DISCOP announces partnership with Sky Rink Studios

Posted by radio On October - 26 - 2017

DISCOP Johannesburg is pleased to announce a partnership with Sky Rink studios, aimed at supporting independent producers working in Johannesburg.  This year’s DISCOP Johannesburg will be hosting over 300 African producers who could benefit from the resources now available at Sky Rink.

With the massive and ever-increasing interest in African content, there are more and more independent producers looking to do co-productions in South Africa and specifically Joburg.

All of these productions will need sets, crews, production offices, fully equipped, sound proofed studios, as well as editing suits and final mix facilities.

 

SkyRink Studios offers a one-stop shop with channel hosting and live transmission capabilities, tools that are critical for the growth of content made in Africa.

 

As part of this partnership, DISCOP will promote Sky Rink facilities via tours taking place during DISCOP where producers will have the opportunity to visit the facilities and Sky Rink will also have a space at DISCOP to showcase their various platforms and services.

 

Frank Mahopi, Executive Chairman of Sky Rink explains further, “As Sky Rink Studios we see this partnership as a great opportunity to showcase our facilities to the right target audience. Our high-tech facilities create a one stop shop located three blocks away from Downtown Music Studios in the City of Joburg’s Creative Corridor. The Sky Rink Studios and Downtown Music Studios present an immediate and effective solution for Producers on the continent and abroad looking for production facilities that will meet their high tech needs.”

 

PatrickZuchowicki of DISCOP also stresses the importance of a facility such as this in regards to the growth of the African content industry, “DISCOP is committed to supporting the growth of content made in Africa. Producers however, need facilities that understand and support them. We feel that Sky Rink Studios is just that kind of facility and we are excited to partner with them and share this valuable information with the hundreds of producers from across Africa who will be attending this year’s event. This kind of partnership is exactly whereDISCOP aims to be as we continue to find ways to support the industry on the continent.

 

SkyRink Studios stand can be found in the main exhibition hall at The Sandton Convention Centre, along with dozens of other major players from the African and global film industry.

 

DISCOP Johannesburg started on Wednesday October 25th and runs daily through Friday Oct 27th.
