46 • LMGI COMPASS | Fall 2021 through the eyes of creators. How they see the world as it is and how it can be enhanced – either through capturing the world with technology or enhancing and creating other worlds through visual technology. This is a story about the journey of young creators living in the present, challenging themselves to create something new for the future. What the locations say about story: The locations highlight the visual mindset of the creative artist who is inspired by overcoming challenges in nature. Locations to watch for: Blá© alla Vegur "Blue Mountain Road" at the beginning of the commercial really breaks the ice for the visuals for the feel of the commercial. Eldhraun "Fire Lava" The green moss creates the mindscape of the creative artist. Nesjavelli Majestic Mountainscape presents the obstacles anyone can overcome. PLAY NEW, NIKE SLM/Scout Florian Schura/ LMGI LM/Scout Michael Dennehy/ LMGI – LA LM/Scout Michael Fricke – LA LM/Scout Travis Diener – LA Scout Steve Kovacic – LA LM/Scout Alistair Volk – UK Nike Play New is an empowering fi lm (shot on 16mm and 35mm) that celebrates participating, showing up and trying out something new. It's a powerful and positive representation of ordinary people from diff erent backgrounds being physically active. It emphasizes the importance of trying hard, without necessarily having to achieve the heights of unrealistic ideals we're so often asked to aspire to. The one-minute commercial is made of scenes showing ordinary people, as well as a few celebrities—World Champion sprinter Dina Asher- Smith, WNBA star Sabrina Ionescu, Paralympic international medalist Blake Leeper, and award-winning musical artist Rosalía – trying out new sports, without fear of failure. What the location managers say: "This commercial was 100 percent fi lmed on location. The locations were largely walk-in locations, with very little (if any) production design changes. The locations are completely integral to every scene and sets the mood and feeling for each sporting activity." Locations to watch for: The Boxing Ring, Lincoln Heights feels intimidating and professional, and adds to honest nervousness of the young boy featured. The Batting Cages, Chatsworth is located in a warehouse that's shared with a bunch of shipping containers, lending an incredibly original look to the baseball setting without any need for additional production design. High Dive, Rose Bowl Jumping off the 10m high dive provides high production value and a true sense of overcoming one's fears. Parking Structure, Eagle Rock Plaza BMX rider falling over the handlebars in a parking structure showcases beautiful brutalist commercial architecture that makes for a very convincing location where one might practice BMX stunts and therefore fi ts the story. The Golf Course & Soccer Field – England OUTSTANDING FILM COMMISSION BATH FILM OFFICE The historic city of Bath gave unprecedented access and unwavering support to the fi rst season of the hit Netflix period drama Bridgerton. They needed to capture the right look and feel of the period and knew this was the right place for them. Filming in Bath might have only been 13 days of the overall 25- week shoot of the season, but more than 70 scenes across 14 diff erent iconic locations were fi lmed in the city alone. From the fi rst point of contact, all the way until the end, the team at Bath Film Offi ce went above and beyond to help accommodate the production. During several diff erent occasions – often with multiple units fi lming simultaneously involving road closures, drone permissions, Sony campaign Nike campaign
