Andy Wee Shanghai

The recent launch of the CX-4, Mazda's Asian variant of American CX-30, to both Chinese and Japanese clients has been a linguistics test for Andy's team. The shoot has gone from studio to city to mountain roads, all in a week's work.

Andy has worked with numerous agencies, and his team is able to speak both English and most of Asian languages, and thus able to communicate clearly with everyone involved in both pre-production and post-production.

Harniman London

"Just released, the Ford 2020 ‘Backbone of Britain’ campaign took us on location all over the UK prior to lockdown with both GTB agency and Locate production teams, capturing the essence of people at work and the latest Nugget camper.

‘Every Star Needs Its Extras’ started this year in freezing cold January shooting the Vauxhall Grandland and Crossland SUVs press campaign (and a lone warrior!) at a castle in the stunning landscapes of Scotland with their agency McCann.

Lockdown life gave us an unexpected chance to collate our ‘Analogue Archive’ on IG - previously unseen images from the heady days of rig shots and 5x4 film.

Glad to be back with the team now shooting again!"

Jeff Ludes Photos Los Angeles

Like the rest of the world, Jeff and his team have learned ways to adapt the way they work, to keep everyone safe on set.  A few key changes have been put in place to keep everyone masked-up and well-spaced, but with tools like remote screen sharing for those not on set, shoots have been moving forward smoothly.  You’ll be seeing those results soon, once embargo dates have passed.

Looking back to earlier in the year, one of Jeff’s last projects before lockdown began was for Chevrolet, with their Suburban and Tahoe SUVs. With 2 weeks of shooting in Southern California, the team came away with a huge library of images to choose from.

And once lockdown was lifted, Jeff hit the road on a personal project with a Mini Countryman and a pair of real-life roommates. It was a great way to get ready for shooting in this new environment.  

"We are fortunate to be shooting again, and extra fortunate to be joined by such a caring and conscientious team. We hope to see you on set soon!"
