I’ve always had a thing for animals. Especially wild, endangered or hurt ones.
Along the coast in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, lies the “South African Marine Bird Rehabilitation and Education Centre”. It’s also known as SAMREC.
We shot their video profile for them and I just remember thinking what a beautiful home and haven the team at SAMREC has created for these birds they find washed up and hurt on PE’s beaches.
The centre’s purpose isn’t just to rescue and rehabilitate, but to also inform and educate the public through their different programs.Tour our marine rehab and education centre and experience nature through sight, sound and touch.
We shot this profile for Khayalethu Youth Centre in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. It’s mission is to provide intervention programs and alternative care for street children, specifically for boys, between the ages of 8 and 18. Their aim is to meet their basic needs through a holistic and developmental approach, with the ultimate aim of re-socialization and family re-unification.
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!
I’m very blessed in that, through the shoots we do for Skybok, I get to travel to so many different places, meet so many different people and – best of all – see amazing things. I’m remembering now back to a place we filmed in Cape Town called Vovo Telo.
It’s a trendy little bar at the waterfront and they are really well-known for their coffees and pastries. I also love their pizzas and artisan breads. I’ve realised that the coffee culture truly has grown both here and internationally.
On the day we filmed their video profile, I just stuck to a peach iced tea. I love them and BOS is my new favourite make! How about you? Are you a coffee fiend?
In the heart of a valley, only a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of P.E and Jeffreys Bay lies African Dawn Bird and Wildlife Sanctuary.
The park is home to several animals from South Africa and beyond including Cheetah, Servals, Lynx, Squirrels, Marmosets, Squirrel Monkeys, Blue and Common Duikers, Bushbok, Grysbok, Meerkats, Wallabies and a Crocodile.
For bird lovers, there are over 250 species of birds indigenous to South Africa and from further afield. Home to the largest aviary in the Eastern Cape, listen to the calls of birds such as the Knysna Loerie, the Laughing Dove and the vibrant Red Bishop. Other birds around the park include the majestic Black Eagle, Blue Cranes, Crowned Cranes, Hornbills, Emu, Lorikeets and Macaws. Visit their website here.
