    Hollywood “blown away” by SA production crews

    24 February 2016

    Hollywood “blown away” by SA production crews – written by Francesca Fazey / Cape Business News

    South Africa’s international reputation for excellence in the film industry is fast extending beyond its scenic locations to now include the quality of its production crews. This is according to Chris Brancato, Executive Producer of “Of Kings and Prophets,” the first big-budget television series from American Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) Studios to be shot entirely in South Africa.

    Brancato was speaking at a press conference on Thursday on the series set, located in Stellenbosch. “I have worked on film sets all over the world, and can honestly say that this is one of the best crews I have ever worked with,” Brancato said.

    He described the attention to detail in every level of the production as “jaw-dropping.” Brancato also praised the work ethic and depth of talent available in the country and said he had received several unsolicited comments from seasoned Hollywood directors involved in the show who were “blown away” by the quality of the South African production team.  The ethnic diversity of the crew in senior positions and “not just as assistants”, was another strong feature that was rare in the industry, Brancato said.

    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.

    Of Kings and Prophets

    23 February 2016

    Of Kings and Prophets – shot with Moonlighting Films in South Africa – will premier in the US on March 8th.

    Published in Business Day: 19 February, 2016

    THESE are fire-treated so they can go up in flames, says costume supervisor Stephen O’Rawe. There’s a battle tonight and O’Rawe is in the thick of it. He’s marshalling uniforms for three different tribes so that everything is ready when the 400-odd extras arrive to be dressed. The clothes of the various “soldiers” will catch alight in the midst of the fray — without the actors being crisped.

    It’s dusty and hot in the bleached hills outside Durbanville in the Western Cape where the American Broadcasting Corporation Studios’ (ABC’s) television series Of Kings and Prophets is being filmed. It’s the largest ABC production yet to be filmed in SA.

    “He came from Game of Thrones,” says costume designer Moira Meyer of O’Rawe. “He says he’s never going back.”

    O’Rawe is marching about showing off Philistine masks and leather jerkins. Game of Thrones in some ways marked a new era in television drama: the television spectacular. The Home Box Office (HBO) series has won 26 Primetime Emmy Awards and attracted record numbers of viewers and a broad and active international fan base.

    Of Kings and Prophets, which traces the rise of a shepherd, David, to become the Israelites’ most famous king, is ABC’s answer to the rise of these superseries.
