Once upon a time there were no film editors, and film was not very interesting. Then Priest came along…

Established in 2003, Priest started as a traditional post production facility and has evolved into a creative studio that edits feature films, TV commercials and produces a variety of online branded content.

Priest is based in Cape Town.

Priest is dedicated to supporting and strengthening South African art and film.

The Studio

You can find our HQ, and where we all prefer to live… in Cape Town. Or more specifically, the new and trendy area of Salt River, neighbouring the creative hub of Woodstock.

Our edit suites are complete with Adobe Creative Cloud software and our colourist rocks a 4K projector.  An infinity curve is the star of the VFX suite for ad hoc pack and 3D support shoots.

We can guarantee your job will be completed to the highest standard. With such a beautiful space that we like to show it off, we host regular screenings and industry talks.
