    campaign – Comparethemarket.com reveals its most ambitious campaign yet

    2 June 2018

    …to bring to life the variety of films available with a year’s membership to Meerkat Movies.

    The ad by VCCP reimagines Barbara Streisand’s Rain On My Parade, sung by the loveable meerkat Aleksandr, and is packed with iconic film references to capture the magic of the silver screen. It was shot in Cape Town with Parisian choreographer Oliver Casamayou, who has worked with Kylie Minogue, Will Young and Cirque Du Soleil. The wardrobe was curated by Moira Meyer, who has worked on films such as Blood Diamond and The Hurt Locker, and includes Brad Pitt’s uniform from Fury and Cate Blanchett’s dress from Elizabeth. For the first time Comparethemarket.com used a 60-second radio ad to launch the campaign, which will be followed by a TV spot airing on 18 May during Coronation Street.

    No more Advance Specialist Visas (Section 11(2)) required for directors, DP’s and photographers coming to shoot in South Africa for less than 90 days from visa exempt countries!!!!!

    They will now be able to come in as Oversights with a FIVA letter that they will present at immigration upon arrival.

    This is thanks to the incredible efforts of Rudi Riek of FIVA (Film Industry Visa Assistance)

    Visas will be required as usual for all travelers from non-visa-exempt countries, as well as other specific members of crew; however, they will not be restricted to only applying in their home countries. More info available from Moonlighting.

    Cape Town’s water situation is improving daily.

    8 February 2018

    We are happy to reassure you we are NOT queuing for water, many gardens & parks are still green and life is fine!
    Unfortunately the press is still sensationalising the situation and doesn’t portray the reality as it is, or the good news. So – with apologies for yet another email – here is an update.

    • Yes, we are experiencing a serious drought but all the many steps being taken by the City of Cape Town and residents are allowing our water supplies to be gradually replenished.
    • Millions of litres of water have been re-routed to Cape Town’s water supply from other Western Cape dams that are no longer needed by the farmers. (There is still a lot of water in dams outside of Cape Town).

    We can assure you that film shoots and tourism are going ahead as usual with no adverse effects whatsoever.

    • As you can see from the photos, we have green parks and gardens; these are just a few of many.
    • When you stay in Cape Town, you will have water as usual at your hotel, our office, restaurants and anywhere you go. The only thing you might notice is that your hotel may encourage you to shower instead of taking a bath, and perhaps replace towels and linen every other day. That is probably the only real way it is affecting visitors.
    • The Cape Town Argus Cycle Tour with 35000 cyclists, many of whom are from outside Cape Town / overseas, is going ahead with confidence in March.

    The prospect of the much-mentioned “Day Zero” (a term intended mainly to make residents save water) is looking even less likely. Current official projections have now pushed it back to mid-May (3 months away, well into our winter) but it’s still unlikely. Even then, if it happens, central Cape Town and surrounding business and tourist districts will not be affected.

    We will never allow your shoot or stay here to be compromised in any way and will keep you fully informed of the situation.

    Just think – you can tell everyone you survived the Cape Town drought (while sipping on your ice-cold Sauvignon Blanc as you gaze at the ocean)!

    Round the World in 80 Days

    4 April 2017

    On Saturday, our sports division – Moonsport – started production on ”Round the World in 80 Days” – following cyclist and adventurer Mark Beaumont, live, on his epic journey as he cycles 240 miles / 16 hours each day. Beaumont is preceding his July start with a “test-run”, cycling 3500 miles around Great Britain over 14 days. Cape Town based cameraman Helmut Scherz and editor/stills photographer Johnny Swanepoel will be on the road with Mark and his support team for the same relentless 16 cycling hours every day. Daily uploads will illustrate his progress and tell the story. Moonsport’s Trent Key and Manni Ferreira will be steering the production over the next 5 months. You can follow Mark’s progress on www.artemisworldcycle.com on Twitter at @MrMarkBeaumont #AroundBritain #80Days.
