London. Next Stop…? John Ford - Head of Film by John Ford, Head of Film

[Skip to Content]

It’s a good job that we’re based 10 minutes from the centre of London. Occasionally I get the chance to do some filming in the city centre and even make it to the occasional meeting…

…however, this year so far I seem to have spent more time filming abroad. In the last few months I’ve been in Ghana filming graduates, Paris filming presenters, Sweden filming shoppers and Switzerland filming CEOs!

We’ve just been booked for Paris, New York, Hong Kong, Dubai, Tanzania and Bangladesh.

To date we’ve filmed in over 42 different countries and almost all continents – we’re just waiting for someone to send us to Antarctica!

So yeah, it’s a good to be a Production Company in London!! But perhaps we need to set up an international division…

EDIT: in 2017 we’ve continued the trend of jet setting and globe trotting! We’ve visited Iceland for an award winning female recruitment video, travelled the US for a suite of films about the music scene and headed to Brazil to explore innovative entrepreneurs. in 2018, our talented team are looking likely to be setting off again… Hong Kong, I’ve missed you!
