Noticing a need for additional facilities, Quizzical Pictures acquired a beautiful series of warehouses in the Ferndale area of Randburg, Johannesburg in early 2014 and has began constructing and outfitting a studio and production facility spanning over 4000 sqm for their own use, but also for dry hire space.
Now, fully operational, the facilities include two 300 sqm shooting studios with good acoustics capable of handling various productions from music videos, commercials, television dramas and comedies as well as feature films; post-production suites for edit and final mix; production offices; dry hire space for audio and video control rooms; hair and make-up rooms; wardrobe rooms; green room; kitchen and catering area; art department workspace; on-site generators and all additional facilities required for a smooth running production. There is WiFi and in time, the studios will have live broadcast capability.
“This is something we have wanted to do for a long time,” says Quizzical MD Harriet Gavshon. “There is such a demand for studio facilities, for our own work and for other production companies. We wanted to create a facility which people like us – long form television production companies – can afford and which is geared to their budgets and needs.”
“As a progressive production company continuously looking at breaking new ground, we are excited to now own our studio space in which we can produce the best quality commercials and branded content,” says head of commercial productions JP Potgieter.
Located in Ferndale, Johannesburg, Quizzical Pictures’ Studios is easily accessible from Malibongwe Drive and a stone’s throw from MultiChoice.
