It's been no secret that Cape Town, South Africa, is one of the most amazing places on the planet to visit.

Director Mark Kohl shot his first spot there in 2010 and immediately fell in love with the country, its beauty and its people. Over the last few years Mark has directed over 10 productions in South Africa for his clients and knew the time was right to open Kohl Pictures, SA – (in partnership with production service company – Hoodlum Films/SA). This new venture will allow Mark to bring this amazing venue to his US clients.


Cape Town and South Africa offer LA type weather, amazing crews and locations all at a fraction of the cost. It can be easily doubled for anywhere in America but it also has its own incredible unique look offering clients a new way to freshen their image.
