This episode is about business, investors and marketing your craft but without losing that love of the art and the passion for growth in our industry and our beautiful country. I sat down with Monica Rorvik the head of the Film and Media Department at Wesgro. They are in charge of promoting the Western Cape as a filming location and media creation hub. We talk about the importance of knowing your audience and selling your ideas to investors in a language that they understand. We both agree that everyone in the industry should become involved in the associations, guilds and groups that exist here in order to find a support structure and to have your voice heard in the important business, government and legal decisions being made about our jobs, in the end communication is key. One that we spoke about is SWIFT, Sisters Working in Film and Television, see what they’re all about here swiftsa.org.za
