SELBYS SOUTH AFRICA GIVES IN THE SEASON OF GIVING

2014 was without a doubt a tough year for most, with business and domestic budgets being closely watched throughout the year. With the effect of tough economic times following through onto those less fortunate even more so, Selby’s SA took some time to contribute to the Starfish Greathearts Foundation during the latter part of 2014.

In August 2014, Selby’s South Africa pledged a significant portion of their sales to the Starfish Greathearts Foundation – an organization dedicated to the fight against HIV/AIDS and its effect on the lives of children with the disease. This culminated in the three Selby’s SA branches (Midrand, Durban and Cape Town) donating almost R50 000 to this very special charity – a figure arising from a percentage of Selby’s sales over the 31 days of August.

starfish handover

The August contribution was donated during Aids Month (December 2014), helping the foundation provide for their young beneficiaries over the festive season – a time special for children everywhere. The Selby’s South Africa team was especially happy to handover a check of R49 131.08, given here to Lorin Edgar (Starfish Greathearts Foundation) by Selby’s Midrand’s Roger Mcfall who originally initiated the relationship with this charitable organization.

The Selby’s Head Office has also been heavily involved in initiatives for the furry kind, helping out at the Kloof & Highway SPCA in 2014 as well as the Durban Drum Day which creates awareness and raises funds for the Monkey Hotline in January 2015.

67 BLANKETS FOR NELSON MANDELA DAY

Father’s Day took on a more special meaning than the norm this year, when Selby’s supported the 67 Blankets for Madiba Day initiative in a special event held at the Nelson Mandela Capture site close to Howick, KZN.

This special event which brought together “knit-wits” across KZN, saw special guest performers supporting the cause through entertaining acts from acclaimed South African troubadour Nibs van der Spuy, versatile musician Kaolin Thomson, leading concert pianists Christopher Duigan & Idols finalist Erin Fourie. Guests also visited the Nelson Mandela Museum at the Capture Site, giving all an opportunity to learn more about the importance of the area and its heritage.

The event was organized by 67 Blankets KZN Midlands ambassador and actress, Annie Robinson. The 67 Blankets initiative was started as a challenge and very soon grew into an international movement, with local collections numbering more than 650 blankets before the event. Official tally on collections will be done for the handover to those in need on 18 July 2014 (Nelson Mandela Day).

Selby’s SA was proud to be a part of this cause, providing sound equipment for performances out in the KZN Midlands. For more info visit www.67blankets.co.za


 

PLASCON EXPERIENCES VERAMAX PROJECTION MAPPING AT ITS BEST.

May & June 2014 saw the Selby’s SA team joining forces around the country once again, with our Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg teams getting together in support of the Kansai Plascon Road Show which hosted dealers and distributers at an amazing event.

IMG 1932

The road show took our team to the four major centers with Selby’s transporting a curved set around the country for the projection of our designed animation at the event. Veramax HD Projection Mapping displayed a colourful history of Plascon to guests at the event with creative design and projection onto two large curved surfaces – allowing for the presence of two 8m high paint cans during each presentation.

IMG 1892   IMG 1931   IMG 1941

Challenges during the road show included the facilitating of back two back events in Cape Town and Port Elizabeth which the Selby’s team successfully over came with the careful planning of resources around the country  - getting the all important set to the two events that were a day apart.

Creativity and careful planning of logistics lead to a successful run of events around the country. Selby’s SA thanks the organizers for the opportunity to take the Veramax Projection Mapping into this fantastic nationwide event.

PROJECTION MAPPING ONTO BUILDING WITH VERAMAX

Using 2 x HD12k Christie projectors, with xenon lamps, on the main building and 2 x 16k Christie projectors on the second building Selbys used projection mapping to deliver an unbelievable event.

The scaffold tower was 12m high and we projected 130 meters onto the building that is 25m wide by 20m high.

To run the show Selbys used a Triple head graphics adapter. Using two outputs of the Triple head adaptor with each output going through a DVI splitter and then via fibre optic cables to each of the 4 projectors.

A video clip of this unbelievable event is on our facebook page and youtube.
