Storyboard Productions creates content for digital and traditional broadcast platforms. Diversity and inclusivity are integral ingredients to the company’s storytelling. Their aim is to amplify voices that have historically been marginalized in mainstream media, and place women at the helm both on and off the screen.
A highlight in the company’s journey has been producing Wayde van Niekerk’s documentary in 2018, as well as rebranding Ubank South Africa through TV and radio commercials.
The company prides itself on hiring predominantly woman-led production teams – their sets are invariably full of colour and chutzpah! The goal is to create spaces where woman are creators and custodians of the story they are telling.
Beyond the financial backing, the MultiChoice Innovation Fund has provided much-needed cushioning from the harsh reality of running a business in South Africa. Their mentor is a woman who is a business owner, meaning that the knowledge she imparts stems from having walked that path before.
