November: Our New Amazing Spaces

Busy Season in Beautiful Cape Town

Things are hotting up in Cape Town in a big way with a film or photo-shoot on practically every corner.  It’s one of the ways we know that Summer has certainly arrived in Cape Town.  This past week has been particularly impressive weather-wise, with our city putting its very best foot forward.  Impressive lightening storms, balmy weather and cracker days of scorching sun and bright, open, azure blue skies.  We’re going on a bit much aren’t we…?  Well, you can’t say we’re not passionate about this country and its beauty!  But without further ado, let’s take you through this month’s hottest additions.  There are a number of properties in both Cape Town and Joburg to get through.  You’ll be able to click on each image or location name to go straight through to the gallery where you can browse the location in its entirety.  Enjoy!

Wishing you a wonderful week.  Reply to this email for more information or options on any of the above locations, or if you have a brief you currently need locations for.

Warm Regards,

Commercial Cool (Trendwatch)

Working spaces, from rooftops to bars, workshops to cafeterias, salons to showrooms – they’re flooding in and in high demand as we start our busy season in South Africa.  Take a look at these cool commercial spots in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

Remember Your Power

This Eskom 49M commercial is intended to raise awareness around saving electricity.  It’s just the right amount of sentimental to get the message hitting home.  Agency was Saatchi & Saatchi JHB and the commercial was shot by Greg Gray and edited by Ricky Boyd.  Wondering why the voice sounds familiar?  The vocalist from aKing gives the musical depth to the commercial.  Watch out for scenes shot in one of our flagship apartments, Adam’s Apple.

Top Five Amazing Spaces of Last Season

49a LoungeEvery year at the start of our busy season (about mid-September) we assess which locations did well the previous year, what we might be lacking for the year ahead and we set the intention to bring in more spaces like these.  These five locations are the crème de la crème of the Cape Town Film Industry:

Apollo
49a
Strawberries & Cream
Pearl Bay
Oasis

They are well looked after, do not date easily and make use of open spaces, light and bright areas and most incorporate neutral tones and décor.  Here are the best images of the best of the best.  Enjoy!
