    Philip Key introduces Moonlighting…

    7 October 2014

    A quick 5 minute overview of Moonlighting – right here.

    Last month, Moonlighting CEO Philip Key was unable to attend the 2014 Conference for the International Quorum of Producers – an organisation that we proudly joined by invitation earlier this year. So – we made a short film to play at the conference; a concise overview of Moonlighting, our sister companies and South Africa as a film destination – complete with a quick intro to the film financing opportunities in South Africa.

    The only thing missing was the sun which refused to brighten up the misty backdrop.

    “the most excellent crew I’ve ever worked with”

    29 August 2014

    That’s what our client said about the Cape Town crew who worked on the VW shoot earlier this year.

    “Without a doubt the crew we have had for the last three days is the hardest working and most excellent crew I’ve ever worked with.
    Brilliant. Thank you all.”

    And here’s the second of those ads – shot by Resident Evil director Paul Anderson with UK production company The Mob for adamandeveddb. Volkswagen. Made for Real Life. Polo – Anti Collision Technology. Enjoy 🙂

    Filming on location in Cape Town – The Location Guide

    12 March 2014

    Cape Town has gained a well-earned global reputation amongst producers, directors, cast and film crew as being an extremely film-friendly shooting destination. Cape Town is the second most populous city in South Africa (nearly four million people) after Johannesburg and is the provincial and legislative capital of the Western Cape.

    Local location tip: “As most commercial production is concentrated in the six hectic months of summer there is a huge demand on resources, so the longer the pre-production time can be stretched the better, especially when there are a lot of locations involved. – Shayne Brookstein, Producer, (Moonlighting)

    The Location Guide on our Windhoek Lager shoot

    13 February 2014

     Moonlighting doubled filming locations in Turkey for Africa in a new spot for Windhoek Lager that also involved shooting in Kenya and South Africa. The Journey shows football star Didier Drogba being inspired to dribble a ball across African landscapes on his way to a packed stadium.

    Given that the production schedule was largely dictated by Drogba’s availability, Moonlighting travelled to the Ivorian star’sIstanbul base – he plays for Turkish team Galatasary SK – to double parts of the city for African locations. Istanbul’s winter weather conditions were among the larger challenges of this leg of the shoot.

    “It was freezing cold and raining which made it difficult!” recalls producer Shayne Brookstein: “There was a below-freezing wind chill and we were shooting on the Black Sea with extras filming in African dress as if it were hot, plus Didier in shorts!”

    The spot’s African village, a collection of remote African roads and the finale’s stadium were among the locations found inTurkey. Filming then shifted to Malindi in Kenya, which was used as a practical double for Ghana, before South Africa was used as a stand-in for British locations, while also providing a striking cliff-top scene.

    “Our last shoot day in Istanbul was pushed by a day because of Didier’s schedule,” Brookstein comments, “but we could not then push the shoot days in Kenya or South Africa so we effectively lost a day of prep in Kenya.”

    “This meant we ended up landing in Kenya at 8am, set out on a recce for eight different locations, arrived at the hotel at 8pm and then the call time was 4am the next morning. But the team in Kenya were amazing and it worked,” Brookstein adds.
