips from films shot on location in the Southland. A Q&A with filmmaker Thom Andersen follows the Feb. 27 event, which is being held at Union Station’s Fred Harvey Room. More details are available here.
