Christmas at Castle Gibson
This holiday season we are thrilled to host Mange's Christmas at Castle Gibson. Known for their beautiful and inventive food, Mange have put together a series of simple, all inclusive, delicious packages containing wines, cocktails, and and delectable treats. With three different dining styles to choose from, there are options catering to everyones interests. Whether it's a lunch or dinner at MC Motors or lunch at the Depositories, each will be a unique and immersive experience. From the smell of the food to the look of the industrial venue, you are sure to indulge every sense.
We know its not a Thursday, but we thought we'd give everyone a little throwback anyway! Today while looking through some old magazines around the studio, we found some incredible shots from so many different shoots at our locations. It's amazing looking back and seeing how much the studios have changed, and how every shoot is so unique and captivating in its own way. From fashion to interiors, take a look down below at some of the wonderful shoots throughout the years. And let us know if you've ever seen these photos in magazines not knowing they were from our locations!
Pitching in the Real ‘Den’
Back in December, we hosted a very constructive event for young people to come and take part in the London Region's Pitching Challenge. Students from different schools around the community came together to pitch their ideas to the 'dragons' on how to make a difference to social problems around the world, on the original Dragons Den set. This event really gave the students a chance to see what it would be like, pitching in the real world of work. They received constructive criticism, put themselves forward, and had fun. It was wonderful getting to see so many young talented minds, come together and bravely, and professionally put their ideas forward to the panel, and convince the 'dragons' to invest in their ideas, to eventually work towards making a difference in the world. Please check out the link down below to get a better view of the awesome challenge that took place! We hope to get the opportunity to see you all again next year! http://www.envision.org.uk/home/news-events/pitching-real-den

Drop the Lime – “Hot as Hell”
Here's a whole chunk of tantalising rockabilly to get your teeth into! The Depository recently entertained the boys from Love Hate Productions as they brought New York based DJ and producer Drop the Lime over to record the video to his new tune "Hot as Hell". Recently snapped up by Ministry of Sound Drop the Lime, AKA Luca Venezia, is the man behind Brooklyn's notorious Trouble and Bass club night. With his influences stretching across the musical spectrum to include genres as diverse as Northern Soul, grime and minimal techno "Hot as Hell" manages to fuse rockabilly and dance together in a way that wouldn't seem possible. The catchy tune is currently big in England with the likes of Annie Mac and Zane Lowe while Switch and Diplo have been rinsing it the other side of the pond. Everyone knows what a bit of upbeat country and western can do to a party so we might just see this one take off! Look out for its release in January and check out his official site for European tour dates. For any East London locals out there see if you can spot any of the Dalston institutions dotted throughout the video!
Another Great Wedding
Here are some brilliant pictures of the wedding reception of Laura and Ewen we recently hosted at The Depository and The House Next Door. Following the ceremony at Frederick's in Islington Laura, Ewen (in their fantastic vintage Citroen) and their guests made the short trip over to Stoke Newington. After having some amazing portraits taken in The House Next Door the newly weds moved into the Depository for the reception. Following a buffet, a few speeches and many a glass of champagne the party began and from reports a great night was had by all! Congratulations to the happy couple and thanks for letting us use the pics! Also thanks to photographer David McNeil, check out his site and blog where there's loads more images of this particular wedding and many more he's done in the past!
Pixie Lott – “Broken Arrow”
Hot off the press, here's the brand new video for Pixie Lott's new single "Broken Arrow" filmed at our Depository location and produced by our friends at Mercury. Pixie and her lovely mum Barbara are regular visitors to our locations having done numerous shoots as well as the video to her first ever number one, "Mama Do", at MC Motors. While Mama Do was an upbeat track involving an urban dance off, motorbikes and a huge fluffy mattress "Broken Arrow" has a softer beat showing a more mature, love-affected Pixie. The song definitely shows Ms Lott in a different light and if past experience is anything to go by don't be surprised to see it topping the charts within the next few weeks! Pre-order it here and watch the video below....
