We took the Sea Point Pavilion background plate to Comic Con Cape Town 2023, and invited cosplayers to stand in front of a green screen, capturing themselves – in character – as tourists in Cape Town. It was very much a low budget experiment, but a lot of fun for all concerned.

Many thanks to Caya Creative.

Where to make a Scene at Sea Point Pavilion

This corner of Sea Point makes a fantastic backdrop for content creation. Art deco architecture, pools, pounding waves, sea gulls, achingly open skies, sunset, crazily-angled trees, buskers, salsa, sunsets, high rise buildings, people from all walks of life… it can all be found here.
