  5. 5. What is a recce? Recce’s are usually carried out by a location manager before production. It is a chance to visit and assess the filming location prior to filming. The recce consists of a short report and photographs of the location (key details and filming angles, power points, source of lighting, potential issues). You are the EYES of the Director. What you are looking for: • Power sources • Lighting (is it suitable?) • Health and safety concerns • Access and availability (do you need to hire/book, do you need a key, is it restricted from the public, transport details) • Key details (what makes this location special?! Is there an amazing backdrop/angle for a particular scene) • Sound (Does it echo? Is their noise disruption – traffic, music etc that might effect the recording?)
