An Evening of Locations!
by Brandon Grande

Scouts and Location Managers are vital in determining logistics, working with the producers, and helping to organize aspects from legal and accessibility to parking and permits. So, on August 15th, 2012, the PGA Northwest chapter gathered at Ambiance Antiques in the SOMA for "An Evening of Locations”.

Ambiance can double as a movie set in itself, and it was the perfect backdrop for the night's event. Thrown by Teri Cundall, of local prop and wardrobe directory Propville, along with the PGA Northwest, the event drew San Francisco's best location professionals.

The salon’s experts speaking included:
Sussanah Greason Robbins - Executive Director San Francisco Film Commission
Ricardo Capdepont - Location Scout
Jason Pachura - Birdman Locations Inc.
Jim Baldwin - Baldwin Production Services
and Gail Stempler - Location Scout & Manager

Each expert offered a unique perspective and everyone in attendance had plenty of interesting experiences to share. The cocktail reception to follow was a great opportunity for everyone to network and the guest’s were treated to a divine spread of wine and local cheeses while they schmoozed amongst one another. The night offered a unique opportunity to learn about the details of locations and it was huge success!
