Filming in the Bo-Kaap

If you’re visiting Cape Town’s city centre on a weekend you’re very likely to cross paths with a film crew.  Cape Town has become the favoured go-to destination for production companies, particularly the overseas advertising market.

On my last visit I bumped into two.  In the colourful Bo-Kaap it was nice to see who lives behind all the colourful facades as residents came out to watch the proceedings, while in Long Street where we were having lunch later, traffic was brought to a halt as a high tech drone was put through its’ paces for a good twenty minutes.  So glad I was having lunch and not gridlocked in the Long Street traffic, as the heat was oppressive.

Without further ado, meet a couple of Bo-Kaap residents:
