    Hi all,

    I am currently Art Directing a feature film being shot in London next month (November 2013), and am looking for a Mercedes for one of our characters.

    I am looking for:
    either a 2005 Mercedes Benz sClass s500 or similar
    or even a C-Class (circa 2005 - 2007) or similar

    It would only be required for 1 day (exact date tbc) and we are able to pay a hire fee for your time and vehicle. We are filming this scene around the Streatham area (SW17) but exact area tbc.

    I look forward to hearing from you, and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions

    Cheers,
    Carlo

    perhaps you could advise folks what use the car would be put to? A gentle drive down the road? just sitting looking pretty? being the getaway car for a robbery?

    yes but the guy said it is needed for an Art project.
    So it would need to look nice and work properly. And probably not too modded ;)

    Does it happen to be within 3 or 4 miles from the shoot ? :rolleyes:

    Should be ideal then. :p

    Any idea what the rates are ?
    Once we find out, we could split the fee and bung the owner a tenner or something ;)

    They'll never know ;)

    Surely, any self respecting 'hero' would want a W215 CL500 - I could assist :)

    nice first post without much information
    will the tv company have insurance in case the "star" damages it?
    what is the name of the production company?
    registered companies with landline numbers?

    please don't take this the wrong way but I know of a guy who lost his Aston Martin and nearly his life when he answered a similar advert for a modelling shoot
    when he turned up it was 3 Eastern European blokes who threatened to blow his head off and took his car
    the locked him in the back of an old stolen transit

    ^ Must admit that was my first thought too. There have been several posts asking for similar things in the relatively recent past. All have similar worded messages.

    But who knows - this one may be different!

    But I reckon I can guess the scene to be shot: Car arrives at a freight compound. Bad guy gets out. Car is put into a container. Container lifted onto lorry. Lorry leaves and is never seen again. Car too.

    :rolleyes:

    "Car arrives at a freight compound. Bad guy gets out. Car is put into a container. Container lifted onto lorry. Lorry leaves and is never seen again. Car too".

    Apparently the above is being considered by the Moderators instead of a Ban!!
