Episode 2 : Ama Supporter : Boeta Sulayman

Peace and Blessings be with you.

I realised whilst editing the second episode for Ama Supporter that these videos, more than promoting the people in them, and helping me sharpen my skills, will one day make a contribution to the documentation of the people and places of Cape Town. It was only because I started chatting to him that he told me about his work as a fashion model in the 70’s in Apartheid Cape Town as a coloured man. It was fortunate for me that I had the canon ixus handy.

Boeta Sulayman, was recommended to me by a friend and since then he has altered 3 trousers  impeccably. Thank you Mr. Adams for the recommend!

Boeta Sulayman is a friendly enough man who I am sure would appreciate a visit, and yes, if you have, your business.

Salaam,

Ama Supporter youtube series starts today.

Peace and Blessings be with you.

The first in a series of online commercials titled “Ama Supporter” has just been uploaded.

“Ama Supporter” aims to provide a free online platform for small local businesses to advertise to new markets in the web space. It serves at the same time as a way for me to practice my craft, and tell stories that have the potential to benefit those whom the stories are about. The episodes will be short, having all been shot on a canon ixus 7 mega pixel camera I received as a gift from uncle John. ( big thank you!).

‘mierkat’ is the name I chose for the formation that is the creative multi-media capacity I represent.

Salaam.

Peace and Blessings be with you.

I am back from Morocco now for 1 week and 2 days. Before I left Cape Town I launched an online publication called bridge. It is the beginning of many more collaborations I hope to participate in, in the future.
