On the big screen this year we have been able to spot loads of artists in amazing period costumes, from Victorian Farmers in Far From the Madding Crowd to dapper 1960s gangsters in Legend. We’ve also been entertained and laughed out loud with our artists in some hilarious scenes in Man Up and the Bad Education Movie.
If you’ve tuned into your TV any time over the past year you will have no doubt seen the hard work of Mad Dog 2020, with artists from our London, Midwest and North books popping up in so many great dramas and comedies. Some of our favourites this year have been: Cucumber, Wolf Hall, Outlander, You, Me and the Apocalypse, Casualty, Hinterland/ Y Gwyll, Ordinary Lies, Toast of London, Lady Chatterley’s Lover, 35 Dwirnod, Midwinter of the Spirit and This is England ’90 to name but a few!
In between these programmes you may also have spotted our artists in some really inventive and creative adverts, including: Airwaves, Virgin, Malboro Lights, Adidas, Burberry, Cadburys, Colgate, Garnier, H&M, Land Rover, Doritos, L’Oreal, Armani, Robinsons. And most notably we had 250 on The Trainline commercial, it must have been a full train!
Over Christmas, in between all the presents and turkey, make sure you keep an eye out for more of our Mad Dog 2020 artists on your screens in the Sherlock Christmas Special (see the trailer here) and what looks to be another great murder mystery, And Then There Were None (see the trailer here).
Looking ahead to 2016 we are already beginning to get a sneak peak at more productions that our artists have been a part of. The first glimpse at the leads of Houdini and Doyle was released recently (follow this link to read more here) and we can’t wait to see our artists in period costumes and some really intriguing story lines.
But the talk of the office and most of the internet has been the release of the Legend of Tarzan trailer, starring an amazing cast, including: Alexander Skarsgard, Margot Robbie, Christoph Waltz and Samuel L Jackson. From the trailer it has hard to believe that so much of it was shot here in England. Mad Dog 2020 was so proud to be the main agent on such a huge production and we really can’t wait for July to be able to see it.
So roll on 2016 and even more exciting projects!
