chapter  19
Distant Location
Pages 8

A simplistic description of a distant location is when

you’re working too far away from home to sleep in your

own bed at night. It’s far enough from your home office/

company/studio as to necessitate some amount of travel

(usually by air), having to house cast and crew, having

to set up a temporary base of operation and ship in any-

thing (equipment, film, wardrobe, props, etc.) that can’t

be found locally. Filming away from your home base but

within the same country would be considered a distant

location. Filming in another country would be an interna-

tional or foreign location (which you can read all about in

the next chapter).
