SHOOT IN CAPE TOWN ON A BUDGET
The clocks have gone back so it’s dark at 4.30pm, the leaves on the trees have turned or dropped off and the weather forecast shows nothing but wind and rain. And then you have a script that requires summer exteriors without a budget to match!
What do you do?
You drop us a line.
We’ve shot dozens of commercials in Cape Town; from cars, food, fashion and finance to pet flea treatments. We’ve even shot for a South African agency – go figure!
We’ve shot massive commercials with huge crews for the likes of BT and Peugeot, but we’ve also produced commercials on a tight budgets with UK-sized crews. All have taken advantage of summer weather in our winter, great crews, cast and equipment and UK-looking locations – be it countryside, beaches, cityscapes, parks or houses.
So, send us your script and your budget and we’ll tell you what’s possible. The Pound may have dropped like a stone compared to the Dollar and the Euro, but it’s very strong compared to the South African Rand. This means that even on a tight budget, we’ll still have the latest gear and great crews & cast. You and your clients won’t need a visa and you won’t be roughing it. The hotels we usually use are 4-star near the Waterfront and every evening we dine in great restaurants. We’ll even give you an all-inclusive budget that covers your team’s and your clients’ flights, accommodation, local travel and subsistence, so there won’t be any nasty surprises.
And just in case you thought that all this is too good to be true and that the most important element – the commercial – won’t be fantastic, take a look at our exceptionally talented directors.
