We had a great weekend shooting the video for Driemanskap’s romantic summer anthem, Ivamna (Love Potion). For this shoot we were joined by Cape Town-based filmmaker, Ari Kruger, who runs Sketchbook Studios. Ari shot and co-directed the video with spo0ky – a great combination. We were also joined by a gang of beautiful and talented ladies who performed the roles of Driemanskap’s romantic partners.
Ivamna has been getting major airplay recently and, judging by the fans’ comments on Facebook and Twitter, it was the most popular choice for Driemanskap’s fourth video from their debut album, Igqabhukil’ Inyongo.
For day one of the two day shoot we were on location in Gugulethu. For the second day we moved to town and shot at The Company’s Garden and the beautiful waterfall at Deer Park. Two perfect locations for romance.
As always, shout out to Driemanskap Family, Butan Wear and Deep Settle Movement. Massive thanks also goes out to our stylist, Nande Njanya, who made the ladies look even more beautiful.
