Recce /ˈrɛki/[1] is a production term used in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa which refers to a pre-filming visit to a location to determine its suitability for shooting, including access to necessary facilities and assessment of any potential lighting or sound issues, and is closely related to location scouting. In the US, the term "site survey" or "tech scout" is commonly used with the same meaning.

Origins[edit]

"Recce" is borrowed from the military expression of the same name, which derived from "reconnaissance" in the noun sense and "reconnoitre" in the verb sense.

Radio and TV[edit]

The term "recce" is also used to refer to scouting recording or broadcast locations for radio and TV production.
