Msunduzi Housing Association training video
Msunduzi Housing is a Non-profit Organization formed in 1999, based in Pietermaritzburg, KZN. At Msunduzi Housing they strive to provide affordable, quality integrated housing within the Umgungundlovu district as well as Northern & Western KwaZulu Natal. As a housing institution, it is defined as a legal entity, established with the primary objective of developing & managing housing stock that has been funded through grant programmes.
We were commissioned to shoot a training video for the new and potential residents, explaining the rules and processes that are involved when applying for this programme, right through until taking occupancy of one of the stock houses.
We sourced a presenter from one of our Durban talent agencies which then traveled to Pietermaritzburg for our shoot at the UKZN University studios. The shoot was set up with a white back drop and we used a number of lights to achieve the look and feel we wanted. Once we were finished with our studio shoot we organised an actor from the same talent agency and started our location shoot. We started off at the Msunduzi Housings offices in Peter Kerchoff Street, Pietermaritzburg where we filmed the induction process and signing of the housing contracts. We then moved across to the actual housing where we were shown the various rooms and facilities available. We followed our shot list and worked through our script throughout the day making sure our actor was kept busy. We used a number of our Canon Lenses from our Canon 70mm to 200mm to our Tamoron 24mm to 70mm which gave us a wide variety shots that we were happy with. We then started post production on the project which involved a lot of 2D animation, motion graphics and some basic 3D animation. We delivered the project in HD to our client and they are extremely happy with the outcome. They will be using the training video in there induction training as well as playing it in there waiting areas. We have since heard back from the client and the training video has been a success. We are very happy to have been part of this project.
