The Artscape Theatre Centre, which belongs to the provincial administration, was opened on 19 May 1971 as the Nico Malan Theatre Centre.
In line with the new South African political dispensation and the concurrent changes to the complex, it was renamed to “Artscape” in March 2001.
Shooting their official video profile for Skybok was an honour.
I love the Artscape myself and I remember going to see many an Opera there!
One of the perks of having a business in online video profiling showcasing South Africa is in fact just that… getting to see all these magnificent venues that are an absolute credit to South Africa!
Being proudly South African, my heart warms up in amidst the cold of Cape Town’s winter when I get to shoot places like these.
- Not to mention meeting all these fantastic people behind the scenes who are involved in keeping them running!
Editing for hours on end and recording all the voice overs becomes so worthwhile when the final product in done and I watch the profile of whatever venue I am busy with… whether it’s a wine farm, golf estate, nightclub, restaurant, coffee shop, hotel, school, resort or this – a theatre as well as a point of interest thanks to it’s huge role in the history of the Western Cape.
A big smile spreads across my face when I know I’ve done a venue justice!
One of those instances was when I completed The Artscape.
Thank you to everyone there for being professional, efficient and co-operative as we all collaborated to make this happen.
