    Good morning to Sweden
    We can definetely help you to find crew in South Africa. Please contact me via mail

    Hi Julia

    Thanks for the info, have mailed you directly.



    Hi Julia
    Make sure of the company you are dealing with, recommend they should be members of the Commercial producers association. There are visa requirements for people coming to work in SA as well as unabridged birth certificate requirements for any children you may want to bring in to the country. I wish you a great experience and am happy to be of further help if needed.

    Hello Sweden.
    I see that you have quite a few offers of assistance already. wink films is also a production service facilitator in South Africa. But noticing that you want children to interact with animals, i image that a large amount of your filming would need to take place around and out of Johannesburg rather than Cape Town. We are associated to Velocity Films, who have a major presence and infrastructure in Johannesburg, so we havee local knowledge and people in that area.
    So please feel free to contact me if you are interested in talking further.
    Thanks Alison Ellard –
