Just a quick note today. Something fairly interesting and out of the ordinary happened Sunday night. I heard a noise and saw some lights out on the street in front of our London house, and about that time the doorbell rang. WhenI went to the door, I stepped out to find a bright light shining in my eyes, and a young man greeting me, who asked if his group could film part of a commercial at our doorway. Always eager to be helpful, and curious, of course about a commercial being filmed, I gave them permission and then went outside to watch them make their magic.

It took them about 45 minutes to get about 4 seconds of a shot. He was modeling a jacket, designed by a young woman who was with them. I kept trying to read the name on the jacket later after I took the picture, but even though she told me the name of her design company, I can't really recall, nor read exactly what it says on his jacket. I think it must be Jacq-ster, or something like that.

Here's the itsy-bitsy clip that I took of them filming. Didn't this actor really know how to strut?

This just goes to show that you need to keep your eyes and ears open here in London. The whole city is a stage and you never know when the actors are going to play out their roles.


  1. Definitely have to keep your eyes and ears alert ... funny that they used your doorway :-)

  2. Pretty cool to see all that happen right there! I worked on a magazine shoot one time, and I could not believe how long it took to get even one shot! :)

  3. The model looks so relaxed and cool - maybe you'll see the jacket in a shop and think Wow! my front door was the backdrop for it's sucess.
    Very interesting night. xx

  4. What a surpise it must have been for you!
    That's true, a shot which takes up an hour to make is in a TV for 4 seconds than:)
    Have a good week!

  5. That sounds like a fun happening right outside your door!! We always have alot of filming in my work area and it does take hours for just the smallest of scenes. Have a happy week, Debi! xxoo :)

  6. What a strange thing to happen! I must say your door is very stylish so I can see why they chose it!

    Hope you enjoy the rest of the week and happy St Patrick's day!

    Best wishes,

  7. My daughter would think he was oh, so, handsome.
