Give a shout to Paul Gondwana, he's in and out of here quite a bit. He's from Cape Town. You can view his profile with his website and e-mail address by clicking on "Members" at the top, and then searching the Members section by his user name "Gondwana." I'm sure he'd like to hear from you!

Lekker (for those non South Africans a colloqualism for very well)

Would be nice to make contact when you get back. As to how things are back home perhaps should e-mail you rather than bore the forum. Please advise if this is O.K.

Regards
Andrew

Would be great, my e-mail is at the bottom. I haven't been on this board for months and I've just spent about 4 hours catching up on everything, time to hit the sack! When we get to SA we are thinking of settling in CT, my wife worked at the prestigious post-production/facility house in CT, the Video Lab and she hasn't stopped talking about CT for 4 years, HA! HA!

Greetings from South Africa!

Hi All,

I'm so glad that I found this site!

I've been thrown in the deep end by accepting employment as an Operations Manager for a guy that does wildlife darting, capture & cull in South Africa.

He now wants to shoot all his "adventures" and I've been assigned to run this project. From buying the equipment to filming and editing.

I'm gonna need all the help I can get!!

See you around!

Hi Jean,

Welcome, always good to see fellow South Africans on this forum. You will not have a dull moment and will meet many fine, helpful and informative people here.

One warning though, this forum gets addictive. Failure to visit regularly will result in cold sweats...uncontrolable shaking etc. but don't fear as this is easily remedied by regular participation.


I live in Alberton and am a XL-1 owner. I use a DVRaptor capture card and edit using Premiere. I will be happy to help out on the phone whenever I can.

Do a member search and yopu will find Didi Schoeman who lives near Tzaneen. I have spoken to him.

My numbers are;

+27 11 613 6731 (w)

+27 82 454 1948 (m)



Cheers
Andrew

Welcome aboard Jean. Glad you found the place. I can imagine
that everything will be a bit daunting for you in the beginning.
No worries, a lot of people are around here to help everyone
out.

Good luck with your projects!

Hi Jean,

I've just returned from the USA after about 5 years there and it's great to be back home!

I've been in the film & tv biz for 16 years and have finally got myself set up for shooting and editing in the field. Spent about $15,000 on all my gear so I'm sure I can offer you some help.

One of the reasons I came back to SA is to get involved in wildlife doccies. Currently talking to Cheetah Outreach, hope I can hook up with them.

Give us a shout if you need any help, hell, give us a shout anyway, would be great to hear more about your project.

Hey :D

Hey everyone,

I'm Aviv, 18, and from Cape Town, South Africa.

I'm a first year film student at CityVarsity (www.cityvarsity.co.za) and am planning on majoring in editing for my second and third year, this includes:

Premiere
AVID
Media100
Boris
After Effects
Combustion

I've been into filmmaking for the last four years, have a portfolio of my since dissolved partnership at www.neverdead.co.nr and my first film school project up at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ss6u0QyhDaQ

I have quite shoddy video equipment but a nice editing suite and am hoping to upgrade my camera setup (to DV :P)

I'm planning on making a career out of editing and earning enough capital to finance my own (write, direct, shoot, edit) projects. I'm also planning on starting up a videography business now to earn so money for future projects and leisure purposes.

Great to be here...

Hi all, the names Van Zijl. All the way from Cape Town, South Africa. Currently based in Vienna, Austria. Been backpacking through Europe, to get away from home and it all, met a beautiful girl here in Vienna and decided to stay before I move on. Anyways Im a self-declared filmmaker, 23yo, everything I know is self taught. All the stuff Ive done so far is back home. Just got a small set-up here in Vienna, so will start making movies again soon, and would love to share them with you all. Especially when DV7 comes around.

Anyways I love reading, writing, making music, doing animation, listening to music, watching movies (fiction/non-fiction) and quality TV series, making movies, arguing, playing pool, poker, vegetarian for 5 years now going onto veganism, drinking beer, what else? Not too sure...

But if anyone has any questions or comments, or wanna hook up, lemme know...

Great to be here...

Regards
Van Zijl

Welcome!

Welcome to (H)DV info net. Its great to have you aboard!
Mind if I ask what camera it is that you now have?

So what instrument do you play? and what style of music do you like?

The horrible drummer,
