Skylines: As seen on TV...

Here's a novel idea for a thread - and it works for somebody lazy like me!

Post pics of cities as they're shown on TV. I'll show you what I mean...

Manhatten
Friends




Buffalo
Jesse




Boston
Ally MacBeal

There's a lot of ads that use skylines.

What about that one were they form a massive human pyramid around some skyscrapers (in US presumably) - forget what the ad was for, but it was something totally irrelevant

Anyone from Qld seen that scratch-it birthday ad on TV - there's a wide shot of Brisbane CBD then a shot looking up the side of a scraper - don't know which though.

the human pyramid is for playstation 2

i cant remember which car, but there's a car ad with a car driving across the story bridge w/ brisbane's skyline in the background.

and in the lock up your boss ad you can see rialto out the window.

and in that ad where the man is being wrapped in newspapers by the breeze you get some shots looking up scrapers in sydney, but then he's running in a grass field with rialto in the background.

I think that ad for playstation 2 was set in Rio.

I remember the intro to "Always Greener" featured the Sydney skyline and selected scrapers plus aerials when showing city scenes with the best one featuring Phillippa "Pip" Todd (Bree Walters) with the Chifley Talls Club acting as a backdrop. Marissa Taylor (Michala Banas) had the Warringah Freeway with the city skyline as her's Elizabeth "Liz" Taylor (Anne Tenney) had the view over the CBD from Stamford on Kent.

Seven News promo's in Sydney often feature fab skyline shots and aerials too.

Just point that Digital Camera at the television and click! Make sho u set the shutter speed first otherwise u get a funny image! I'll post some more later on, CSI and CSI Miami always have good skylines.

That Playstation 2 ad bends my mind into a pretzel! I mean can you imagine being one of the poor sods dumb enough to be on the bottom! Fun Anyone? How about a pile of a million dead bodies!!! That's fun right?!

nope, it starts in Martin Place and eventually ends up in Port Melbourne (just behind Yarra's Edge) with multiple changes throughout it all.

From Channel 9's Secrets of the city programme

The best is Mission Impossible (TV Series filmed in Australia, Version 2).
Is shown here in Singapore right now.
They used Melbourne skyline as Boston. Pollywoodside was their HQ. Como place as enemy hideout.

In one of episode, the were suppose to be in Hong Kong. It was filmed in Little Bourke Street. However, because of bad editing, you see a Melbourne MET tram, whizzing pass the screen.

Mission Impossible was filmed in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, in 1985-87.
I remember they were filming at Swinburne University. They had to import American cars with Amercian number plates. It gave Australian actors an opportunity talked with American accent. (quite funny)


Another is VISA TV ad here, it filmed on top of Melbourne Central.

Hi Blend, I wish I had VCR to screen capture it. Remember, Mission Impossible producers tries very hard not to reveal which city that they are in. However, the Australian landmark buildings (even Australian cars) can not be hidden from the the camera. I believe this TV series (version 2) was a big flop in the states.

ive never seen, itd be good if you could get them somehow zion.

I decided to join jimmp so i went and sat in front of my tv. I took one of brisbane, for an add for some retirement home which had city views. Unfortunately the cam on tv was panning across the city so it came out blurred.

Swapped channels and got this of Federation square model: (An abc as i speak)


and thought this was humourous (i got bored of waiting and took a shot of boobs)

I love the channel 7 news promos of Brisbane skyline - they must be up there evey week because the shots are spectacular and always very recent.
