Here’s a behind the scene’s short video form the TV ad I did for Lancashire Magazine a few weeks back, I’ve never done anything ‘blue screen’ before. There’s a bit in the advert about a gold bar and we had a proper gold bar on set, with a fella charged with guarding it so I couldn’t pocket it. There’s also a bit where I stick my face in a plate full of mashed potato. I wonder if that bit will make it to the final cut.
Commercials can be stressful as you’ve got to get a lot done on a tight schedule, this ad was was shot by White Noise, and they were great. Really easy going. The ad is going out on Granada telly on the ITV channels in late August and through the late summer.
