The past few weeks have seen me very busy here in the film & entertainment industry in Cape Town. Something I’m very proud of is the recording of a few radio adverts for Algoa FM. A couple were for companies situated in Port Elizabeth, including Greenacres Hospital and my family’s business Doubell Machines & Equipment. I also recorded some voice over work for in-store promotions at Shoprite & Checkers. And then one especially exciting one for my business, Skybok! Here is a snap of me in studio:
I finished up work for the new SKYYVODKA ‘Mix-a-cocktail’ iPad application. I recorded the voice-over for the app’s tutorial yesterday and I shot the tutorial itself (my hands guiding you through the app).
I also MC’d the SKYYVODKA Pool Party held at The Cape Milner Hotel:
On the acting side of things, I filmed a commercial for Thorpe Park Theme Park in The U.K.
On the PR side of things, I was asked to cover an event for the couture label FCM, who held a Fashion Party at Club 169 in Longstreet here in Cape Town. They are a great local label. On the modelling side, I’m off to London tomorrow for Top Model (here are articles where I have written about it in the past if you want to know more):
I thank The Herald’s Weekend Post for the lovely write-up I received this past weekend about it:
When I get back to South Africa on March 20th, I’m looking forward to seeing my uncle David Aldo, who is flying in from Los Angeles to do a tour of South Africa. FYI he’s is a singer in Los Angeles who started out singing at the Polo Lounge in Beverley Hills. He has been blessed to have performed at such events as Demi Moore & Ashton Kutcher’s wedding, Rod Stewart’s birthday and other private events for stars Jennifer Lopez, Demi Moore, Michael Douglas, Robbie Williams and Janet Jackson amongst others. He was last in South Africa when he opened for Lionel Ritchie on his tour. His producer is the well-known Benjy Mudie, who was recently a guest judge on Idols SA – Click HERE to watch Benjy’s interview.
On the events side of things, I attended some cool events last month, including the Red Carpet Fashion Show at the The Bay Hotel in Camps Bay here in Cape Town and also the Xtraordinary Women’s Success in High Heels event at The Cape Royale Luxury Hotel & Spa. Here is a photo of me with my awesome goodie bag!
