We laughed out loud at this awesome commercial shot at Enigma – the most talked about mansion in the country. The location lent itself perfectly to the concept of this commercial with its opulent décor and extravagant finishes. Enjoy!

Every 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:
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!

This property and its décor has been perfectly put together. From the double volume, architectural-wonder windows that make the most of an exquisite harbour view, to the whalebone staircase this villa is both charming and majestic. It has gracefully edged its way into my own personal top ten favourites. But enough description! Gape in astonishment at these gorgeous images.
This Constantia stalwart, The Alphen Boutique Hotel, has recently undergone an impressive transformation. With opulent interiors which show off the latest in interior fashion, such as gilded mirrors and bright, striped fabrics, it’s no wonder residents get wide-eyed with excitement when talking about the new hot local spot to sip on something colourful and carefree.
This TVC for Shoprite was shot at an old favourite location, Broadacres by Wishbones. The classic Constantia home provided the perfect backdrop for all the vastly different rooms as well as the outdoor patio.
I’m loving this exquisite, classically decorated home in Constantia, named Twillingate. Complete with English-countryside gardens, farm-style kitchen, glamorous chandeliers and charming fireplaces, it houses a tasteful collection of antiquities. Wooden bookcases adorn a gentleman’s study and the patio is perfectly protected from the elements, allowing the family to enjoy the outdoors in any weather.
This latest SPUR commercial, produced by Wishbones, was shot at classic Constantia home Mary Poppins. The shower was actually built from scratch and shot in the driveway:
Meet Renee Gowar, a focused and driven woman with a great sense of humour and a contagious laugh! Renee is our senior film location consultant who works closely with scouts, production companies and individuals needing help in the field. Unbendable about service delivery she upholds the brand in a way we are extremely proud of. Disarmingly unpretentious, Renee is a country-girl who is an accomplished Amateur Actress and regularly performs in local theatre productions. She is an absolute asset to our organisation and recently gave me a few minutes of her time to satisfy my curiosity…
How did you end up in the film industry?
I came to Cape Town wanting to be an actress, did a few commercials and some Stand-In work which was my first taste of the film industry. Sometimes I miss the buzz of being on set but I don’t miss the 14 hour days!
What led you to Amazing Spaces?
I was, first of all, a character agent but was looking for something new. My friend Maxine from Gavin Schneider Productions told me about a position available at Amazing Spaces and, well, the rest is history – I have been here going on 6 years now.
Tell me about your favourite work experiences
I think my favourite moments are when we consultants banter with each other to relieve stress or just because it’s fun and keeps it light in the office when we need it to. I love 4 o’ clock madness – when we play an old cheesy favourite to remind us not to take life too seriously.
What are the biggest challenges you face in your daily work?
I think juggling briefs, seeing scouts, setting up recces, negotiating rates, doing contracts, handling complaints, all in one day, can be quite stressful.
How do you overcome this?
My job is to find solutions so that’s what I do and I try not to react but to listen and then make a plan. Just Breathe!
How do you feel about the current season?
There has been a lot of negotiating this season with many of our clients losing jobs to Miami and South America based on prices so we have all had to work together to win them here. Shooting in Cape Town has been quite tough this season. It still surprises me how many residents in Cape Town are anti-film shoots when in fact they are such a great way of putting Cape Town on the map, bringing in revenue and creating skills for people who would otherwise be without jobs. That being said I have also seen a few new clients spring up and it’s great to see that happening in these tough times.
Where can we typically find you in your spare time?
On a stage expressing my theatrical side ☺
