A fresh hello as we plug in from the Durban ICC, home of the Tourism Indaba – Africa’s Top Travel Show! Skybok has enjoyed 2 full days of trade, networking and touring Durban as part of the media delegation for the convention. We enjoyed meeting the Head of Durban Tourism, Phillip Sithole, and also the CEO of South African Tourism, Thulani Nzima. A tour of the Inanda Heritage Route organized for media was most insightful as delegates explored famous spots as part of our country’s history. These included the home of John Dube – founder and first president of the ANC – and the home of Ghandi when he lived in South Africa for 20 years in 1894 and where he founded the Natal Indian Congress to agitate for Indian rights. Today is the last day of the convention and we aim to make the most of it, doing some film work in between discovering dynamic businesses in the trade. See all of our photos from the Indaba here and from the Media Beach Carnival (opening night) here.
Yokhuselo Haven for Abused Women exists to offer women and their children a safe haven from family violence. Located at 12 Prospect Hill in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, their Crisis Centre has helped thousands of abused women over the pat 25 years. We filmed this video profile for them in honour of the 25 year anniversay. It’s slightly more unusual than other profiles we’ve done as it features interviews with the abused and with the volunteers. We also captured some prominent faces in the local Algoa Bay community saying a few words of thanks and congrats to the haven for all the work they’ve done over the past 25 years. It was very moving filming & editing it. I hope that this video will help raise their profile in South Africa, as well as awareness that abuse is a real issue in the region. And that – thanks to them – there’s somewhere to turn for those suffering from it. Thank you Yokhuselo for all the good work you do!
We shot this corporate video for the “Oh My Gosh!” Group launching in the UK. It was a pleasure doing business with them. We got some great crowd shots for the video as they were holding an event that evening, and we also got some nice interviews with prominent local faces. Enjoy!
Skybok covered events for Rotary PE West as part of their “Medieval Festival”. It’s a whole weekend of festivities themed around the Middle Ages and it’s hosted at Victoria Park in Port Elizabeth. Their “Royal Banquet” is on a Friday night where everyone arrives dressed up in costumes from the Middle Ages. There’s a dinner and lots of entertainment! During the Saturday, they host an entire day filled with arts, crafts and activities that people used to play during Medieval times.
Here are the profiles of this awesome outdoor two-day event:
