Stuff We've Done
Same Day Edits
nights of very little sleep
We’ve had nights of very little sleep, and intend to sleep even less!
Same day edits are about cinematically capturing the vibes at any event and finding cool, creative ways to show the story on the same day / night as the event. This is a cool way to hone our craft under pressure and the audience loves them!
pure romantic decadence and art
Everyday of your life is important, but on your wedding day, you’re going to need the right guys to pull off an awesome wedding video, and capture the day with all it’s heartfelt moments. Of all the cinematic gigs, weddings are about humour, pure romance and art. We boast well over 100 wedding video creations and have been bringing people to tears (in a good way!) since our first cut. Watch, cry and contact us here for a booking.
Dipna and Dimal: Hindu Wedding
A truly beautiful Indian couple (inside and out), lots of friends and family and a truly soulful celebration of marriage. The whole wedding took place over a few days in many locations. We enjoyed the serenity and quietness of the behind the scenes elements and hope it shows through the editing of the video.
making things look pretty
As Film Guys we pride ourselves on making things look pretty!
Interviews and FAQ sections on YouTube have become a growing way to create a strong Google presence. We’ve done many interviews, fireside chats, documentary shoots, vox pops and testimonials. Our focus is always to create a clean cinematic look and to get high quality audio. We crave an international look/feel and work hard to find/create interesting environments, sets, backgrounds and angles to make your interviews stand out from the standard.

The art of film making
There is nothing quite like film. Any art form has the ability to evoke strong emotions in its audience, but film has the epic power to do that through a time framed narrative. It is this, along with a combination of sensory factors that enable it to speak directly and intimately to the audience. Film offers escapism, entertainment, or serves as a time capsule for your memories. The right production company will be able to deliver whatever it is the client desires to evoke, on film. This is where we, The Film Guys, come in…
The Film Guys opened their doors in 2010 with the aspiration to create a production company that brings the true essence of the film medium to the masses. Since our establishment we have stayed true to this goal. Simply for the love of art and storytelling.
Our team will go wherever your story takes us and because of this we are available for filming on location throughout South Africa and abroad. Our clients and their individual stories are precious to us and we will make sure to work closely with them. We work hand in hand with them to ensure that we are able to capture the true essence of their message/concept.
- The Film Guys believe that to produce great work, one needs to apply great skill with a personal touch. Our mission is to always provide our clients with a unique piece of art that is designed specifically for them.
no criminal intentions - just slick videos
If you are looking to create slick looking cinematic corporate videos, music videos or even just a simple video to document your wedding or corporate event, you have come to the right place! We capture the very essence of the story, creating a body of work we can all be proud of.
- DOP work
- Conceptual / Pre-production
- Wedding pieces
- Music videos
We handle most of our work in-house, but we also assemble production teams that work on a project-to-project basis, depending on the scale of the vision and we’ll also handle the whole production. We share space with a software developer and a digital agency, so running full campaigns and developing new vessels for stories to be told with is a piece of cake for us. Also, we can make sure people see them…
