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:

Strawberries & Cream
Pearl Bay

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!

Newest Homes, Hotels and Commercial Locations in Cape Town

Gorgeous AS 2012-002

South Africa, Cape Town specifically, is known for its diverse landscapes, assorted properties, contrasting architectural styles and varied cultures.  The vast array of vistas, terrains and locations available make it a very popular shoot destination for a great number of countries.  South Africa alone served as 57 different countries in the movie Lord of War, specifically due to its ability to stand in as just about anywhere.  We pick our Cape Town properties for their diversity and their international appeal as the market we serve here comprises about 85% international work.  This means that the majority of print and commercial advertising you see being made here is actually for export.

Here are all the properties added to the portfolio within the last six weeks:

El Dejo – Frozen in time

ASOS magazine shot with Bigsky Productions in Cape Town in the archetype 1970’s house called El Dejo. is one of the leading global online-only fashion and beauty retailers and its ASOS magazine is now 18th most read magazine in the UK with a readership of 450 000 people. The editorial was shot by Alex Sainsbury and styled by Richard Sloan, the model was Alessandra Cirotto From Ice Models.

The El Dejo House, listed with Amazing Spaces, is a location that has been frozen in time – like someone simply pressed pause. It is exactly this attribute that made ASOS choose this location for one of their magazine editorials. The strong American West-Coast architecture, with its period furniture and features, make this house a spectacular example of 70’s lifestyle. The interior is not so much a statement but a feeling of the times, which is the case with so much of this house. Its rounded arches and its well established garden make finding a spot to shoot easy and inspirational.  Perfect for any shoot searching to recapture the spirit of the 70’s or reinvent the seventies in a modern and chic way.
