Mark McKennon was location scout and manager on the April 2017 video-photo shoot for the 2018 Lexus LS 500. Line producer: MHP Inc of New York City. Exec producer: Shuffle Inc. of Agua Dulce CA. Shoot dates: April 20-22 in Manhattan, including the Public Theater on Lafayette St. and on Park Ave. On April 28 the setting moved to Rte. 97 / Hawks Nest in Deerpark, NY. A Technocrane, a drone and NYPD MTV and State Police officers helped to make fine visuals.
My company needed a School in Brooklyn and had very specific needs. The shoot was coming up quickly and I had to get potential locations to my client ASAP. Mark hit the ground running and gave us 5 really solid choices in a few days. He handled all of the permits and paperwork and essentially made a very difficult and time sensitive job no stress for me. The client picked a school, which happened to have a wonderful Principal and staff that helped us do a complicated shoot without disrupting the kids schedules in the school. It was a huge win/win for the school and my client. I would highly recommend Mark for your location scouting needs - James Weber, James Weber Studios and Black T Films
Mark is my go-to guy when we need to find a location that's somehow unique or one-of-a kind. Off of the top of his head he knows what you're looking for, where the best options are located, and how to get it!"
