    I’m looking for locations in the San Francisco area for a corporate shoot in June. Specifically at the moment I need a high-tech medical clinic or hospital and a large retailer or big-box store (non-grocery) – ideally it would also have a warehouse-looking distribution area also.

    We intend to shoot after hours so the locations would be deserted.

    Direct suggestions appreciated, as are recommendations of location scouts.



    Peter Kwong is a San Francisco Location Manager/Scout, who I recommend,

    Happy to help you get started with resources on file, and can discuss your schedule. Big box is a distinct challenge, but you might want to consider this:

    Hi David,

    I understand you are looking for some particular locations in the Bay Area. I have been scouting for over 17 years in California.

    I know the San Mateo Hospital is very film friendly. I would love to work with you on your project and I am sure we can find you what you need. I am a scout and manager here in the bay area.

    Please give me a call if you are interested in talking to me. You can see my work on my website at

    Thank you!
