DISCOP Johannesburg has announced a partnership with Sky Rink studios,
aimed at supporting independent producers working in Johannesburg. This years
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 in Johannesburg.
All of these productions will need sets, crews, production offices, fully equipped, sound
proofed studios, as well as editing suits and final mix facilities.
Sky Rink 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
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 Joburgs 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.
Patrick Zuchowicki 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 years
event. This kind of partnership is exactly where DISCOP aims to be as we continue to
find ways to support the industry on the continent.
Sky Rink 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.
