    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.

    Evergreen – Tresor and The Kiffness

    23 February 2016

    8 music videos down, 1 to go in the Sony Xperia Mashlab project being produced by our digital company Thread. The 7th is   Evergreen, a collaboration by Tresor & The Kiffness, directed by Quinton Lavery, that – as voted by Sony Xperia Mashlab fans – combines “Tarantino tunes & summer vibes”. It’s high in the national charts and playing on MYV and Trace. We shot it on Seapoint Beach at sunset and invited fans to come and be extras. Very cool, you’ll love it. Here are some pic. Videos to follow. #Sony Xperia Mashlab #5FM #Tresor #The Kiffness #Evergreen #Thread

    Never Stop: Epic Adventure for North Face from Mekanism

    1 October 2015

    North Face went for epic adventure in their first ever global ad campaign, created by Mekanism. The team came to South Africa this winter and shot at 6 locations in 4 “Amazing Race” type days. They braved Hout Bay Harbour’s choppy winter swell, skate-boarded down Steenbras Pass Road, froze at Sutherland (home to our Observatory), jumped off Kynsna’s Red Bridge and then raced up to Johannesburg and Pretoria for museum and market shots. The South African scenes were combined with shots from Alaska and Nepal to create the beautioful end product
