The Observer's Interview with Charl Blignaut

Behind productions such as Tshisa,, and the recently launched Moferefere Lenyalong is Moja Movie Factory and The Observer presents an interview with Charl Blignaut from this production house.
The interview touches on the company, its productions, television, Egoli and television ratings. Also we find out that Tshisa may be a long running series due to its success and will premier a brand new season in the New Year.

I found Charl to be very interesting, one of those people you would like to see in action and also pick his brain on matters relating to the development of entertainment in South Africa. It sounds like his production company has identified a simple yet effective approach to their objective in television and so far it looks to be working out very well. After all they are producing the countries hit dramatic series based on ratings. Often production company executives are very stuck up and will never share any information about anything but Charl is different, as you read the interview you will soon discover that.

Thank you to Charl Blignaut at Moja Movie Factory for this interview and supplying me with pictures.

Tshisa airs Tuesdays at 20h30 on SABC1
Moferefere Lenyalong airs Sundays at 19h00 on SABC2
