Today, Gabriel of San Telmo Productions just set out to do location scouting for “The Nazi Hunters” a documentary series produced by NextFilms of Toronto Canada. Often, foreign TV crews want to resolve things in the moment (hence, the term production “fixer” meaning you solve problems in the moment) but a lot of times it makes sence to do location scouting beforehand.
For example, for the show “The Nazi Hunters” which centers on the Eichmann abduction in Buenos Aires, a lot of the locations no longer exist or are not fully known. Trying to find a house that looks similar to the safe house where the Nazi criminal was held before being taken to Israel in the moment would take too much time.
A few days of planning can save precious hours during a shoot, and in this case the crew will be here for very little time.
