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!
Here’s a quick sneak-peak of some of the “destruction” brought to the streets of London last summer for Sky’s Super Heroes Season advert.
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.
We produced this awareness campaign for Dylan Collard on behalf of Battersea Dogs Home at the end of the year. A worthy issue – check out what BDH have to say about the lovely Staffies: http://www.battersea.org.uk/dogs/staffies.html
We’ve been busy this month working with Chris Frazer-Smith on this year’s CADD campaign.

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!
As sponsors of the AOP Awards this month, we had a stand at the AOP Exposure day on Thursday 29th September. We brought down our favourite shoot catering and spent the day meeting people from across the industry.
We’ve just done the new commercial for Strictly Come Dancing. It was a pretty big production, more of a feature film size consisting of 70 crew and 100 extras and of course the star studded dancers. Never the less, Mike and his team pulled it off beautifully and did a great job! Everyone happy including residents and borough film officers. Nice one Mike!
Alex and Becca have been up to their eyeballs in mannequins this week, shooting for Julia Fullerton-Batten. This shoot in the city seemed to get more interest from tourists than St. Paul’s!
