(Wayne, New Jersey--August 30, 2014) The digital film world is seeing another wave of technological upheaval as progress and innovation shifts productions from 2K and HD into the realm of 4K. South Africa is usually a little slower to adopt cutting edge technology as the cost of production tools can be prohibitive, but with the release of camera systems, like the Sony F55, the world of 4K film production is getting a warm welcome.
Great news for productions headed to South Africa, this season is that at the high end of the spectrum, the Phantom 4K Flex
is now available locally. "Staying ahead of the game is what its about. We cannot afford to be offering yesterdays technology to Creatives that are at the cutting edge of TV and Film production. Technology and creative demand are leading the charge at a furious rate into the 4k world. " Falk Eggert from Highspeedworx
commented. He went on to say that; "The availability of Vision Researches new flagship camera in South Africa, will raise the bar in the film and commercial production in South Africa. We look forward to offering this new service to our international clients this season"
Several TV series, like "Black Sails"
and "Homeland Season4"
, have joined the fray and are taking advantage of what South Africa has to offer.
As the Rand has weakened against the Dollar and the Euro since last season, the climate for Film and Commercial production in South Africa is very favourable. Beautiful locations, experienced crews and value for money production, promise a lot of bang for the international buck.
