Behind the scenes of our TV campaign

Our new TV ad is set to launch on Sunday 4th September so we wanted to give you a behind the scenes glimpse of the effort and energy that went into putting together a 30 sec ad. We wanted our ad to reflect the diversity of the homeowners and tradespeople who use our service as well as provide a flavour of the range of jobs posted on our site. A challenge to get it all into 30 seconds but we like how it’s turned out. The finishing touch was a voiceover by property guru Phil Spencer.

With 3 scenes to shoot across two locations, we started at the crack of dawn, on a sunny day in Cardiff and finished well into the night.

You can watch the full ad here.

Here’s the team running through the storyboard one last time.
