AfrikaBurn 2024: 29 April to 5 May

Making A Movie At AfrikaBurn

While we usually have a number of film crews on site in Tankwa Town making documentaries and following participants’ stories, this year, Robert dos Santos and his crew have created an art project and are going to attempt to film a fictional story that was inspired by Rob’s time spent in Tankwa Town last year. We’ve been super impressed by their hard work and dedication to getting this project going. It’s not going to be easy, but if you’ve ever wanted to make a movie, “This Is How The World Ends” is your chance!

In Rob’s own words:

“As the dust stirs and the spirit of AfrikaBurn begins to whisper in the winds of the Karoo, an unprecedented adventure beckons. This year, amidst the canvas of creativity and self-expression that defines our gathering, myself and a merry band of creatives are introducing a cinematic project unlike any other — a full length fictional film that seeks to capture the essence of our collective experiences, dreams, and realities, set at AfrikaBurn. And you, the heartbeat of this grand landscape,  are invited to play a pivotal role in this extraordinary venture.

Everyone is invited and we are looking for collaborators of all kinds. Actors, extras, crew members, makeup artists, high five specialists, you name it. In addition, and to ensure we not only have consent but also a plan in place we are looking for campsites who will allow us to film scenes at their locations, theme camps that will allow us to dance to their music, mutant vehicles who will allow us to film them, a campsite for our actors to sleep at, and anyone who is willing to lend a hand in helping us pull this extraordinary feat off!

Join Our Cinematic Expedition: The Creation

With cameras set to roll on April 15, 2024, we stand at the threshold of something truly magical. The making of a movie is a monumental feat, one that thrives on the diversity of its creators. From roles on screen to the myriad of tasks backstage, your spirit and skills are the keys to unlocking this dream. We’re filming in Cape Town from 15 – 26 April and then AfrikaBurn from April 28 to May 5. Every gesture of support, every shared story, adds to the tapestry we’re weaving together.
