Last week Shereen Amos of Sugarbird Studios and Valentina Mrslove put on a production like no other in our Church Studio. This was in association with SircuSynergy, with Lauren Amy Hoffmeyer and Rory Avenstrup. They transformed our Church Studio into a variety of stages making use of the curve as well as suspending acrobatic acts from the ceiling rafters. A canvas stretched over our Courtyard protected the welcome area from the elements and to carry the theatrical theme all the way through they even dressed up our security guard.
Here are the amazing team and cast that put this show together and if you want to see the performers in action
Back in 2008 we bought the dilapidated building across the road from our Church and Hall Studios. We listened to what Cape Town and you wanted from a studio and then we created it. Our Daylight building features daylight, drive in and modern kitchen studio facilities. Below are some before and after photos showing the amazing transformation of this old building to what is now regarded as home to some of Cape Town’s finest film and stills photographic studios.

M-Net’s proudly local channel Mzansi Magic’s brand new music reality show called Clash of the Choirs South Africa, is presented by the popular radio DJ, Social Media Queen B, Bonang Matheba. The series will bring ordinary people with a common passion for singing together. Seven musical celebrities travelled to a designated province to audition up-and-coming amateur choirs. For the Western Cape our Church Studio was the perfect location for the auditions with its naturally great acoustics and if the sounds we heard are anything to go by then this is a show not to be missed.
Here is a video of some of the hopefuls that came to audition at our studios in Roodebloem Road.
Legendary songstress Winnie Khumalo was in charge of selecting the 20-piece choir for the Western Cape auditions held at our studios on the 21 & 22 December 2012. At the end of the auditions, choirmaster Winnie Khumalo had this to say: “The Cape has talent, believe you me.”

This limited edition Diana F+ “Qing Hua” in blue and white has been lovingly decorated with vintage elements and traditional Chinese influences (known as Qing Hua Ci), in a collaboration with designer-illustrator Dorophy Tang.
