2015 California On Location Awards Finalsts Announced

There is no Emmy or Oscar category available for Film and Television Location professionals.  However, once a year, we do get recognized by the California On Location Awards (COLA Awards.)  

Today, nominations for the 2015 COLA Awards were announced and I'm proud to say that our Location Team for "True Detective" is one of the finalists.  I worked on the show for seven months last year.  In that time, we shot all eight episodes of the season like back-to-back feature films.  It was a huge and ambitious undertaking.

Although this past season was widely panned by critics and audiences for varying reasons, that in no way detracts from the immense effort that all of us put forth in scouting far and wide for gritty and unique locations for the show.  Scouting took place all over Southern California and points North and once those locations were secured, coordination to make filming happen was an immense task all its own.  Congrats to everyone nominated for the COLAs. Because more often, we aren't noticed at all, but on-location filming is an important component to giving life to film and television productions.
