Hello My name is Zaheer Cassim. I run a multimedia production house called One Way Up Productions, based in Johannesburg, South Africa, After graduating from Columbia's Graduate School of Journalism with a Master's in Digital Media, I worked for several international news organisations before settling back home in South Africa. Over the years, the company has evolved into a team of cinematographers, editors and visual effects artist and our work is predominantly corporate, however we have created documentaries for local non-profits and have freelanced several multimedia news stories published on the New York Times websites and SBS Dateline Australia. We have done work for corporate videos for international brands such as Apple, Liverpool, KPMG, Ernst and Young, to name a few and understand the demands of delivering high quality work in a short duration of time. My team are ready to go. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

    Zaheer was great at communicating throughout the whole project. The end result is well shot with high-quality equipment. He went out of his way to keep the team updated during the shoot when there was a rain delay. Zaheer also got in touch with the subjects of the video and coordinated things with them well, which was a huge help.

    Zaheer produced an excellent video for us. He found the perfect people to interview, including a newsmaker. He also stayed on top of the topic and stayed in touch. There was relevant breaking news after he sent us the completed version, and he updated the story without being asked.
