Late December saw the arrival of UK Musician Tinashe. Originally from Zimbabwe Tinashe wanted to return to his African roots to shoot his Album cover and PR images. The locations had to look hip, real and African. With Cape Town’s diversity this was not a problem.
Frank did a comprehensive location scout of the city and townships prior to arrival so no time wasted when the talent arrived!
To keep costs low and flexibility high, Frank provided a very small capable crew to enable the shoot to have maximum creativity and to get the most out of the locations and the budget.
The team shot in the Townships, which was a wonderful experience. So much ground had been covered in a couple of days that we all had time to enjoy the delights of a braai in Guguletu’s renowned Mzoli’s – a really unique wrap dinner!
Tinashe was such a good sport and even got out his colourful guitar at the airport to serenade the virgin Airhostesses for an upgrade.
The crew returned to the UK 1st Class – say no more.
