Security guards, pizza delivery men, motorists, a bride, restaurant owners, taxi passengers, businessmen and Kurt Darren 'bites the dust'' in the new candid camera movie Rainbow Skellums, to be released in December by Ster-Kinekor Distribution. Well known movie producer Andre Scholtz and his experienced team travelled throughout South Africa to catch a few "victims".

TV-cameras were cleverely installed in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Heidelberg, Ventersdorp, Strand, Cape Town, Eersterivier and Gordon's Bay while the three "skellums", Kevin Ehrenreich, Alexa Strachan and Louw Venter caught out their victims. The "victims" (people on the street), are the actual actors in this hilarious candid camera movie. Corruption, safety, bribery, unleaded petrol, the bad economy, the changing of city names and stolen vehicles - these current problems all come to light in Rainbow Skellums.

The three Skellums constantly had to be on their toes to catch their unsuspecting victims off guard and besides that, also had to try not to annoy the victims too much.Once the victims realised it was only a joke, they were so relieved that they could only laugh!

To guide the 'victims' down the path each visual gag must take, the filmmakers have employed the services of local actors Louw Venter, Alexa Stachan and Kevin Ehrenriech whose hilarious adlib performances lend much to the overall comedic effect.
