Music Venues We Loved Filming


1 Comment

The South African music scene has evolved so much in the last decade. I personally love listening to one of our top DJ’s, ‘Euphonik’. Check out my Spotify playlist of South African artists to hear his sound along with many others.

Skybok was fortunate to film some incredible music venues that contributed to the country’s music scene by providing platforms for local artists to reach new audiences + connect with old ones.

Here are stand out places we filmed in various cities:

Grahamstown

East London

Cape Town

Port Elizabeth

Tamika Doubell Business Women Entrepreneur

I was honoured to receive an award at this year’s Business Women’s Association of South Africa’s Regional Business Achiever Awards. Held at The Crystal Towers in Cape Town, I was thrilled to receive this recognition of distinction in business as an entrepreneur in the film industry! Skybok is all about connecting South Africa. I look forward to our exciting future doing so. I am very blessed that I was able to turn something I am passionate about into a profitable venture. It’s exciting to have been named in amidst such successful women across the region in all industries. I am proudly South African and marvel each day at our beautiful country and our people. Thank you, BWA!

Chart Farm and Coffee Terrace


No Comments

We shot Chart Rose Farm’s video profile over the weekend. It’s a divine coffee terrace and rose picking farm in Constantia, Cape Town. As the only place in the Cape Peninsula where you can select and pick your own roses, Chart Farm offers a unique experience for visitors. The Coffee Terrace serves teas, cakes, breakfasts and lunches. Along with the magnificent views of the Constantia Valley, it’s a great meeting place. Open daily from 9:00am – 4:30pm, the farm stall alongside the terrace offers fresh farm produce (in season), including lemons, limes, grapes, chestnuts and vegetables.

Charly’s Bakery


No Comments

We recently shot at the famous Charly’s Bakery at 38 Canterbury Street in Cape Town. We enjoyed some great weather and awesome crowd shots of happy customers feasting their eyes on all the delicious treats!

Check out their awesome website here and join them on facebook here. Watch this space for their video, soon to be added to our online database and our YouTube Channel.

Located in District 6, Cape Town, Charly’s Bakery is a family run business which was begun by Charly and Jacqui Biess in 1989. It specialises in “Mucking Afazing” designer cakes for all occasions, as well as a range of fun and bright cupcakes, petit fours, cookies and other yummies.

Over the years the business has grown and their 3 daughters, Alexandra, Daniella and Roch have joined them in creating their crazy, magical, glitter-filled world of Oompa Loompas, Luf Luf and decadently Wicked Chocolate Cake.

Their philosophy is to innovate, not imitate, and that the more you give the more you’ll get ♥
