Cape Town’s film industry thrives
With affordable production rates, breathtaking views and countless talented actors, it is no wonder that Cape Town’s film industry is thriving. Every day there are film sets across the city that are creating content for both local and international markets, pushing money into the economy.
In the heart of the industry is Stor-Age Gardens, strategically used by many different film production companies in South Africa. Located in Cape Town’s CBD and accessible 24-hours a day, Stor-Age Gardens offers a convenient storage solution for an industry that requires flexibility and accessibility.
Comments Kevin Jacobs, Facility Manager at Stor-Age Gardens, “The facility has become a ‘home base’ to an ever-growing number of clients in the film industry, playing a vital role by offering affordable and flexible storage space to a clientele that require this flexibility. The facility never experiences a lull in activity or movement on site. Film crews are busy enjoying a coffee and packing rigging and props before setting out on respective shoots throughout Cape Town from as early as 2am.”
So how does self storage play such a vital role in the film industry
Advantages of self storage for the film industry
The film industry involves numerous costumes, props and equipment. As each job has different requirements, the space needed to store these items changes regularly. One way that self storage assists the process is by providing cost-effective and flexible storage agreements. Gone are the days when expensive warehousing rental overheads are the only option. At Stor-Age Gardens, businesses are offered cost-effective storage solutions by being able to upsize or downsize their unit depending on their needs.
Using a self storage unit keeps everything organised in a single, convenient location. With electronically-controlled access, items are kept safe while allowing the entire crew access. Additional security features include CCTV surveillance and selected individually alarmed units.
Knowing that your equipment is safe is one thing, but being able to load and unload easily is another priority in the film industry. Stor-Age Gardens offer complimentary trolleys, loading bays and elevators to assist with the efficient loading process meaning that you can spend more time on set, and less time getting there.
Our experience in assisting film crews with their business has given us an in-depth understanding of the industry’s needs. We know that security is of utmost importance, accessibility at all hours is a must, and flexibility is vital!
