We are Filmworks South Africa. Lisa Buschek (Managing Director) and Rob Neuhold (Executive Producer), long-term Filmworks family members, have also recently welcomed the Filmworks Group’s Marketing Manager, Brett Fourie, to our South African family. Brett comes from a background in traditional, digital and retail advertising and has the scars to prove it.

In order to develop an industry, it is imperative to attract the right calibre of experience and professionalism. Filmworks was directly responsible for bringing the Kodak film laboratories to the UAE, while also forming joint ventures with Arri Media, London (a leading equipment rental company) and now our very own internal Post Production house,Filmworks Post.
In recent years the Filmworks Group has expanded worldwide and we are able to offer the same high standard of work through our other offices in Abu Dhabi, Beirut, South Africa and Los Angeles. These locations enable us to provide our clients with the very best choices and production values possible.
