We have developed and produced two seasons of our own TV show for SABC 3, a children’s TV show on recycling, called Garbage Gallery. This was commissioned by SABC 3 and has appeared on SA TV screens since November 2010. This is the first in-studio TV show to be fully produced in the Eastern Cape. Watch video here
Film and Documentary
Branching out into film and documentary is the latest evolution of Fly Piggy Fly. In 2012 having produced an Ethiopian feature film and location assisting on a short film for the Dubai market, the next stop was a documentary in 2013. NYEmaar video here
The Documentary, The Invisible Ones, follows the life of street children in Port Elizabeth and breaks through mis-conceptions of life on the street. The documentary, co-produced with an American funder, hopes to break into the international market by attending film festivals towards the end of the year.
TV Studio and Gear Rental
Fly Piggy Fly has an all new TV studio called Bay Studios which is the first TV Studio in the Eastern Cape. All facilities are for rent including: studio space, lights, sound, cameras, infinity curve, a green-screen and sound recording studio.
In a country where the majority of the population live in semi-rural and rural areas, it is bizarre that the majority of TV shows are produced in two of the country’s most built up and urban cities, Johannesburg and Cape Town. Fly Piggy Fly Media has positioned itself as TV producers in touch with the country we serve, introducing the country to the ‘Homeland’ of the Eastern Cape by offering an international standard of location production in rural areas.
Partnering with the SABC, NBC Universal, ABC News, DSTV Parliamentary Channel and KYKNet (MNet) we have produced Eastern Cape content for national and international TV shows. From sports to hard news, magazine and lifestyle pieces, our ENG Crew have the Eastern Cape covered for national producers. Add a regional element to any TV show by commissioning us to produce your local content.
