Episode 25: Craig Stewart / Location, Location, Location (Scout)
Craig Stewart is a location scout. His role is one of the many unsung heroes of the commercial production. As the name implies, Craig’s primary job is to find the locations used as the backdrops you see on television, in movies and in magazines and advertisements.
Craig describes his rise from the lowly production assistant position all the way up to the successful business he has owned and operated for decades. Craig discusses the ins and outs of dealing with permits, local police and the occasional “Type A” homeowner.
In a world that has become increasingly abstract and digital, Craig Stewart still lives in a world of tangible real estate.
