TALENT-ETC

By Eben Brink

September is the official Heritage Month in South Africa and on the 24th of September we will be celebrating all cultures across our beautiful country.

We are busier than ever at Talent-ETC with regards to actors, crewmembers and production. We have a lot of exciting plans for the future that we will share soon.

You can also enjoy our second installment of The Talent Theatre this month. You can read more about that at Life-ETC.

CREW-ETC

By Frankie Opperman​

Spring in our step

The month of September is upon us as we welcome spring with warmer weather just around the corner and with it many more productions.

After a testing period we are shifting into a higher gear this month. With a number of productions on the horizon, September to December will be a sprint to the finish line for the rest of the year. There is a serious need to make up for lost time as we continue tracking the leads that come in.

Crew-Etc has been busy with an amazing initiative that we can hopefully share more of next month.

Good luck to everyone this September and please continue following health protocols on each set you work on.

SOCIAL-ETC​

We have a new and updated Social-ETC site!

We have recently updated the site for Social-ETC for a more refreshed and simple look and feel. We are excited for a new chapter coming to Social-ETC and ready to start working with new brands, upcoming brands and trusted brands.

If you would like to be part of Social-ETC, please send your enquiry to social@talent-etc.co.za

VERNAC SAYING FOR THE MONTH

By Precious Magoswana

"Isiziba siviwa ngodondolo"

“You can't give up if you haven't exhausted all options”

FINAL THOUGHT

By Jennis Williamson

 

It is SPRING! We are in level 2 and it feels like some sense of normal routine has finally approached.

Quick updates:

  • The AGENCY team is working overtime to manage our current workflow.
  • TALENT THEATRE is creating a massive buzz and allowing the arts to grow even more.
  • Our updated VOICE section on our website is proving that less is more.
  • We received a government grant for a new online SOCIAL-ETC campaign, spreading awareness and kindness.
  • Our CREW division is bursting out of its seams with great placements on international projects.
  • We are in pre-prod with an amazing project and excited to put on my PRODUCING hat once again.
  • We are in talks with new partners in taking the TETC brand to new heights.

Although everyone is extremely tired and 99% of all actors feels they have been abused by the system, things are turning around at a rapid pace.

This however is not the time to relax, now we need to work harder and focus more than ever and fill whatever holes the Covid-19 lockdown has created.

Writer Margaret Atwood said “In spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.” As we already smell like the proverbial dirt from constantly planting ideas and dreams, may September bring more hope, life and fruition.

Love and light
Jennis
