BACK in FPP HISTORY
FPP roots go as far back as 1987 when Jens Schneider founded CTV – Communication Through Video in Windhoek. During independence the likes of CNN, Finnish, Norwegian and Swiss TV hired our facilities to edit their news tapes for transmission via microwave from the Telecom Tower in Windhoek to Europe and the USA.
The gallery shows our heavy camera equipment in the 80’s we lugged on to set in Namibia and as far as Zimbabwe, Hong Kong and Japan. The CTV analog sound studio was the hub of many jingles, radio ads and film voice-overs. All edited by hand, with a sharp razor. Editing video on an analog studio set-up taught us the discipline of planning and multi-tasking, a skill very useful in todays digital world. Today professional editing can be done on a single laptop, some even use their phone.
