London Calling

Today I am blogging from our apartment in sunny London - 20 degrees to be precise. Shocker.



I apologise that it has been a while but the reason I have been so busy is because I can now confirm that my brother Edd and I are currently working on the Universal Pictures movie 
'The Huntsman'. 

This is the sequel to the 2012 movie 'Snow white and the Huntsman. 

We worked on the first film four years ago and are so excited about this upcoming sequel.

Yes that is me in the original film, as a man lol. We are shooting until the end of July which means I will once again have a British Summer to look forward to and judging by the weather now I can't complain :)



The last time I was in London for work was back in 2013 for Disney's 'Into the Woods' - which I am still yet to see.  

On the topic of films, last night I watched 'Unfriended' a Universal Pictures movie produced by MTV.   

The film is based around a teenage girl committing suicide, driven by bullying on social media. A concept very relevant in todays modern age.
The storyline had such great potential however once I realised the whole film was just one continuous still shot of a Skype conversation on a laptop screen, the narrative lost all possibilities taking a very obvious direction - not to mention it was all totally unbelievable lol. But hey I'm no film critic.

It's so great being based back in London.

Yesterday, on a rare day off,  Edd and I decided to challenge ourselves to visit every London landmark in one day and -
we got it all on camera lol.


It was exhausting but enlightening at the same time.

All together in 12 hours we visited -

London Eye, Big Ben, Westminster Abby, Buckingham palace, Hyde Park, Leicester square, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Tower Bridge, Tower of London, St Pauls Cathedral, London Bridge, The Shard

And my favourite place was most defiantly the London Sky Gardens.



Close to Bank tube station this gorgeous glass building is breathtakingly beautiful inside.
Tickets are free online and after 6pm there is no need to book you can just walk in. 
Maybe next time we will just go there and reserve a table - not rock up with backpacks and sweaty hair styles.

I will be sure to post our London in a day vlog in the upcoming weeks for your enjoyment- not to mention the comedy of the confused general public witnessing two child like adults vlogging around London lol.

Anyways, another early call time tomorrow. I'm not heading back to LA until August so expect a lot more of all things British :)

Thanks for visiting,

Jo
