In July this year, our institute got a crack at stardom when we became home base for the movie crew and actors shooting the film “A Shot at the Big Time”
The film is from the screenplay by Janet van Eeden and is based on her late brother’s experiences in the Caprivi Strip during the war of the 1980s. The thornveld environment in which the KZNPI is located provided the perfect setting for shooting (the film, not the wildlife !). The team needed a home base from which to operate and we were happy to oblige ! It provided a great opportunity to see first-hand an industry very different from our own and we are looking forward to seeing the finished product.
Acting does have its dull moments …
