Wow, another year has gone past. It seems like time just moves faster and faster. 2010 is naturally going to be an exciting year for South Africa, with the obvious, The Fifa World Cup. But it's the other things that get us excited, such as Gautrain and the new lanes on all the National routes around Johannesburg. All this is very exciting and we can't wait to see it working on a daily basis.
Coca Cola are launching one of their new products in South Africa. A Proudly African beverage from Zimbabwe called Mazoe. Melon Videos are editing a video that showcases the roll out of Mazoe into the South African market, as well as an interview with the man behind Mazoe. Any great product needs a person who believes in it as much as this guy does. To see this video please fill out a contact form as these videos are not for public domain.
Coca Cola are once again busy getting ready for the 2009 Bottler Conference. Coca Cola South Africa has bottlers all over Africa and encourages BEE partners to invest into their Bottler Programmes. Bottlers that excel in sales, are rewarded greatly.. everyone from the truck drivers, to the managers. Melon Videos will be editing some footage showcasing certain Bottlers around Africa leading up to the Conference.
FNB have always believed in offering the best service to their clients and Melon Videos are here to make sure that everyone internally at FNB understands their policy of "Service that Shines" and "Passion in Action." The angle of these internal productions is to get the people at FNB talking to their fellow employees about "Service that Shines." All the employees will be filmed at selected branches and then a short production will be put together and used internally to encourage their staff to enforce these fundamental customer engagement rules. These videos are internal and therefore cannot be posted on public domains but please fill in a contact form if you wish to see these videos.
We have also been working on this years "Coke Zero Fest." Zebra & Giraffe and other South African bands will be supporting the likes of Panic at The Disco, Snow Patrol and Oasis. Coke Zero have been doing promotions all over the country leading up to this gig and Melon Videos have been compiling synopsis's of their re-launch and roll out into the markets.
Were once again in the edit suites working on a Nedbank Cup AV for HKLM. It's a lot of fun taking this great footage from the crowds at the games and making it our own. It really looks like the games are a lot of fun, and people are starting to get really stoked on the 2010 World Cup.
Its been a while since there was some 'news' over here, so I thought I'd quickly give you an update. We have basically still been hiding in the corners of the edit suites editing like crazy to get projects out. Probably the most fun for us, was working on the Nedbank Cup footage through their brand agent HKLM. HKLM really do a great job of making sure Nedbank always is represented, branded and marketed in the best way. We compiled videos for presentations, broadcast as well as internal.
We have been so busy over the last while it's been super motivating to keep on working. We have mainly been in the edit suites for a couple of weeks now working closely with other companies on all things Coca Cola. Coca-Cola is a proud sponsor of the Fifa World Cup and as time draws near, they are hosting all kinds of events nationwide. They are also the sponsors of the South African Rock Festival called Coke Fest, which happened over a month ago. It was a lot of footage to edit, but it was a lot of fun seeing how much fun people had at these gigs in Johannesburg and Cape Town.
Melon Videos is teaming up with Metropolitan Life to put together an awesome "Night of the Stars" production that will follow a Disney theme. Once a year, Metropolitan, awards and rewards their top brokers who have excelled in sales over the last year. For 2008 they had chosen the Disney Theme, and it really was a "Night of the Stars"
26 November 2007
The last two months have seen us travelling between Johannesburg,
Cape Town and Knysna for projects that we were working on. It
has been really interesting and the results have been really
rewarding, not only for the clients involved but for the melonvideos
During this time we worked on a family video that was produced
in the tightest deadline and taken to Australia to be viewed
at a wedding and we have footage of the tears that it created.
This was definitely one of the funnest jobs I have worked on.
Other than that, this site will be updated a lot in the next
few weeks so please keep checking back for progress. I really
see big things happening in the near future and this is due
to the fact that the team I am working with is amazing and in
a league of their own.
I hope you are all well and thank you for the support we've
received thus far. I wish you all the best for the upcoming
festive season and trust that you will be safe during this time.
