This month we are focussing on Social-Etc, in assistant our influencer division with the right guidance in securing online opportunities within guidance of social media laws
Apart from this, our weekly online sessions and training have produced knowledge that will ensure longevity for our artists. We know, teach and understand the ‘business’ of showbusiness, a perfect balance between passion and admin.
It’s a new financial year and we finally closed the chapter from a business perspective on a challenging, yet fruitful 2020. Now is the time to soar.

2021 has kicked off with the speed of light. We are already into the 3rd month of the year. Can you believe it?
On the work side, Crew-Etc has been lucky enough to facilitate a variety of productions thus far ranging from narrative to reality formats. From Netflix to Mnet, we are getting Freelancers into critical positions on productions. Always on the lookout to expand, we are now hunting for skilled freelancers to join our books and hopefully link them up with new producers and productions.

There seem to be two schools of thought when it comes to branding for actors: the first being, people cannot be brands” and the second; we live in the 21st century! We are hit with branded messages every single day, and actor’s should be no different.” At the end of the day, an actor’s digital ‘image’ – and by that I mean their social media presence, as well as how they come across on screen – is definitely a part of the casting conversation.
Know your brand, stand out, be different, have your own marketing plan ready!
Love and light
