More investment will follow BPO giant Into South Africa

first_imgTeleTech is the first multinational company to benefit from a new incentive plan launched by the Department of Trade and Industry (dti) which has identified the business process outsourcing sector as a major future source of employment.“The BPO industry is poised for significant growth in the near future and South Africa is an ideal location to set up base,” says Johnston. “We deliver competitive advantages compared with other countries in terms of our geographic location and time zone, the quality of our infrastructure, our human resources and the widespread usage of English.”The Colorado-based TeleTech Holdings Inc is one of the largest global providers of BPO solutions. Construction of its new facility in Salt River, Cape Town, started today at a ground breaking ceremony attended by senior government officials.TeleTech has already announced that it plans a number of new facilities in South Africa. This will lead to the creation of thousands of new jobs in the BPO industry. The company already employs more than 50 000 people in 18 countries and Cape Town is its first base on the African continent.Ms Johnston says the TeleTech investment is a high-profile example of the success of the trade and investment missions organised jointly by the IMC and the dti. “For the past five years we have conducted at least one mission a year – twice to the USA, Europe and the UK, and in October this year we went to India for the first time.“We use these missions to inform the business communities in these countries about opportunities and prospects for trade and investment and to connect them with local contacts.“I am optimistic that we will see an increasing flow of trade and investment from companies that have come to know South Africa better through these visits,” says JohnstonENDSIssued by: Meropa Communications On behalf of the Department of Trade and Industry and the International Marketing Council of South Africa Enquiries: For more information, or to schedule interviews, please contact: Lauretta Theys: Meropa Communications Telephone: 083 444 4755, Email: [email protected]last_img read more

The Mood Board: Set the Tone for Your Next Short Film

first_imgWhile there are no set rules for what goes in a mood board, I’m going to show you a few things you can include to help convey your film’s vision.The pre-production phase of a project is extremely important. In my last tutorial, I went over how to create a pitch deck, which is essentially a sales presentation of a film idea. I use this document to entice cast and crew members to join my team.One of the most important elements of my pitch deck is the mood board. A mood board helps convey the look and tone of the film. The visual language of film is all about framing and composition. It’s an important aspect of the filmmaking process that you’ll want to spend some time thinking about during pre-production. Putting a few ideas down on a mood board will help when it comes time to work with a DP.For my project, I want to use a lot of reflection shots. This’ll include a reflection shot of a car window, and several reflections from a mirror in an apartment. I also want to experiment with only showing the face of my main protagonist. I will capture all of the secondary characters with over-the-shoulder shots and wide shots when their faces are concealed.LightingLighting is another aspect of filmmaking that’ll significantly affect the tone of your project. Since I’ll be shooting most of my scenes in a small Parisian apartment, I won’t have the luxury of having a lot of lights on stands. To solve this problem, I’ll block my scenes to harness the power of the natural light coming from window sources.Color PaletteColors can evoke emotions and symbolize important themes and elements of a character or location. They’re another important part of the visual language, so you should include them in a mood board.Color palettes can help when you’re collaborating with the art director, costume designer, and cinematographer. For my mood board, I’ve taken color samples around Paris, including the metro and several cafes, just to give me a good starting point. My film touches on the themes of jealousy and truth, so I’m using colors that represent those themes, including mixtures of blues and greens. By mixing the blues and greens, I’ve come up with a few turquoise color palettes that’ll work well.Similar ProjectsEven with all of the categories above in my mood board, people still struggle to visualize the project. Sometimes it’s easier to just reference another film that inspired the look or idea of your project. For example, the various themes I’m exploring are very similar to an episode of Black Mirror called “The Entire History of You.” This is a popular show available on Netflix, so it’s a safe bet to throw this reference in the mood board.Again, the categories of your mood board will vary depending on the vision you’re trying to communicate. To get started on your mood board, head over to Shutterstock.com for some visual inspiration.Interested in the songs we used to make this video?“Powder” by Lewis UnoLooking for more tutorials on filmmaking and video production?

This’ll help drive casting decisions and bring people into the world I want to create. I’ll also throw in a brief description of the character. I don’t need to be exhaustive here, as I have a lot of additional character information in the full pitch deck. This’ll serve as a teaser.LocationsI have scenes taking place in a handful of locations, including an apartment in Paris, the metro, several streets, and the exterior of a cafe. Adding images here can help give references to the look of each location, as well as ideas for set design and props.Wardrobe and PropsWardrobe and props are important on-screen elements. My protagonist is a journalist who works from home, only going out for the occasional interview or meeting. At home, he’ll be casual. When he goes out, he’ll wear a trench coat, jeans, and tennis shoes. He’ll carry a messenger bag that has a notepad and a small laptop.A mobile phone will also serve as a key prop for the film. In several scenes, he uses a map application, tracking his fiancée’s location via a blinking marker. He also has a mirror in his apartment, which will play a key role in the cinematography of the film.Visual EffectsThe blinking marker in the maps application will be a visual effect, so I want to include reference images from Google Maps. This’ll make the process much easier for my visual effects artist so they won’t have to waste time finding their own reference images from scratch.Framing/Compositionlast_img read more
