Using Mobile Apps for Site Surveys

Episode 90 - 01

Knowing the ins and outs of your location is a very important step in successful productions. Site surveying helps you identify potential problems before your production takes place. In this week’s episode of DSLR Video Tips, Robbie and I demonstrate how to use mobile apps to make your site survey more effective. From weather conditions to the location of the sun, the more prepared you are, the more successful your production will be.

In this lesson you’ll learn how to

  • Use your phone as a view finder
  • Gauge the weather for shooting conditions
  • Find details including the coordinates of your location
  • Use your phone as a professional recorder and record reference sound

Check out both the sample video above and this week’s complete episode on lynda.com. We’ll help make sure your next location shoot is as worry-free as possible.
