Hi guys, welcome to another blog from the no 1 Video Production Company Durban. In the previous blog I mentioned a very exciting project currently being filmed in KZN. I am happy to say its done and I am posting the video below.
GCV Productions and Pixel Craft Training filmed last week Wednesday at Durban Botanic Gardens. We wanted to try the new Blackmagic Cinema 4K Camera. We approached Caitlyn Grunewald, a young artist at Westville Girls High School. The concept is a small promotional video for Caitlyn. Location would be the lovely pond at Durban Botanic Gardens. A lovely location but close to a busy road so we knew the interview with Caitlyn would need to be done somewhere else.
We posted the behind the scene photos last week.
Nice sunny weather, awesome location, and good help meant we produced a lovely video. Please have a look below and tell us what you think.
Together we will produce a short promo video using the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. We are excited to see exactly what this camera is capable of doing. The location is Botanic Gardens, Durban at 12 pm. On set will be Manosh Seetherem and his assistant (PixelCraft Training) myself and Tristan Ambross (GCV Productions). The talent is Caitlyn Gronewald who is a young aspiring artist from Durban.
Below is a few photos taken from a preproduction location visit. We are looking at angle of sun, amount of people in the area and ambient noise. We are not closing the area off to the public so we need to visit with the public visiting the area during the shoot.
12 pm Winter in Durban means we have about 4 hours of good light but realistically we might only start filming at 1 pm. Pixelcraft will supply lighting but these are battery operated therefore we have 1 hour of actual filming time.
Location Recce is extremely important to get a feel for the environment and look for anything that can be a challenge when filming. Ideally visit the location at same time of day of filming. Look at angle of sun, shadows. Listen to ambient noise such as traffic noise, even the wildlife in the area. Loud birds such as the notorious Hadeda can interrupt an interview (if recording audio)
Our talent will be painting a pond scene, seated next to the pond and painting. We will work towards a similar image with the below….
So our location is ready, lets look at the camera gear.
So guys that’s a wrap for the pre production, we look forward to a very exciting day ahead and lets hope for a very awesome video to come. Watch out for the next blog and my youtube page to see the final video. And please visit www.pixelcrafttraining.co.za for their amazing work done, photos and videos.

‘GCV Productions‘, the no 1 video production company Durban has been working very closely with ‘In2Assets‘ creating property video walk throughs for homes and businesses in KZN. A video walkthrough allows the interested buyer to get a good feel for the property as though they are actually in the building. A friend of mine says that when looking for a property he first looks at the photos, if the photos appeal to him he will then view a video if there is one and then finally the next step is contacting the agent.
‘In2Assets’ video walk throughs are not long, roughly one minute in length with the property address at the beginning of the video and then auction details at the end. The main focus of the video is for the potential buyer to see size of property and condition. Quite often the properties are empty, and sometimes derelict. The owner would need to visualise what can be done with the property.
View the video above, video walkthrough filmed a property in Durban Central Business District. Short opening title of the property, rough description included. End title includes the auction details.
