Incredible Looking Home Made Entirely From Shipping Containers

"Using shipping containers to create unusual and bespoke homes has been done before however it normally involves stacking them on top of each other to create a pretty conventional looking square home. But what London-based designer James Whitaker has done takes things a step further with this amazing desert installation.

The 200-square meter house has all the commodities you’d expect from your typical home including a kitchen, living room and three en-suite bedrooms that fit into multiple shipping containers that have all been linked together.

Designed for a film maker who remains anonymous the residence is called The Joshua Tree Residence and is built on the clients private 90-acre plot in California. With construction to begin next year you can guarantee this is coolest shipping container home around.

A jewel within Maryland's Eastern Shore, Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge conserves more than 30,000 acres of rich tidal marsh. Silhouetted trees of loblolly pine and mixed hardwood forests provide perfect places for the bald eagles, ospreys and herons to nest. The refuge supports one of the highest concentrations of nesting bald eagles on the Atlantic coast. Mystical, magical, swampy and otherworldly, the edge of the marsh is far from quiet. When you're there you find the world stops and starts all at once. Pic by Ernesto Freire (www.sharetheexperience.org).

Location Managers Guild

Location Managers Guild

The assistant location manager (ALM) is an entry-level position within the location department whose primary responsibilities are to assist the department, specifically the location manager. ALMs may also get the opportunity to assist in scouting.

An ALM’s duties can include leafleting an area before filming (letting locals know about an upcoming shoot via posted flyers with production and contact information), mapping out each location for call sheets, preparing Movement Orders (directions to locations that allow crew to travel quickly and safely to each location), organizing on-location parking, keeping the location clean during and after filming, directing pedestrian traffic, and answering questions from locals and tenants.

Once pre-production begins, the day-to-day work can be emotionally and physically draining. As the lowest member of the location totem pole, are some of the first crew members to arrive in the morning so they can post signage directing the crew where to park and how to get to set, and among the last to leave as they pick up the production’s daily trash. And in between, they’re fielding complaints and phone calls from local residents who can’t find parking or want to know why their favorite coffee shop has been closed to the public.

As an entry-level position within the location department, ALMs are either hired directly as assistant location managers (and typically work with the same location manager from project to project) or start out as production assistants/location assistants before becoming location scouts and, eventually, location managers.

Christian McWilliams (“Braveheart,” “Anna and the King”), remembers the first time he was called on to scout while working on 2001’s “Spy Game”: “Suddenly, I was cast as the problem solver. ‘Can you go to Budapest? The Hungarians are showing me the same locations over and over again and I want something new and different.’ ‘Sure,’ I said, packing the camera bag. To get to go abroad on a movie had been an ambition, after 10 years of grueling work as an assistant.

“I had worked my way up the ladder from [PA] to assistant from television to film and from low budget to high budget.”

Similarly, Matt Palmer (“When We Rise,” “Fargo”) credits his first ALM gig to being in the right place at the right time, and to being open to new opportunities: “I fell into location work by accident. Coming out of film school, I had the ambition to be a director. My thought was to start as an assistant director, so I was trying to get hired on ‘Lonesome Dove: The Series.’ I didn’t get the job but I got called to work as a PA on the location team. Not long afterward, the assistant location manager was fired, and I got promoted to be assistant location manager.”
