Bush TV, an experiential eventing and Film and TV production company, whose philosophy is “sparking the imagination of the African child” will be embarking in production in the new-media space; streaming over the internet. We will be starting a daily internet streaming breakfast show over the internet.
As from the 1st of August 2013 Bush TV will be streaming over the internet, initially starting with a 3-hour breakfast show that will stream daily from 6-9 in the morning. The content will focus on selling South Africa internationally as a tourist destination by showing it’s diversity, be a space where youth can find out about empowerment initiatives, a space where artists can reach a wider audience, a partner to creative industries’ events, pioneer in the ICT sphere amongst other things.
The initiative is spear-headed by Khululekile Banzi and Smartie Olifant who both have a history in community TV as well as in Film and TV production. They have put together a team of interested people that range from production, ICT, marketing, legal and administrative team. They are still amassing talent; including sign-language presenters, behind and in front of the screen. They also need to build partnerships, synergies, advertising, sponsorship, and content in the form of events, films, etc.
