Dear Readers,

I am happy to inform you that the project page of our latest upcoming production went online today. Jozi ngaphakathi, which means "Inside Johannesburg", was conceived and planned as a single production. But our shooting in February 2019 was so successful that we decided to produce two episodes of Jozi ngaphakathi.


Status of the Post Production

Currently we've finished editing of the video for the first episode and are working hard on the text for our Voice Over speaker. The first episode will have a length of 17 minutes and will be produced in Full HD 1080p 60fps. The second episode will have a similar length. The editing is in full progress and we are already working on the text for the Voice Over speaker as well. Most of the footage was recorded with an iPhone 6s in 1080p 60fps. In addition, the "Live Picture" function of the iPhone was used for the first time.


Production Team

Both episodes of Jozi ngaphakathi were written by Sven Nemeth and Maggie Kwena Moabelo. Both have developed the format and are Executive Producers together with Jennifer Star. Sven Nemeth is the overall director. Xolani Matunya is new on board as Executive Consultant. We are happy to have won Mrs. Jennifer Sarah Boone as speaker again, who will accompany both episodes with her fascinating and empathetic voice. Jozi ngaphakathi was produced in cooperation with African Television Movie: South Africa.


Music in Jozi ngaphakathi

The music for both episodes was acquired from the Creative Commons Music website and the Free Music Archive. Special thanks to the artist PETITE VIKING. With her written consent she provided us with two songs under CC-BY-ND license free of charge. In return she received our permission to post the project on her Facebook page with a reference to her music.



The official wallpapers for both episodes are already online. Our Connected Users on Vero had already gained exclusive insight in April.


Both episodes will be published on our website in late summer this year. One week later each episode will be released on our YouTube channel.

The episodes will be released as usual in 3 quality levels. The Full HD 1080p 30fps and the SD 480p 30fps version will be directly integrated as video windows. A Full HD 1080p 60fps version is also available for download.



As with every project, the two Jozi ngaphakathi episodes have their own wallpaper and the project page is accessible via their own .DE domain.
