WHERE WE STARTED

 

 

GCV Productions is owned by Guy Crosbie and based in Durban South Africa since 2002.

Guy obtained a National Higher Diploma in Video Technology at the Natal Technikon City Campus in 1999.  He went on to win the prestigious Best Student award at the NTVA Awards the same year.

 

There was a transformation in the video industry, equipment was getting smaller and less people were required to operate it.  Guy used his knowledge of video production to cover all the different aspects of video, from camera operation to sound and lighting to editing.  GCV Productions became a one-stop shop for video production, this enabled Guy to work very closely with the client to make sure all requirements were met.

 

 Guy started off his career filming and editing corporate videos for Boxer Superstores in KZN, working closely with Andrew Mills, (Boxer Marketing Director) covering Conferences, Golf Days, Product promotions and training videos. Word of mouth spread and soon GCV Productions was filming for a number of clients in Durban and Johannesburg.  Clients included Special Investigations Unit, Nelson Mandela Foundation, FNB and Nampak.  In 2004 Guy was lecturing the subject of Video Production at the Damelin Campus in Westridge.  It was at this time that Manosh Seetharam, Graphic Design lecturer became a team player applying his advanced skills in 3D Animation and Graphic Design.  Shaun Colin, a student at Damelin, also came on board with great camera and editing skills.  Together the team has worked on great video projects.
