Mooirivier - South African Feature Film

Mooirivier feature movieMooirivier, a South African feature film written and directed by Rene van Rooyen, has just been released in Cinemas in South Africa. We provided the aerial footage with our Canon 5D on our octocopter drone in early 2014.

We loved working with this energetic South African crew! The film is set in the town of Potchefstroom, about 2 hours from Joburg. We shot a number of scenic and establishing shots in and around Potchefstroom and surrounds.

The film was released at cinemas in South Africa in February 2015.

"Great to work with your team"
-- Desmond Denton (co-producer)

Mooirivier boasts an ensemble cast of many well-known South African actors, and follows various love stories against the backdrop of Potchefstroom's beautiful and varied locations including the NWU University Campus.

Kaapland Films (who also produced Klein Karoo) is releasing their latest film just in time for Valentine's Day. The movie will be shown in Nu Metro and Ster Kinekor cinemas throughout South Africa.
