Head shoots with Andy Murray in London side streets

Major sports manufacturer Head has filmed a new spot with Scottish tennis star Andy Murray in the side streets of the City of London. Tennis Street Magic shows Murray playing trick shots with a racquet and ball in side streets and on the roof of a low-rise building.

The production got permission to film on the roof of Whites Row Car Park on Commercial Street. Rhun Francis, a Line Producer on the project, said: “We wanted to have a real and gritty tone to the spot, but at the same time we wanted to keep a touristy touch as well, which is why you can see the Gherkin building in the background of the rooftop shots.”

Tower Hamlets Council and the City of London gave permission to film and the production had Murray for six hours. Mr Francis added: “The idea was that Andy’s out with a mate, messing about a bit and showing what he can do with a racquet and ball.”
