Avengers Age of Ultron locations supervisor talks Johannesburg

29 April 2015

Jamie Lengyel, Supervising Location Manager on Age of Ultron. had nothing but praise for Johannesburg after filming a major action sequence there for Avengers – Age of Ultron with Moonlighting Films last year.

He was interviewed for The Location Guide along with Exec Producer Jeremy Latcham: 

“The ambition from the start was to go global, with a broader visual canvas that could take the franchise to new markets,” explains Jamie Lengyel, Supervising Location Manager on Age of Ultron. Marvel chose Johannesburg in South Africa as the filming location for a key action sequence where Iron Man is tasked with subduing The Hulk. Moonlighting Films assisted the shoot locally.

“Johannesburg is a melting pot of African culture and is very interesting visually,” Lengyel observes: “It has a great skyline, which was important as we were planning lots of aerial shots. The local authorities were very helpful.”

“When you’re bringing a movie of this size, you need a government that’s going be welcoming, co-operative and give you the access to the city that you need,” adds executive producer Jeremy Latcham.

“We looked all over Africa for this sequence and Johannesburg was clearly the place to be,” Latcham continues: “It had the look and access to the streets we needed. It was really film-friendly. In the downtown streets we flew helicopters, crashed cars and exploded massive pyrotechnics. It’s really exciting and nice to find governments that want filmmakers to come and show off their city and that’s what we have done and I think the people of Johannesburg are going to be thrilled to see their city well-represented up on the big screen.”

Philip Key introduces Moonlighting…

7 October 2014

A quick 5 minute overview of Moonlighting – right here.

Last month, Moonlighting CEO Philip Key was unable to attend the 2014 Conference for the International Quorum of Producers – an organisation that we proudly joined by invitation earlier this year. So – we made a short film to play at the conference; a concise overview of Moonlighting, our sister companies and South Africa as a film destination – complete with a quick intro to the film financing opportunities in South Africa.

The only thing missing was the sun which refused to brighten up the misty backdrop.
