Who we are
Off the Ground Media (OTGM) was established as a sister company to the long running not-for-profit company, Community Media Trust (CMT). Together these two companies are creating a unique model for long term sustainability. The aim: to supply affordable marketing and media production to small business in the commercial sector and simultaneously create social justice content and provide media training through the not-for-profit sector.
OTGM is not just another media production company or marketing agency, because the business brought to us is generating income for CMT which is working to promote health information, transparency and democracy as well as train young people to create thought provoking, accurate and fair media and reporting.
Over the past few years traditional funding sources have become more scarce and far less funding has been made available to the NGO sector in South Africa. In order to be more sustainable and aid the important work that CMT does, OTGM will be producing media for the commercial sector.
The OTGM team has vast experience writing, directing and producing television, radio, print and web material. The same team which created media within CMT for 16 years and has delivered drama series such as Amaza, and JAB on SABC1, now brings its expertise to OTGM.
So when considering how to produce your marketing material, or when you need to develop a campaign or promote your brand, remember that Off the Ground Media is not only able to produce quality media material, but is also assisting a not-for-profit to train and provide skills to young South Africans.
