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. A "wildtrack" is soundtrack sounds recorded without images for use in post-production at a later point. 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.
