Our ever-expanding Manchester based production team have moved into an industrial chic, centrally located production office in the heart of the city.
Only a 2 hour train or a 1 hour flight from London, and with close access to Liverpool, Leeds, Sheffield and Newcastle, this the perfect base for our production team, giving them access to key locations, crew and talent throughout England and Wales.
Our Manchester HQ is the new home of our high-end footballer work like Emre Can’s collaboration with H&M, EA FIFA 19 with Kevin de Bruyne and Paulo Dybala, Paul Pogba for ESPN, and Zlatan Ibrahimović for Samsung, music promos for the likes of James Arthur and Anne-Marie, and a great base for producing celebrity campaigns in London such as Robbie Williams for Cafe Royal.
Manchester is the ideal gateway to producing a variety of campaigns across the UK, and it's also an international hotspot, with direct flights to the likes of London, Paris, Berlin, Stockholm, Singapore and New York. Working from this English hub has been a huge success for us throughout 2018, so we have opened this buzzing new office for our growing team to maximise production support for our clients.
"I’m thrilled to have such a strong in-house production team based in Manchester, working in collaboration with our offices in Edinburgh and London too."
HEAD OF PRODUCTION, LS PRODUCTIONS
Led by Head of Production Jo Coombes, team Manchester consists of Senior Producer Abi Atkinson, Production Manager Callum Crozier and Production Assistant Chris Gainsbury, plus our talented family of freelancers and collaborators.
Our brand new Head of Production Jo has a huge wealth of experience; she has been working in the advertising industry for over a decade - with most of that time spent in production, shooting campaigns and films all over the UK and internationally, working for the likes of Park Pictures, Acne, Caviar, Iconoclast and Holmes Production. Most notably, in 2014, Jo launched industry-wide sustainability initiative AdGreen, the go-to resource supporting the advertising world’s transition to environmentally sustainable production methods.
Name any element of the production industry, and Abi has either done it herself or knows a dozen people who do, and she knows Manchester like the back of her hand. From car commercials and fashion campaigns to celebrity collaborations and indie band promos, Abi expertly leads the team on set and in the office, juggling locations, planning and logistics to facilitate any creative brief, and never without her signature sense of humour and bags of enthusiasm.
With a background in video production, specialising in sport and cars, and a creative knack for shooting and editing film, Callum is a real asset to the Manchester team. Callum has helped coordinate high-spec film and stills productions with us, including Anne-Marie and James Arthur’s music video for ‘Rewrite the Stars’ from The Greatest Showman: Reimagined, plus massive campaigns with top Premier League footballers, including FIFA 19 with De Bruyne and Dybala.
Chris has experience in a huge breadth of brands, agencies and production companies as a freelance PA, so joined LS back in September of 2018 to hit the ground running assisting our growing production team on a vast range of jobs, including our latest campaign for Porsche’s 718T models shot on the Isle of Skye, and a huge upcoming celebrity beauty campaign which we’ll be releasing later this year.
"We’ve produced some amazing work over the past year. I’m really excited for us to be based in this amazing new space so we can bring even more great clients over to shoot in England.”
