Die Windpomp is a beautiful, humorous and quirky love story that revolves around 17-year-old Henri, who comes to stay at an oddly familiar retirement village, where everything is not as it seems.

Armand Greyling, Leandie Du Randt, Marga van Rooy, Ian Roberts, Grethe Fox, Marko van der Colff, Sean-Marco Vorster, and Maridi Jooste co-star.

Refinery set up a satellite post facility at Cotton Mill Studios in Epping, Cape Town to manage all post production on SAF3, a heroic new TV series from Baywatch creator Gregory J Bonann, starring Dolph Lundgren, JR Martinez and Texas Battle. Refinery also delivered the show to 23 countries around the world; this was the first time an American show had been completed and delivered from South Africa.

Refinery handled the dailies, editorial, VFX and sound editing at Cotton Mill Studios, with Michael Botha and Charlotte Buys handling the sound at Area 5.1 and Refinery.

Bonann’s Tower 18 Productions is producing with Randall Emmett and George Furla’s Emmett/Furla Productions. Michael Murphey, from South African production company Kalahari Pictures, says SAF3 is the first international TV series of this scale to have kept all its post-production in South Africa.
