A young female detective is spurred into action when her friend’s daughter disappears. She elicits the help of another friend, a Jewish, Xhosa speaking ex gangster and together they investigate which leads them from Woodstock into Milnerton.
The short film is created, directed and produced by 3 females in Cape Town. This short is needed to apply for funding for a tv series to be used as a much-needed vehicle of upliftment. We have been truly blessed to be chosen to share our talent and be a catalyst for change in our city and country.
Film is one of the few entrepreneurial avenues allowing for growth in employment for the disadvantaged who are unable to formally study further.
The short film is based on current affairs and is a precursor to a fully funded TV series of the same genre and style.
With more than 30 years’ experience and blessings, Erin Abrahams, Claudia Odunlaye and Nana Lomingo are envisioning making a considerable contribution to purposeful living, no matter race or creed.
We have seasoned cast and crew who share our passion and energy and have offered many different services pro-bono. There is international interest in the short and the fully funded TV series.
This project is a fresh look short film with big goals to break stereotypes, entertain with comedy and action while making sure we deliver a quality locally produced and educational film. The actors will bring a serious issue to life while keeping you glued to your seats.
The catering was quoted at R150 per person, we will have about 77 cast and crew per day for 5 days so the total is R57 750.
Insurance for cast and crew is R17 per person per day that is R6545, additional R2500 estimated for equipment and vehicle insurance.
I have been a South African bonded Key Film accountant for many years and will be in charge of managing the budget and therefore the funds. I have worked on very high budget films and have found that keeping a good record of actual expenditure and having regular cost reports to show where we are under or over has played a huge role in being able to stick to the budget.
Between the three ladies from Kaapstad Filmworx, there will always be two ladies authorizing the use of funds so it will never be an autonomous decision taken by any one person.
