CREW-ETC

August – The last month of Winter

We are into the last month of a cold winter and what a season it’s been. I must say it has felt a bit like a season of Game of Thrones with its winter doom and gloom. The overall havoc caused by the pandemic has disrupted the lives of millions and the television and film industry is no different.

But alas, there is hope. Spring is around the corner and there are a number of productions that are going to start pre-production, apart from the usual suspects that have already been back filming for a while. Drama’s, reality, as well as commercials, some that have already begun filming again. Although still no films on the horizon.

We’re going to keep plugging away and keep the faith that more and more productions will get going again. The landscape might have changed, but there will always be a need for locally created content. We are seeing a slow rise on our books and hopefully the traction keeps growing.

Stay safe out there.

VERNAC SAYING FOR THE MONTH

By Precious Magoswana

“Xa uziyekelela, uthi uzocholwa ngubani?"

“If you give up on yourself, who must do it for you?”

FINAL THOUGHT

By Jennis Williamson

Hi all

We are celebrating Women’s Month in August and what a great time to focus on the positive in these crazy times.

I salute the lovely women part of the ETC family, from the artists, clients, crew members, influencers and especially Precious and Thulani.

I salute your strength and courage and your eagerness to take over the world. The best way to describe the women in my life is a quote by Atticus;

“She wasn’t looking for a knight. She was looking for a sword.”

Empowerment is about more than just words, and may we as South Africans take hands and acknowledge and celebrate the women of our country…the true leaders.

Love and light
Jennis
