Durban, South Africa – 28 September –
FigJam Entertainment is proud to announce the start of production on feature film, The Honeymoon; a comedy adventure starring our favourites and most recognised artists in the African entertainment industry; Kajal Bagwandeen-Singh, Tumi Morake and Minnie Dlamini, and directed by the talented and creative Bianca Isaac.
There's something very special about the relationship between best friends! You can count on their brutal honesty and undying loyalty and even when there's been distance between them, the coming together is sure to be one of pure exhilaration. The Honeymoon unwraps the story of three friends in a dilemma. When one of them is dumped the night before her wedding; three best friends turn a would-be-honeymoon into a wild time in paradise – but will their friendship last?
With filming just begun in the beautiful city of Durban and the sun kissed shores of Zanzibar; the team are in high spirits looking forward to sun, surf, bikinis and all that goes with creating another high quality FigJam Entertainment production we have come to expect.
“It has been an interesting challenge due to covid, with the lack of physical interaction during soft-prep with H.O.Ds. Filmmaking is a physical, organic process that requires the director to see, touch and hear her environment. It’s a collaborative process. But when the lockdown eased; there was opportunity to interact” says director Bianca Isaac who also wrote the film and is supported by producer Gregory Mthanji. “My producer has offered a lot of support from development till now and that has allowed my creative ability to be explored. The production team has shown the power of teamwork, and I love that the most amazing female squad came together to make this chick flick a reality."
Her production company, FigJam Entertainment, brought us The Jakes are Missing and 3 Days to Go to the big screen and she looks forward to returning to the director's seat once again.
The Honeymoon boasts a superb leading cast and welcomes newcomer Minnie Dlamini who makes her feature film debut. Minnie is prominent in the Awards scene of some of the most celebrated events on the African calendar. She has even conquered the small screen as an actress in the South Africas most distinguished shows - Generations, The Wild and Rockville. Kajal Bagwandeen-Singh whom has a deep love for film has big screen acting credits to her name Jozi, For Better for Worse and 3 Days To Go. Tumi Morake - Seriously Single, Skin, 3 Days To Go and a 12-time SAFTA nominee joins this great ensemble. This multi-talented actress and comedian rounds off our best friend trio to perfection.
The Honeymoon is distributed by Filmfinity (Pty) Ltd; and produced by FigJam Entertainment in collaboration with Worthy Films and Imagine Worx; with the release scheduled for 2022.
