In early December, we had the privilege of working for Optomen Productions USA.

Optomen filmed an interview inside one of our London Black Taxis.  Our driver Dave drove the cameraman and presenter around the area surrounding Buckingham Palace to provide a backdrop of London street life.  The film footage will be used in a documentary about the Royal Family.

Dear Mike,

We had the pleasure of working with your company and driver, David during our shoot  in London two weeks ago.   Not only is  he a wonderful driver,  but he is knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.  We really enjoyed having him on our film shoot with him.  I want to extend our gratitude to your company and  please send our many thanks to him as well.

Best regards,
Ginny S.

Kate & William look-alikes

Book London Taxis Film Production services Online or phone 0203 00 44 953

One of our most popular services is our work with film and production companies. We provide London Black Taxis and drivers for use in all types of film, media, publicity & production work–including TV, radio interviews, film shoots, advertising, PR stunts, music videos, promotional videos, and the safe transport of equipment.

So were Kate and William really filmed with one of our taxis? No, not really. This photo was taken during a job we did for BNN (Bart News Network), a Dutch public broadcasting company.

BNN was filming a game show featuring London taxi drivers. These Kate and William look-alikes were all part of the fun.

This past spring, we were delighted to assist Outline Productions in filming the BBC series Britain’s Big Wildlife Revival.

In Episode 3, presenter  Ellie Harrison took to London’s crowded streets to find out how urban wildlife copes with living alongside millions of people.

At 00.29 in the video below, you can catch a glimpse of our driver Dave talking with Ellie about the plight of the sparrows in London:

The episodes are airing on BBC ONE during August and September 2013.

The Last Leg

Channel 4: The Last Leg

Book a London taxi, tour, or treasure hunt online or phone +44 (0)203 00 44 953

Today we have the exciting opportunity of being involved in a film shoot for HSI London Productions and Open Mike Productions as they film an intro for the hit  Channel 4 TV show “The Last Leg”, with Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe, and Alex Brooker.

At this very moment, our driver Dave and his London Taxi are being used in a stunt sequence.  Also involved are stunt BMX rider Joel Bennett and free runner Ash Holland.

Hopefully, we will eventually be able to show you the film footage involving our taxi. But for the moment, we thought we would share these amazing videos of Joel Bennett and Ash Holland as they perform their stunt magic.

London Black Taxis Films with Cwmni Da TV

Book a London taxi, tour, or treasure hunt online or phone +44 (0)203 00 44 953

We have just completed a filming job for Cwmni Da TV, one of the leading and most well-respected indie production companies in Wales.

They had been commissioned by Channel 4 to produce a series about the changing plight of plant species in the UK. The series, called Wild Things, will examine the changes that have taken place in the British landscape and flora over the past 50 years. For an episode about London, they wanted to examine the air filter of a London Black Taxi and analyse the plant pollens found.

They hired us to provide them with a London Black Taxi, a driver, and a taxi garage.  After being driven around London by our driver Dave, the presenters returned to the garage. Once there, our mechanic showed them how to remove the air filter.  With microscope at the ready on a nearby workbench, the presenters examined the pollens found in the filter.

The entire session was filmed by Cwmni Da’s talented and professional film crew.  The official Cwmni DA television program will be aired soon, but in the meantime we thought you might like to see the video clips that we snapped on the day:

William Orbit and Black Cab Sessions

Book a London taxi, tour, or treasure hunt online or phone +44 (0)203 00 44 953

Have you heard of Black Cab Sessions?

Their tagline is “Presenting the best bands in the most iconic vehicle in the world.”

The concept is simple. Take a musician (or a bunch of them). Put them into a London Black Cab. Film them “doin’ their thang”.

Where do they get the black cabs?  Sometimes, they hail a cab off the street.  But hailing a London cab off the street is difficult enough without the added burden of instruments, cameras, and sound equipment!

Sometimes, the cab is booked ahead of time with a company such as us.

We have been privileged to provide cabs to Black Cab Sessions for William Orbit and for an all-day filming gig at the Big Chill Festival.

William Orbit

Have a look at this Black Cab Sessions video with William Orbit in the back of one of our cabs.  That’s our driver Jon bopping in the front seat!
