The Making of our TV Advert - Part 3

Filming at MG’s state of the art factory in Ling Gang, Shanghai started bright and early in the morning and, thanks in part to using the new state of the art Canon 5D cameras, all the desired shots were ‘in the can’ by 7pm at night. This is a new camera and the size/portability of the camera (actually a DSLR still camera body) means that not only can the work be done at speed, and without the cost of film, but the camera can easily fit into small otherwise inaccessible areas making it perfect for getting in and amongst the fantastic machinery that makes the MG6 line such a sight to behold.

There crew filmed a variety of facilities in the factory including, the body assembly area where the huge robots welded the main body panels together, areas where parts were being welded by hand, the door attachment line, the paint shop, an audit bay resplendent with gleaming MG6, the under chassis inspection pit, and finally the glass bridge through which the partially finished cars moved form one area of the plant to another.

After the odd pick up and addition from our Birmingham home, the filming is all complete, the next stop is the editing suite!
