TK Productions

TK Productions has teamed up with Quirky House to provide a full DVD production service to the corporate market. The service  will include sales promotion, marketing, public relations, Conferences, end of year functions, live events coverage, seminars and workshops as well as recruitment, staff induction and sales training.

“We will provide our clients with all the elements needed to complete their corporate video, from initial concept (which includes scripting and pre-production), through to the shoot itself and then post-production, including editors, edit suite, sound mix and delivery” said Tamarin Kaplan of TK Productions.

“That does not mean we exclusively do everything, if you have an existing script or idea, we are happy to step in when you need us. With Quirky House’s extensive portfolio of MCs and entertainers, we will also offer actors, voice over artists and South African celebrities as part of the package.”

Quirky House has a policy of dealing directly with actors and celebrities and will not place bookings via other agencies (thus avoiding mark-ups). It is with this philosophy in mind that Quirky House now offers an in-house corporate video production facility with the best young talent in the business.

Tamarin Kaplan is best known in the industry for her very successful TV show, entitled Behind the Name and more recently her documentary feature, Breaking the Line, was on the official selection of the International Encounters Documentary Film Festival.

This young South African filmmaker studied Film and Media at the University of Cape Town, where she was on the Dean Merit List for 2 years. While at UCT, she was invited to join the International Golden Key Society which honors academic excellence, placing her in the top 15% of students.

After graduating with a 3 year BA degree in Film and Media in 2005, Tamarin directed and produced a documentary short titled Education Without Borders for a Canadian NGO of the same name. The film is about the adversity facing school children living in the Cape Town township of Gugulethu, and how, against all odds, they overcome these hardships to obtain an education. The film was used as a fundraising tool and helped the NGO purchase computers and other facilities for Fezeka school. The film also was selected as the Opening Night film for the documentary festival held at Victoria University in Vancouver, Canada in 2005. Education Without Borders is currently used as a teaching tool for the Education Program at Victoria University. 

Tamarin recently headed up the South African leg of an international American feature documentary entitled The White Picket Fence Project, under LA Producer Lynette Howell. The documentary follows the trials and tribulations of disadvantaged young men in different 3rd world countries over a period of two years. Tamarin has followed a young man from Gugulethu, who went from a drug-using teenager to a dedicated student who became the top student at his school in Gugulethu.

She was the producer and co-director of the popular e-TV series  Behind the Name, which focused on some of South Africa’s most prominent entertainers and personalities. The show aimed to promote the talent and the aspirational stories of our local celebrities.

Her documentary Breaking the Line is about an historical event, which took place at the Dan Qeqe Stadium in New Brighton township on the 10th October 1976, when white and black players thumbed their noses at the Apartheid regime and played a non-racial rugby game. Unlike multi-racial sport, where white teams could play against black teams, non-racial rugby integrated black and white players into mixed teams.  This went against the fundamental ideology (and legislation) of the Apartheid regime. The film follows the days leading up to the game and the consequences thereafter. It also explores the potential of rugby’s transition from purely a “white” sport to a freely democratic one.

Tamarin has since directed a music video for Jody Williams (2007 Idols winner) and has been commissioned by the Oscar Mpetha foundation to produce a feature documentary about the life of the ‘father of trade unionism’, Mr. Oscar Mpetha.

A professionally made corporate video can provide a platform for companies to communicate a message, demonstrate a product in action or express techniques and ideas to staff in an interesting and dynamic way. Corporate videos can do all of this for a fraction of the cost, as the film becomes a contained medium through which a company's message or product becomes accessible to a wider audience in a shorter period of time. more info »
