I am the location scout for the show Breaking Bad AMA
Hello my name is Alex. I work as an Assistant Location Manager for TV and films that shoot in New Mexico.
I was the location scout for the pilot, season 4 and season 5 of Breaking Bad.
The responsibilies of the location department include: Scouting and finding options for shooting locations; bringing the director and producers to each option and signing up the ones that they like; notifying neighbors, signing up base camps, and obtaining appropriate permits for shooting; arranging street closures and help from local police and fire departments; preparing the sets for shooting and standing by on set to be the liaison for the movie to the property owners; and drawing maps and hanging directional signs to get the crew to set. Also we set up a/c's and heaters for the crew, pick up their trash and clean their shit.
Personally on Breaking Bad, I was primarily the full time scout, usually working in prep for the upcoming episodes.

...On a side note, I'm also the creator of the wildly unpopular webcomic Tippy and Friends. AMA about that too, if you want.
EDIT: It's getting late so I'm probably going to crash here in a few. I hoped you all found this interesting. It's very cool to work on something that is so loved, and thank you all so much for the kind words.
If you want to follow my futher adventures in the movie world, I twitter @tippyandfriends and I'm on instagram @alekog
FINAL EDIT: I dedicated today's Tippy cartoon to all of you. Thanks again for all your great questions!
