    Passion Pictures’ Compare the Market

    17 November 2014

    This is one of those spontaneous smile-makers! Passion Pictures, VCCP and directors Darren Walsh and David Scanlon brought their iconic Russian meercat “Aleksandr Orlov” campaign to Africa earlier this year to shoot their latest ads and a series of idents. Join them as the Meercats show baby Oleg his roots… (and the stripey pajama horses…)

    Thanks to Moonlighting’s production team & crew on this – led by Shayne Brookstein, Suzanne Currie and Wade Olckers – with filming up at Shambala Private Game Reserve, Lindberg Lodge and Glen Afric.

    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.

    Brilliant. Thank you all.”

    The Giver

    30 April 2014

    The Weinstein Company’s has released this new featurette on The Giver, directed by Phillip Noyce and starring Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Brenton Thwaites, Alexander Skarsgård, Katie Holmes, Odeya Rush and Taylor Swift.

    The haunting story of The Giver centers on Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. The August 15 release is based on Lois Lowry’s beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner of the 1994 Newbury Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

    The Giver was shot with Moonlighting Films.

    ‘Homeland’ Set for Summer Shoot in South Africa

    30 April 2014

    Showtime and Fox 21 announced Friday that award-winning drama series “Homeland” is set to begin production in Cape Town, South Africa.

    Production will begin in mid-June and continue through November on the popular drama centered around bipolar CIA agent Carrie Mathison, played by Claire Danes.

    “We’ve been so lucky to work with one of the best crews in the business for the last three seasons in Charlotte,” “Homeland” showrunner and exec producer Alex Gansa said in a statement. “We knew going into season four that we would need to move the production overseas to tell the story of Carrie returning to the Middle East as chief of station.  We are thrilled to have found a new home in Cape Town and look forward to getting season four production off the ground.”

    The show’s fourth season, set to premiere this fall, finds Carrie back on the front lines in the war on terror as she is assigned to one of the most volatile and dangerous CIA stations in the Middle East.

    In addition to stars Danes and Mandy Patinkin, Rupert Friend will also return for season four, along with Nazanin Boniadi, who was recently promoted to a series regular.
