Why Lucky Fish?
We know Southern Africa from our travels and shoots over the years. Africa excites us and our attention to detail, understanding of the continent and refining of what is really needed puts us way up there. And we like to laugh a lot when we do it.
Our clients trust us and come back year after year. But we don’t only service productions, we produce international and local work too with an excellent understanding of post production and have a handful of directors to choose from.
Cape Town is like a world in one city when it comes to locations – from contemporary city locations, to long white beaches, rugged mountains, deserts, city scapes and beautiful open roads. The city can look very much like Europe and the USA with charming coffee shops, city streets, leafy neighbourhoods and a wide variety of houses and lush gardens. Just an hours drive out of the city we have rolling vineyards, green fields, farms, rugged mountains, lakes and rivers with tumbling waterfalls. We can take you to sea and if it’s animals you want we can organise that too.
But Cape Town is not the only attraction, the rest of South Africa and Africa have more traditional African locations and wildness of all kinds. If it’s animals, we can show you meerkats to elephants and help you find a pangolin too. Tropical palm tree beaches with crystal clear lagoons are just a quick flight away, just ask us what you are looking for and we’ll dig deep to find it for you.
We have run three shoots in South Africa through Lucky Fish and they were, hands down, the best experiences I’ve ever had with location services.
From the visa process through to final invoicing we have really open, helpful and positive comms. We had quite complicated requirements with both stills and video two back-to-back shoots - they had great location suggestions, essential local knowledge, and were able to secure everything on our wish list.
I have worked with Lucky Fish Productions for the past 10 years and they are my top production company of choice.
The flexibility to work on high end large projects to the simplest content productions is such a bonus and they show the same enthusiasm and professionalism no matter the size of project.
Lucky Fish is a great company and Platon is a very experienced Producer.
We have shot many multi-day TV commercials as well as documentary-style web content productions, always like a breeze.
They really really understood our production and the way we work, and were fantastic at creating good will, striking fair deals with local people and places. We worked with highly skilled, hard working and fun local crew, and came in on or under budget on every line.
Platon is a joy to work with; solid resourceful and quietly one step ahead of everything - everyone from cast, crew and client loved working with him. I have since recommended Lucky Fish to several colleagues and all of them have come back with glowing reports. I would't hesitate shooting in SA and using Lucky Fish.
The planning, on set and post knowledge and experience they provide ensures everything will run smoothly and Platon is quick on his feet whenever there’s an unforeseen challenge.
The best part is we always have a fun shoot.
