We are thrilled to welcome two new team members to the ETC team, Tania de Villiers as our additional crew agent and Thabo Johnson as our new scout and junior agent in training. Their knowledge and expertise in their respective fields will surely help push the ETC brand to the next chapter.

We are excited and grateful for so many opportunities thus far in 2022, and of course for our team to grow.

CREW-ETC

By Frankie Opperman​

I can’t believe we’ve already burnt through a quarter of the year. It’s been a crazy, but great period on the Crew-Etc front as we continue to connect our talented freelancers to new and fresh productions. 

This month we take the opportunity to welcome Tania de Villiers to the TETC family. Tania will be joining the Crew-Etc team as an agent and all round admin ninja. We are very excited to have her onboard and having an extra pair of safe and capable hands goes a long way as we continue to expand across various borders. 

Enjoy the seasonal changes into Autumn and as always, do reach out for any productions that need crewing up.

Durban is busy mid-season and it’s great to see that post covid the creative pulse of our province still fights to keep alive. We are proud to have our talents Wandi, Roel and Wade on key soapies that are hits in KZN. You can catch them on the riveting UZALO and IMBEWU.

Justin had the pleasure of attending the Hollywood Bets Durban July announcement party which was a great indication of how activity is slowly getting back to normal.

The Durban International Film Festival will also be happening and it’s exciting to see that they have added a virtual component to the structure of the film festival allowing for national and international engagements.
