  1. I'm a DOP based in South Africa and I'm wondering what websites you use to seek international camera operators etc. Reason being, I'd love to work with more international clients and expand.
  2. Hello Guys Pls do check out the trailer for my shortfilm "5PM" I shot and directed it myself. Pls I need your advice and lessons! Thanks in advance
  3. Hey there I'm the DP on a tenacious short film project set in Zimbabwe without the budget (or balls) to go and shoot there. Team is looking for a colonial style farm house within LA area (90min radius max) that could double for Zimbabwe farm lands. Planning for extensive VFX BG augmentation/replacement, obviously, but a good start would be nice. Any ideas or experience with this?
  4. Hi all, I'm shooting a feature in Cape Verde this feb-march and although I've shot in Africa before (Burkina Faso & Zim), never a feature and at this level. Just wondering if anyone has any pointers on obvious issues and possible solutions to them? The whole shoot will be in a city with (albeit limited) access to power. Apart from the obvious issues of travel, accommodation, food & drink etc. the main issue we'll face is the light - top sun, dark skin tones, literally no golden hour (I think we'll be at around 17 degrees north), dark as death during the night, restricted access to power. Due to budget and logistical issues I have to be fairly careful with what we take over so I'm planning on using a lot of practicals-turned-film lighting, i.e. china balls, work lights. Also to fill frame & create interest, christmas lights, etc. By far most scenes will be shot during daylight hours so natural light will be no.1 but there are a few scenes during night. So have any of you shot in similar situations and have any pointers? I've read things like sowing white fabric under baseball caps while bouncing sun towards face etc. Any comments are appreciated. Thanks, PJ
  5. Hello everyone, sorry to bother! This would be my first post in this forum, I hope I won't disturb anyone with anything. In 2012, I spent a couple of weeks on the ancestral continent. From my raw footage, I managed to assemble a kind of a documentary, as you can see following the URL: The comments are welcome. Thank you in advance! Best regards, Eddie D
