CY market 2018

CY Market 2018 @ Stoneshed

Once again, the CY Market exceeded all expectations when it was hosted at the Stoneshed on a Durbanville farm only a few kilometres from the town. Not even a rain shower on the first day stopped hundreds of visitors from browsing this famous yearly market which has become an annual Durbanville event for many residents in the area and surrounds.

This year’s theme for the CY market was “Patterns”. The theme was carried through in the stalls and decor and a lot of effort has been put in to make sure this market is a feast for the eyes.

This video showcases only a glimpse of all the market has to offer, ranging from décor, clothing, artisan shoes, jewellery and items for children. There’s also more than enough food and beverage options for the hungry ones as well as ample activities for the little ones!

MJ & Jessica

MJ & Jessica’s Wedding

An old friend of mine, MJ, decided to get married to the love of his life, Jessica, on Geloftedag last year. It was an honor and great privilege to have been part of their special day and to capture their wedding on video as well as join in on the fun and laughter that was in no shortage.
This event took place in the Matroosberge just past the town of Ceres. Friends and family came from all over to witness their vows and promises on this sacred day beneath the pine trees.

Thanks MJ and Jessica for making me part of this day and I wish you all the best for your future together!

CY MARKET 2017 @ Stone shed

This year the CY Market was hosted at the Stone shed Venue on a farm just outside the Northern Suburbs village of Durbanville. The farm setting was perfect for a break away shopping and browsing adventure with items for everyone in the family. There stalls sell anything from home décor, clothing, artisan shoes, jewellery and items for children. Then as soon as you get hungry there is a range of food trucks and stalls selling delicious meals and take away food items like olives, pastry’s, fudge and biltong. For those who get thirsty after such a day of browsing and shopping, there is refreshing craft beers and wines to cool off with, whilst the children can play outside. Herewith our short video showcasing the CY Market 2017 that we filmed. Next year you’ll need to experience it for yourself.

Video is a perfect tool for showcasing events to an online audience. Here’s another example from another and completely different event where video tells a story.

A big thank you to Anna from Nova Films for helping out with the drone filming.

endoscopy, knee

Knee Endoscopy Procedure

In this video you can see amazing endoscopy technology being used in a knee procedure performed just outside Cape Town by these skilled doctors.

The patient’s knee is being fixed by the doctor only making two incisions where the high-tech camera and tool penetrate to clean up the knee. This technology allows for high definition image management that puts the doctor in complete control of what is happening inside. The doctor can oversee the entire procedure by just looking on the screen that links up with what he’s doing inside the patient.

For more promotional videos, please have a look at this example where Olliele Roux tells his story.

 

WESSA

WESSA Birthday celebrations intro

WESSA is the oldest nature conservation organisation in South Africa that was founded in 1926! Wessa stands for Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa. They aim to ensure the long-term preservation of South Africa’s fauna and flora.

Thus it was with great joy that they celebrated their 90th birthday last year and wanted to send a message to all their staff, supporters and the people of South Africa.

So we helped WESSA to create a short message to the people and herewith is the creative photo slideshow that we helped put together to serve as an intro for the messages.

This example is a creative way in which to showcase photos or archives for interested viewers. Add a voice – over and a song and that’s it!

Happy Birthday!

Ear Institute

Ear Institute & Kyk-net “give back” initiative

Kyk-net was kind enough to sponsor little Johannes with a brand new hearing aid, fitted by the Bellville Ear Institute, after his grandmother entered the competition on his behalf. The whole family came along to witness the joy and excitement on his face and to hear the story told by the caring grandmother of how this amazing prize was won. Short videos like these are ideal to bring inspiring stories to your clients and/or potential clients and can be adapted for various means to an end.

Corporate Marketing Video

When a company wants to show potential clients exactly what it is they do, there is no better way than showing it with a professional corporate marketing video. Yes, statistics, ROI’s, meetings and explaining can work in many instances. But if you want to add some Gummi Bear juice to the mix one should consider a short promotional video for the extra impact.

Because videos consists of moving imagery, sound and music, it has the potential to convey more than just information. It can actually convey emotions of trust, professionalism, and efficiency on a whole subconscious level to the viewer. I don’t need to tell you that many buying decisions are made on an emotional level in combination with rational thought processes.

This is exactly what the aim of this video was when we combined client service/product statistics with visuals to create this corporate marketing video for them.

Corporate marketing videos such as these ones can be used on websites or put on branded USB sticks (see below) to be handed out to potential clients to help seal the deal.

I’m talking too much, please go ahead and have a look…

CY market 2016, Durbanville

CY Market 2016 at Meerendal

Another year has flown by and the CY Market 2016 team has outdone themselves this time around with an outstanding market. This year they have moved the venue to the esteemed Meerendal Wine farm on the outskirts of Durbanville, Western Cape. Marketing videos like this can really help to convey to the viewer how it must have been to be there.

There were items for sale and things to do for everyone. Yes, even the men! Ranging from clothing, décor, accessories, furniture to the most delicious food items for the whole family. The market has grown exponentially in size this year, and the Meerendal Wine Farm farm could cater for everyone, with enough space and views of the surrounding country side to add to the ambiance.

Unique temptations for the taste buds at this year’s CY Market were, gourmet ice cream, Durbanville distilled rum, vodka and gin, craft beers, wines from Durbanville, smoked olives, baked goods, and an assortment of food stalls catering to all the hungry (and thirsty!) shoppers.

I can keep on telling you about CY Market 2016 or you can see for yourself. Have a look and see you there next year!

Simonsvlei wine farm is one of the leading South African wineries in the beautiful Cape Boland area. Simonsvlei wine farm produce and bottle wines on site that gets distributed all over the world. Since a lot of their clients are from countries that do not know much about South African wines and its history, they thought it best to tell them a bit more in this visual way. Simonsvlei wine farm’s promotional video tells the story to their local and international clients.

Promotional web videos can tell a story much better than just text and photos and the possibilities are endless as to how to go about telling this visual story. Have a look and see what can be done. Enjoy!

Walker Bay RC Flyers

Walker Bay RC Flyers Event

Having the privilege to film the Walker Bay RC Flyers event turned out to be a jaw-dropping, nail-biting and spectacular experience. I worked alongside the RPATS.aero team to capture the vibe and action of this memorable event in the Overberg, just outside Hermanus. The RPATS.aero cellphone app offers tamper-proof Flight Logging in the cloud for RC Pilots combined with aircraft administration and radar functionality. One can download the app for free and change the way you administer and manage your RC flying. The event was blessed with the presence of international champions of the likes of Martin Pickering, Neil Fergus and the Red Arrows duo team.

Have a look at the video and witness the aerial maneuvers and superb skill of these RC flyers.
