November is here and we are hitting the last part of 2020 with a bang! With only two months left of this year, let’s make it one for the books and celebrate all of our achievements throughout this difficult, but yet exciting year.
Summer 2020 has come with a big bang in KZN as Telent-ETC expands its roots to our warm shores.
The response from Artists has been a testiment of the pools of talent waiting to be uncovered. So far out team is going vigorously through online submission and we want to sincerely thank each Artist that has taken the time out to answer for the call for submission.
We are looking forward to some great summer campaigns as season picks up and the country and industry get back to normal.
We wish each an every creative a great season ahead!!!!!!!!!!!
Season 2 of WQMD has started! We are excited to be part of this proudly South African award winning online web series, taking on topics about the LGBTIQA+-community. Join Shenay O’Brien, Tina Redman, Jodi Deerling and Jaco Smith-Venter every Monday with a new take on WQMD!

Awakenings in November
Glad to say things are picking up and the world is getting back up to speed. We are ending the year strongly and entering 2021 strongly too. It’s like the green button has been pushed and everyone is jumping at once. Dramas, realities, commercials etc..
In an exciting turn of events we have partnered with Safe Sets and are launching a training video campaign early next year that takes on issues affecting society and workplaces. Can’t say to much more than that at this stage.
We strive to build on the relationships we have made over the past year and look forward to growing more and more with each month. There is a huge amount of talent on our books. Many experienced campaigners and some taking their first steps in this crazy world of content creation.
Social-ETC just launched a new concept being pitched across the globe with our influencer #brandinhand #passiton campaign. Scan the QR code to go have a look.

Trust you are well.
Talk about October madness…Not only is our Durban division up and running, we also launched a campaign to focus on positivity in South Africa and signed some amazing fresh new talent to Talent-ETC in conjunction with various universities and drama institutions.
Some exciting news:
We are excited to partner with kykNET in working with some of Kwarantyn cast members in further developing their skills and talents. Welcome to the team.
Talent-ETC also signed our contract as official writers for a new sitcom. Our previous managing director, Rojean Serek, will be taking on the role as Head Writer on the project all the way from the UK.
Let’s push the rest of this year and make magic, the sky is the limit.
Love and light

From playing “Hlubi” on Generations: The Legacy, to being one of the hosts on Reno Race, Tina Redman is a well-known face across South African televisions. Tina is also part of the panel on the successful webseries, WQMD (We’re Queer My Dear) discussing topics regarding the LGBTQ-community. Season 2 of this series started a few weeks ago, but you can still watch all the incredibly inspiring episodes on mambaonline.com
You can also catch her as the presenter on one of the first episodes of The Talent Theatre – now streaming on Howler.co.za!
