It is that time of year again when all the awards are won for the fantastic films that have been made during the last 12 months. It has been a fantastic and groundbreaking year, with the likes of Avatar, The Hurt Locker, Precious and Up all being widely received as some of the best of 2010!
The British Film industry has been represented brilliantly with some fantastic talent both young and old! An Education and its leading actress, Carey Mulligan has drawn high praise and her performance which won her nominations for both a Bafta and an Oscar! At last nights Baftas ceremony she was the lucky recipient of the Best Actress role, while also being up for best newcomer. We predict a bright future for this young British Starlet!
While Ms Mulligan was filming the award winning An Education, Unitbase.co.uk was on hand to help out with its production by sourcing a location for a one week shoot. Their scenes were based in a in a Heathrow hotel and to get this look the period style at this site was perfect! The officers mess at Inglis Barracks was used for these scenes and Camilla Stephenson, the location manager, thought it was a perfect location!
Unitbase.co.uk was also involved in some of the other British success stories of last nights Baftas. In The Loop was nominated for Outstanding British Film, but unfortunately lost out the amazing Fish Tank Nevertheless, Operations Director of Unitbase.co.uk, James Crawley oversaw In The Loop utilise some brilliant locations a the Swakleys House, a magnificent manor house, that doubled for areas of 10Downing street and some governmental offices. In The Loop also build a huge set in the studio at Inglis Barracks, which became home to some American CIA offices and home Mr Soprano himself, James Gandolfini.
The British Film industry is as strong as ever and Unitbase.co.uk loves it!
