The building in advertisements and videos
If you are resident in the building, do you ever find you are irritated by the frequent filming that goes on in and around our building?
Christophe Georget has a passion for collecting all the evidence he can find about film shoots and the material that comes from them: the advertisements and promotional vides that are then seen by a world-wide audience.
He provides this list of instances, which you might wish to review, share with your friends and family, or even use in promoting your own use of the building:
