I am an executive producer at the Global Productions Division at Urban Brew Studios, which is the biggest TV production house in Africa. Our unit is primarily focussed on conceptualising and producing content for the international market. I occupied the position of senior factual commissioning editor at the SABC, South Africa's public broadcaster before joining Urban Brew Studios.
We are keen to enter into joint ventures with independent producers from all over the world. Our unit have formal working agreements in place with some of the top 100 companies in the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe and have a number of agents managing and marketing our content slate globally. Urban Brew Studios is a fully resourced facility, with world class post production facilities, studios, outside broadcast vehicles and broadcast facilities. South Africa have great tax incentives, and this coupled with a favourable exchange rate, makes production and post production in South Africa very lucrative for foreign producers.
