How to become a Creation Catalyst

JJ’S Beautiful Everyday – Location Hire

JJ’S Beautiful Everyday – Location Hire

To counterbalance a few of our recent articles regarding stately piles and cutting edge studio spaces, I thought I’d recap on another attribute that JJ Media is known for: being a supplier of practical, ‘everyday’ domestic spaces to the film and photographic industry.

As I type, our location agents are working on several shoots for household brands, from dog food ads to charity commercials. The uniting aspect in these jobs is that our clients are looking for something relatable, a home that the vast majority of the population can identify with. Using a space that upholds the familiar, or just about attainable, image of the average home helps a brand or cause resonate with its appropriate and vast audience.

For example…

Ryan’s House: 

A new addition to our portfolio of shoot locations this year. Most recently Ryan’s House was used as a location in an online campaign for Covent Garden soups. The warm, homely interiors were the ideal setting for a film promoting one of life’s greatest comfort foods. Rich colours and original features appear throughout making the property feel like a cumulative effort of each era from the Victorian era to the early 2000s.

Drake House: 

From one of our newest shoot locations, to one of our old favourites. Drake House has consistently accommodated shoots with JJ Media since its launch as the outstanding fusion of an example of the family home of the 21st century and a practical shoot space. Matt-painted kitchen cupboards, a moveable island and an untypical, wide kitchen-dining-living space on the ground floor has ensured the success of this location.

Patton House:

From the outset, Patton House has been giving location managers working on TV commercials the eye. This modernised, spacious Victorian house offers off-road parking, lots of light and good-sized garden. Despite its generous proportions, the location manages to remain attainable and homely thanks to warm colours, cosy furniture and an array of personal items (including a jam-packed bookshelf, and a cork-board crammed with notices and pictures).

Walm:

Located at a desirable address in North London, Walm negotiates a comfortable position of being an enviably large property that grounds itself with traditional furniture and decor that doesn’t try too hard to be young and trendy. The mature, tasteful decor has seen many film productions breathe a sigh of relief for its unwavering resistance to short-lived trends and its firm grip on the image of a British home of the late 20th Century and early 21st Century.

Dingley Place: 

Also a popular location of a different kind. Dingley Place is no doubt a fine example of a contemporary living space with an pleasingly unusual layout, but its not-overwhelming size and welcoming nature has ensured it’s found itself a role in the locations industry as a go-to bachelor pad or as a tidy space that offers an selection of backdrops for fashion shoots. The variety of work that the location receives shows that an apartment doesn’t have to be a lofty, other-worldly penthouse to attract shoots.
