Mini Cape by Timmy Henny



In Feb this year, Timmy Henny asked us to put a wanted message up on 10and5. He was calling for apartments or office spaces anywhere from the second floor upwards that would allow him to film from a high angle to create a short film that would make Cape Town look like lego land. You must’ve obliged because 5 months later here is the result!

‘Mini Cape’ is a 2 minute film that gives us a mini day in the life of Cape Town City. The film has been selected as a finalist for the San Fransisco International Festival of Short Films out of over 1600 entries.


Timmy Henny directed, shot and edited everything himself and his goal is now to do a film like this in cities all over the world.


He says, “A special thank you to everyone who helped by giving me rooftop and balcony access all over the city of Cape Town. Without you this video would have never been possible! And I’m sorry if you emailed me to help and I couldn’t make it to you. I was so overwhelmed by the amount of responses I had from all of you but unfortunately I didn’t have time to go shoot at all the amazing venues on offer.

Thank you to Ross and Myles McDonald from Hey Papa Legend Studios for producing the amazing soundtrack.”
