Founded in 2014, Gambu Ntwana is a fast growing film & TV production company based in South Africa. We strive to produce content that is visually engaging and personally empowering. We select our projects carefully because we believe that purpose takes precedence over profit. We partner with ethically inclined companies, organisations and individuals to tell stories that matter – stories that inspire audiences all over the world to actively participate in positive cultural change.
The combined experience of the in-house team covers award winning TV shows, music videos, live events, and new media content. The company consists of three departments: live-action production, post-production (editorial, visual effects) and original music and sound design. Gambu Ntwana has worked on many high profile productions, beginning with the Cape Town Electronic Music Festival in 2012. One of our D.O.Ps worked with Makhulu Productions , Redbull & SAE, they filmed Young Guru’s(Jay z’s producer) documentary in South African, with an initiative to grant funding to young sound engineers that would go on and study in USA and intern with Young Guru. Subsequent productions include the official making-of the TV show for SABC 2, Challenge SOS as Director of Photography, which went on to win two SAFTA awards, several television specials for the SABC, Mzansi Magic & The Africa Channel in America.

In 2014 we produced and filmed a documentary for Womens day, a tribute to our mothers and sisters, a public screening was then hosted for free in Durban in collaboration with Easy Eating and Open Plan Studio.
