Reel-Scout Powers Austin Locations

With a few keystrokes and clicks, location scouts can now view all of Austin’s diverse film locations without leaving their computers. The Austin Film Office recently launched Reel-Scout™, a software program designed to expedite the process of looking for sites for film, video and commercial photography.

The web-based program allows users to view photos of Austin locations on the web in an easy "click and view" format. Customized specifically for the Austin Film Office, Reel-Scout™ displays select images and detailed descriptions, as well as contact and location information. The program allows for user-friendly image sharing and printing. It also enables the Film Office to update information continuously and respond to requests almost instantly.

“In addition to being the platinum standard of location solutions for film makers,” says Gary Bond, director of the Austin Film Office, “Reel-Scout™ helps ensure that Austin remains a premier moviemaking destination.”

For five consecutive years, Austin has lead all Texas cities in film and television total production budgets and is ranked by MovieMaker magazine as the second best city in the country for moviemaking.
