DO Productions facilitated a Danish movie called "My Sister's Kids" during July and August 2012 in the Magaliesberg area outside Johannesburg. The story is about 6 children who go on an African Safari with their uncle and aunt and get entangled in a poaching opertion. During a car chase through the bush they find themselves, among other places, in their car teetering on the edge of a cliff. They manage to escape minutes before the car falls 70metres and explodes in the ravine below. Stunts and Special FX provided the stunts and effects.
