The details

Scene It harnesses the collective power of short videos to promote creatives in Cape Town.

Via a series of public campaigns, it curates the best short video submissions to create themed video ‘routes’.

Kate Crane-Briggs – founder and lead tour guide of Culture Connect SA – was asked to recommend some of her favourite buildings in Cape Town’s CBD. Scene It then invited the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra to ‘hide’ five of their musicians within these buildings, so the camera could create a game of finding them while exploring each of these beautiful, historical spaces.

Filmed by David Fanyane and Tamara MacLachlan.
