About


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 and Johannesburg. Priest Johannesburg in Rosebank function as a satellite office and a thriving art gallery.

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