OUR STORY

THE STORY OF SHOOT MY HOUSE

We are so proud of our team at Shoot My House. Each member of the team displays the qualities that we consider our core values. Passion, Integrity, Humor and Style.

JEANNE

An actress by profession – I have worked in many areas of film making. Assisting a casting agent led on to cast coordinating on Johannesburg TV Shoots between acting gigs and when I went to the UK landed me working for a major production company in Carnaby Street, London for several years. Back in SA I got stuck into Film and TVC production in Cape Town but the lure of locations was always there for me and starting Shoot my House a great way to act again and have my own business where I get to bring everything I have learned together . I love seeing how people live – and the spaces they inhabit – how they inform it and how it informs them. I love the relationships that are forged with location owner and our clients alike. What we do is all about relationships – as is everything!

I’m obsessed with Nature, Architecture, product design, interior design, storytelling, my daughter, movie making, beauty and magic.
On any given weekend you will find me in the sea, on my kayak or walking on one of the many magnificent mountains we are so blessed to live amongst.

We are sisters and there is nothing more wonderful and comforting than having a “sista” who is a sister on your team. Her passion, drive, creativity and attention to detail are quite simply breathtaking. this is what she has to say….

I come from a 25 plus year background as illustrator, fine artist and facilitator of art for kids and adults..

Her attention to detail and her extraordinary ability to remain calm, Good humoured and friendly in even the most pressured of situations make her an indispensable part of the Shoot My House Family. Her self written bio confirms all these qualities and so many more…..


My world revolves around love, laughter, and cherishing the simple pleasures of life and an unwavering devotion to my family and friends. The saying goes, home is where the heart is, this is why property is my passion. When I am not busy taking over the world, you’ll find me strolling along the sandy shores, channeling my inner philosopher as I ponder life’s most profound questions, like, “Why do seagulls always act like they haven’t had a decent meal in years?”

Both professional and personal

We have had the pleasure of working with SMH for many years, whilst renting our houses for film shoots. ( 10 or 15 years but my memory is like my hair – receding)
Their service has been both professional and personal, which in this day and age is unusual in my opinion.
I would not hesitate in recommending their services if you are planning on renting to a film crew – SMH have always done what is needed, and more.

First port of call!

Shoot my House is my first port of call when looking for most locations within Cape Town and Western Cape. They have a incredibly well curated database of film friendly locations, anything from MTV Crib style houses to dilapidated industrial buildings and a train station to boot! Red and her team understand production and negotiate extremely fair fees on your behalf with an incredibly meticulous management style.

Our property is always looked after

We enjoy having our property managed for shoots by SMH, as we know they look after it well, protect us while still being fair to the production company , and they keep us well informed during the different stages of getting a shoot- from scout recce’s to the wrap days!

 

Shady Oaks Location

An easy choice

Allowing one’s personal space to be invaded by a film crew is not necessarily an easy operation!

My house has been a location on SMH books for 3 years.  I have found SMH to be utterly professional in their dealings with me.  They have been pleasant, helpful and resolved any issues (all be they minor ones) with speed and to a high level of satisfaction.  They are efficient and keep me informed at all times.  In a nutshell – SMH has been a pleasure to deal with and has made the process of making my house available as a location, a very easy one.

Thank you Jeanne and Team!
