While much of your work selecting a film location should focus on finding a space that fits the atmosphere of your film, you will also need to be honest with yourself about whether or not you will be able to successfully film in the locations you are considering.

If these elements are essential to the ambiance of your film you will need to consider how you can set up your film equipment to capture the dialogue without bringing in too many distractions from the background. It is often easier to select a quieter location and later edit in the background elements necessary for the shot.
