A South African NPO to hope for.

Nov 10, 2018 · 4 min read

Some say the year is almost over. Other say that it has only just begun. For me it’s all about knowing who you really are and where you hope to head out and explore this time of year. Everyone experiences their year-round highlight… “Their Best Moment”… at very different times.

Our company celebrated February 14th, “Valentine’s Day” in Welkom, South Africa, with the production of HOUSE OF HOPE’s Instagram promo film.

At Cignalhill (Pty) Ltd, we believe in full creative freedom when it comes to producing media, and full ownership of all of the media we publish, and it took us all year to complete this project. It might only be a 1 minute video and it might seem like the video should have been published already, but in some way I am glad that it is not yet finished.

Our music composer, Barend, is hard at work finalizing the 1 minute score, while our master cut will be edited by Juri, a former video director for Cignalhill (Pty) Ltd, South Africa.

Hennie and I will run the grade and final release of the video and we are really hoping for some substance with this piece we are showcasing to the world.

Right now, we are looking for International Partners, Clients, Production Entities and Media Groups to look at the context behind our video project, to possibly align with, and produce media for in 2018 and the next.

We are also looking for post production funds between 1000$ US, and 10 000$ US, for the benefit of Cignalhill (Pty) Ltd, and our production studio, where we hope to acquire another Imac to edit with, as well as a set of Rokinon Prime lenses to use for our next promotional film.

For those interested, we have a Payoneer Account linked to our South African Bank Account (FNB | First National Bank), that is both South African Tax approved by SARS (South African Revenue Service, as well as the IRS and US W8-BENE Tax forms.

Our aim for 2018/19 is to find US based Tabloid Media, Chinese and European Clients to Produce a Shorter and more impacting form of Social Media Films, that is both creatively free for the producer and also self-owned by the Partners and Investors.

We are able to fly to any country and produce a video project to meet any budget always delivering the very best in digital media products that include: Video, Design, Photography and Music.

We hope to publish our film by the end of September, and hand it over to House of Hope in Welkom, for their digital marketing ventures with hope to raise funds for their children and their well-being.

Meet the Crew:

Hennie Le Roux on the Camera, Rowen Smith did the talking, Juri Badenhorst edited the master cut, and not to mention all the awesome kids at House of Hope in Welkom, and their House Mothers, who we all appreciate and love.
