Eish!!! What I muttered all the time, not that I'm an eventing guru I just didn't like some of the details of the South African Film & Television Awards live show on SABC 3 honouring film and TV veterans for their hardwork so it seemed everytime they played those advert- like clips. However events like this kind are very much as important as SAMAS,Metros after all the entertainment industry doesn't have those specs as the corporate South Africa, this will indeed help nourish this struggling small actors workplace filled with uncertainty. Here are some of the details they need to master next time according to me;
MC's: Most vital ingredients of any show, they must make sure of whom they choose, Connie maybe good with someone else not that guy. If he was paired with Tumi Morake it would have worked. Also scripts be taken seriously, its a live show afterall. I felt Connie's lines were not that clean.
Sitting Arrangements: Nominees must always sit near to the stage or you find something interesting to play/do while they walk that long walk to accept their awards.
Sound: It was not that breath taking but not bad either. In future it will be great if you open the show with a theatrical piece, it can set an awesome mood for the event's status quo.
With that off my chest, your music for long speeches was so cool, original indeed. Samuel L was paid how much? Zama Nkosi may you please just let us know. On serious note though big up to her organization for all the hard work they put in to produce such a wonderful platform which will help encouraging more and more local productions.
