LA comes to London

When Location Manager Nick Williams asked me to come and assist him on a shoot in Los Angeles – i didn’t question that he might be joking! I thought … that sounds reasonable, we have the contacts, we location manage, we produce all over the world ‘Yes of course I’ll assist!’ I soon learned that I was to throw on a vest, wrap up in thermals, put my long-johns on, as we were really shooting at a London location dressed as LA! (Very funny Nick!) But what a fantastic day it panned out to be, plus we saved money on flights! Special shout out to our top Locator Angus for finding this fantastic, film friendly location whilst out scouting!

…in came art department with palm trees, ‘Los Angeles Times Newspaper’ stands, in drove the limo, the yellow taxi, and out rolled the red carpet – even the paparazzi showed up! (Also known as #extras!) The weather may not have been quite the Californian climate but the lighting guys quickly turned this around! Los Angeles had officially come to London!

Thanks to all the crew and cast; due to everybody’s hard work we even wrapped early for once #4pm! We will keep you posted as to when this is released!

Follow us on twitter @LocateProds to see what we are up to….

Locate Goes Fishing

The Locate gang downed tools and headed to Brighton for a day of fishing last week. We spent a glorious morning scouting the best fishing spots off the South coast. Queen of the sea was Holly Charlton – who managed to catch fish even whilst napping!

Wandsworth BEST

The Locate team has had an extra member recently – in the form of Rakeem Caesar. Aspiring director Rakeem came to us via Wandsworth BEST, a Wandsworth organisation which helps young people in the borough gain skills and work experience in industry. He was out and about in proper production style and had a nice introduction to the lovely crew hours!

We’d also like to say a big thank you to Andy Knights for helping out and giving Rakeem a taste of the world of production.

X

We produced the new Halifax X logo for Chris Frazer Smith with Adam and Eve. With Halifax employees being brought in from all over the UK, Alex and Angus had to mount a military-style operation getting them through central London at rush hour. Once they were there though they had a pretty nice day lined up – with massages and mini-golf in between shots!
