They're Gonna Put Me In The Movies! The #London Walks #Beatles Film Is On The Way!

Adam writes…

Yesterday afternoon was spent in the company of filmmaker Jon Klein working on the new promo film for the London Walks Beatles tours. What larks!

I teamed up with David, Andy, Steve and, of course, Beatle expert Richard Porter to recreate some famous Beatle moments for the camera.

Here are a few behind-the-scenes snaps and a grab from the Abbey Road webcam...



Here's David shooting his cameo as the mad director…



Jon Klein lines up a shot with pointers from Beatle expert Richard Porter…



Richard's suit is a replica of the one worn by The Fabs on the Royal Command Performance…



From Marylebone, it's off to Abbey Road, here's filmmaker Jon in the private London Walks ultra- luxurious limo, cunningly designed to resemble the 139 bus to Golders Green…



In his own write (I'm loving Andy's "naughty" face)…




We're ready for our close-up…



The van that blocked our shot for AGES (from the Abbey Road webcam)…



And finally… we cross the road…










The London Walks Beatles film is coming soon! For full details of the Beatles London Walks click here: http://www.walks.com/popular-walks/beatles


In the meantime, here's one that Jon Klein made earlier, the Rock'n'Roll London Pub walk video…

#London Walkers Review #LondonWalks: #StreetArt "Highly recommended"


-->



Mary, Fiona, Maxine & Noel in the London Walks office write… On Mondays we'll be sharing reviews of our London Walks written by London Walkers. Firstly, THANKS to all who have written to us down through the years, your kind words are greatly appreciated! Our guides don't solicit these reviews on our tours – we believe that this would be a waste of your time. That's what makes these reviews all the more special – they have been sent to us by genuine London Walkers who have given up their valuable time to drop us a line or two, or leave a comment on travel message boards & websites. 



This review is for Leo's Street Art review…




So interesting

Leo took us on the Street Art walk through Spitalfields. She's a historian so was able to give background info on the area as well as being very knowledgeable about the artists and their techniques. Highly recommended if you want to explore a different part of London.


Thanks MBO2013631 of Mexico City!
