Fly on the Wall Productions

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Fly on the Wall Productions are a young production company fresh out of Cape Town, South Africa. Their client list includes brands such as Nike, MTV and the Discovery Channel.  The film above, entitled Circular Painting, was put together for Discovery Channel. It is a stop motion, timelapse, motion control shot within a circular canvas. The two minute film was made over a non-stop 12 hour period which saw numerous street artists, musicians, painters and animators contribute their time and talent. The theme for the film was the fate of the earth and the challenges we face in preserving it.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Fly on the Wall, again working with their client Discovery Channel, have also put together a series of  ‘portraits’. These are really beautiful video pieces designed to celebrate the life and flavour of South Africa. The portraits are generally about a person, place, feeling or thing that moves the creative team about South Africa. The portrait above, entitled Ubuntu B-Boys, is a standout. Gritty yet optimisitic – it makes me want to jump a plane to soak in the SA vibe.
