WE ARE Velocity Afrika
Velocity Afrika is a South African Production Company, with offices in Johannesburg and Cape Town, focused on creating content which gives Africa an identity through the creation of quality content.
The desire to make films, that are relevant to Africa and its people, formed the basis for the formation of the collective and remains the ethos that drives this collective of Producers, Directors and the sub-contractors they engage. Their philosophy is to give Africa an identity and a footprint on the world, through her stories. This undertaking is realised through the collaboration of the Velocity Afrika team who share this vision.
The collective value their uncanny ability to shoot anywhere from the deserts of Mali, to the forests of Cameroon and the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg, Marrakesh & Lagos. With their focus on training developing filmmakers, there is a strong culture and belief to nurture the future storytellers in Africa by equipping them with the tools and resources to be able to tell their own stories – speaking in their own voices.
Velocity Afrika has recently been awarded the Best African African Production Company in the 2016 AI Global Media Awards.
