Services

Fresh Smart Locations

Locations in South Africa are a dream. With production centers in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban, and millions of locations within an hour from all city centers, we really have it all. Our location scouts and set designers are renowned for finding and designing the backdrops to some of the world’s most famous commercials. We like to work very closely with you to make sure you see as much as possible and help you schedule your choices smartly.

Solid Cast

South Africa’s diversity makes it an easy place to cast. Even if you find it conceptually better to bring your own leads, we can easily fill any supporting roles with actors kept in top shape by all the international feature films and Netflix, Showmax, Amazon and BBC shows that film right here in Southern Africa.

Top Crew

South Africa has been a film destination for 50 years for productions from all over the world. The depth, experience and can-do attitudes of our crews are well-known and admired by directors and dop’s worldwide. We can book you all the top guys and girls, because they work with us year round.

Great Weather

Although we are not in charge of this one, the general weather pattern is very easy to predict. December is summer, June is winter. And because South Africa is big and the weather regions far-reaching, there is year-round blue skies and sun available in 80% of the country. Summer is a big hit for obvious reasons, but winter light is something else, just ask the locals. And if you are shooting interiors, the math for out-of-season is a no-brainer.

International Post Production

South Africa has many internationally linked post production facilities crammed full of award-winning talent. If you need a quick test edit for shoot purposes, or try a post effect before committing to the big day, or an on-shoot editor, or even run the whole post process through them, they are always ready to help us.
