ANANT SINGH, FILM DIRECTOR AND CHAIRMAN OF CAPE TOWN FILM STUDIOS, TALKING AT PODIUM AUDIENCE (SOUNDBITE) (English) ANANT SINGH, FILM DIRECTOR AND CHAIRMAN OF CAPE TOWN FILM STUDIOS, SAYING: "When you look at the creative and technical excellence that we have in South Africa and you see the kind of quality of films that we have made, they are world class and they can stand as good, if not better, than the best in the world but that one gap was always the film studios. And it was that passion that sort of drove forward to try and get Cape Town's film studios to become a reality." AUDIENCE (SOUNDBITE) (English) HELEN ZILLE, CAPE TOWN MAYOR, SAYING: "There's no greater thrill than watching a movie and seeing your city feature in it. Seeing a feature film unfold with a story that is new and exciting and seeing places that you walk past everyday or recognise. It's a real, real thrill, and I'm hoping that Cape Town will be more and more a location for great feature films, that we will feature more in films, that we will make more films and that we will become a really powerful international brand in the process. There's no reason why we shouldn't." AUDIENCE (SOUNDBITE) (English) NICO DEKKER, CEO, CAPE TOWN FILM STUDIOS, SAYING: "I do believe that we are entering a bright new age of film-making in South Africa and that this studio that is still busy to be born will play a significant role to breath new life and beauty into our industry." AERIAL EYE VIEW OF PROPOSED SITE WHERE FILM STUDIOS WILL BE BUILT VIEW OF TABLE MOUNTAIN VARIOUS OF WORKERS ON FILM STUDIO SITE (SOUNDBITE) (English) ANANT SINGH, FILM DIRECTOR AND CHAIRMAN OF CAPE TOWN FILM STUDIOS, SAYING: "What we are trying to do is build a world-class studio as good as any where in the world, technologically. If you are in Cape Town or New York or London, you would get a better service, better quality of product in Cape Town and as good technically as anywhere else in the world. And we have great people working for us. The creative and technical people are world-class and filmmakers, international directors, really love working here." (SOUNDBITE) (English) CHRIS ROWLAND, FILM PRODUCER, SAYING: "I'll be honest. I can tell you that I've worked all over the world as a producer, including having come from Los Angeles, my native home, that Cape Town, specifically Cape Town in South Africa, is one of the most diverse locations anywhere in the world. So add that to the new studios, you have got a winning combination."
