Captain America Filming

Vita Ray Productions UK Ltd have started producing Captain America: The First Avenger here in Manchester’s Northern Quarter and for the next month Dale, Tariff, Back Piccadilly and Mangle Street will be turned into downtown New York.

Our are offices are right in the middle of all the action, so we decided to create a photo blog roll to documentate what was happening on set in our little corner of Manchester.

Preparation and production will be taking place between 6th September to the 3rd of October and then there will be a week where they reinstate the streets back to their original state.


Filming has now finished. Here are a selection of some of the photos on our photo-blog.

    My business has an existing app on the iphone that we need replicating on android. We’d like it too look and feel much the same as the iphone version but if there are some suitable native touches required then that is fine. The existing app can be seen here:
    The score calculation, and most data is taken from a server API.

    The developer of the iphone model will be on hand to help with the development as required.

    Would you be interested in taking on the project? Our budget is about £3-5k.
