3D Location Scouting


Film Location Guide

Matterport 3D

Traditional film production is bulky, costly, and time consuming. Many production companies are working the same way they have since filmstock was the industry standard. Even though digital is dominating the market, the film industry underutilized the available resources.

It’s not uncommon for film production location-scouting to be an expensive and time consuming process. Mr. Monson provides a way to scout locations by offering affordable Virtual Walkthroughs in both 3D and in Virtual Reality.

It’s now possible to explore countless locations from the other side of the world.

Lockdown the location, craft your content around the locations unique features, and gain access to a library of content for each department and even use the available OBJ files in programs like After Effects.

Gain access to countless libraries of 3D content and double production speeds.
