    Replica of Mandela’s prison cell sponsored by Moonlighting

    20 October 2016

    Moonlighting was incredibly proud to undertake and sponsor the production of the Robben Island Museum’s mobile replica Mandela cell, launched last month at Spine Road High School, Mitchells Plain in the presence of former political prisoners Ahmed Kathrada, Eddie Daniels, Andrew Mlangeni and Dennis Goldberg; Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba and Home Affairs Deputy Minister Fathima Chohan and more than 1200 matric students from surrounding Mitchells Plain High Schools. Huge thanks and respect to the amazing workmanship of Johnny Breedt, Rae Wynne-Roberts, Mustakim Salie, Nic Buchanan, Drew Jarvis & Robert Burger, who designed and created the cell & its trailer (construction, illustration, printing). The cell will be taken around the country by the Robben Island Museum & The Ministry of Home Affairs, to educate children about the country’s past.

    Filming with European soccer legends for Tipico

    13 July 2016

    European soccer legends Oliver Kahn, Michael Konsel, Geert de Vlieger and Peter Schmeichel bump into each other on a beautiful golf-course, ‘somewhere in France’ and begin their sporting challenge; so begins the new UEFA 2016 campaign directed by Mike Morley and shot with us in Cape Town for Germany’s leading sports betting provider Tipico..

    Art Director Naobi Noisette worked alongside model-maker Lee-Ann Heath to design and create 24 massive icons to represent each UEFA qualifying country. For France, for example, they made a poodle and a 3m high frog with baguette and wine (now resident at Moonlighting); for the UK – a red telephone box sofa; for Germany – a 5m “cake” of the Brandenburg Gate; for Croatia – a massive dalmation (now the mascot at a local animal shelter). We worked with prosthetics master Clinton from Cosmesis to create the ageing masks for Kahn and Schmeichel. It was a multi-camera shoot including Steadicams, a Phantom, a Drone and we tried out the Teryx Quad Bike system with Predator arm.

    Cannes Lions 2016

    29 June 2016

    Poor Shayne and Beccy roughed it in Cannes again this year. We were based during the day at the Mandala Beach Restaurant as part of the GPN (Global Production Network) base; thanks to all the clients who came to visit us there and joined us for morning yoga on the beach (!), SUP-ing on our branded GPN boards (! again), breakfasts, drinks, lunch and great chats. We partied at the PIG / Tantor Films BBQ sessions; at the Lee Films pool party; at the Casta Diva apartment; at the SHOTS party; the Location Guide Soiree; and of course co-sponsored the best party of the week – Friday night’s South Africa party at Long Beach. DJ’s Marc Algranti and Juan Woodbury rocked it again. By Sunday 26th it was all over for another year.

    33% more value for your budget; demand on crew eases as 4 movies wrap 

    23 February 2016

    Production value in South Africa is at an all-time high thanks to our all-time low Rand. Which means 33% more value for your $ or € and 25% more value for your £. Basically, $50 -70 will get you a  meal for 2 in a 5 star restaurant with wine. And a sunset.  By the ocean. Production is also easier now that 4 features have wrapped.
