Philip has been involved in the South African film industry for some 25 years. He started off as a sound technician and then was asked one day out of the blue if he could help some French producers who wanted to shoot in South Africa. Just like that, Moonlighting began. He was one of the first to market the merits of South Africa to production companies overseas and has been a pioneering force in the industry ever since.
Beccy handles marketing and PR for the whole of Moonlighting – from overall strategy to writing those newsletters we send you and filling the sumptuous gift packs. Before joining Moonlighting she was based in London where she worked with a branding consultancy after some years in marketing with United Airlines.
Shayne heads up our production team super-efficiently, from bidding through to when you are here shooting with us, with a calm professionalism and dedication that inspires confidence and trust in producers from all over the world. She comes from a background of both director based and service work and free-lanced for 16 years before finally joining us in 2010. A multi-tasking uber-mum of three boys, champagne is her drink of choice.
Eve manages Moonlighting’s Research Department. Which means she’s part of the team that puts our locations sites together, does all those 2am cast uploads, coordinates castings when needed, goes out scouting to find that elusive location and much more. She came to us on an internship after 3 years studying at AFDA, left to work in Features for a while and then we managed to lure her back.
Nolan is our financial wizard. The man with an unswayable calm and logic that defies most of us, juggling foreign exchange, crew payments and every single aspect of Moonlighting’s financial management. He is most popular around the 25th of the month when it’s pay day.
Emanuel started out in the marketing department with Beccy and now works alongside Philip Key assisting him with his many business and personal ventures. While he still juggles accommodation requests for production, he’s also learning about the exciting business of online publishing and sports media content. He is a blogger, songwriter, dancer and part time actor who was recently starred in the Milnerton Player’s revival of “Don’t Dress for Dinner.”
Mimi Mniki spent several years as our seasonal receptionist before joining Beccy in marketing in 2014. This is just her day job….she sings The Blues every Friday night in Cape Town and she and her band were the hit at our 25th anniversary party. Be warned – she has also set up and judges Moonlighting’s own in-house Fashion Friday…..
