On the strength of 'Rogue One,' the Royal Film Commission of Jordan was named outstanding film commission.
Hidden Figures and La La Land were honored for outstanding locations in a period film and locations in a contemporary film, respectively, at the Location Manager Guild International Awards on Saturday at Warner Bros.' Steve J. Ross Theater.
“It’s the content that inspires us to find the locations to bring out what’s on [the writer’s page],” said Steve Beimler, accepting for La La Land. Also accepting for the L.A.-set musical, Robert Foulkes thanked especially the areas that assisted with the film, from Hermosa Beach, for use of the pier, to Griffith Park, the location for the magic hour dance.
Accepting the award for Hidden Figures, location manager Dan Gorman thanked "the women of NASA--Katherine, Dorothy and Mary," as well as director Ted Melfi, production designer Wynn Thomas and many more involved in the production.
