Locations for Hire in South Africa & Film Location Library
South Africa is one of the world’s top locations for film, television and commercials. Excellent crews and equipment, diverse geography, low costs, state of the art studios, good exchange rates and long days of sunshine combine to make it a popular choice for international producers. What’s more, South Africa’s very supportive government has introduced attractive incentive regimes for foreign producers.
Cape Town is world famous for the huge range of locations within a 1-2 hour drive. Aside from cityscapes there are beaches, mountains, forests, deserts, vineyards and farming landscapes (but see permits section for current concerns). Also important is Gauteng Province (the area surrounding Johannesburg). This boasts a developed infrastructure, an established film industry and locations that range from “the urban and industrial landscapes of Johannesburg to gold mines, small towns, nature reserves and botanical gardens, monuments, historical buildings and the majestic Magaliesberg mountain range.” Pristine cave formations and savannah grassland are also accessible. South Africa is a good base for getting out to exotic locations like Namibia and Mozambique, though producers tempted to work here need to be aware of the potential for greater bureaucracy and language issues.
