In this week’s episode of the Filmmaker Toolkit Podcast, we talked to location manager Shane Haden about working with writer/director Steven Zaillian to find the right locations for the miniseries, and the research that went into making this credible portrayal of the prison system.
Haden also brings us behind the scenes of what’s involved with being a location manager, the challenge of shooting in New York City and how he got his start working in the locations department.
