THE DeMbare TV Soccer Magazine DVD, which the Glamour Boys feel is their first step towards launching a television show for the country’s biggest football club, goes on sale at the giant stadium tomorrow.
DeMbare will host Triangle in a Castle Lager Premiership showdown.
Kenny Mubaiwa, the Dynamos president, has endorsed DeMbare TV and said they had made sure the DVD would not be pirated.
“The original copy also comes with a beautiful case which pirates would find difficult to imitate,” he said
“Dynamos are also working with the police to make sure that those caught pirating it are prosecuted.
“My message to all the Dynamos fans and football followers in Zimbabwe and beyond is to buy the DeMbare TV DVD and enjoy yourselves.”
Pascal Kwaramba, the DeMbare TV executive producer, said they would be producing a DVD show every two weeks until they flight their show on television.
He urged the corporate sector to support them and place adverts on their DVD show.
Efforts are also underway to have DeMbare TV on Supersport and ZBC-TV.
“We have the numbers, if you place your adverts within the programme you will reach your target market and boost your business because Dynamos is a brand,” said Kwaramba.
“We are also pursuing other avenues to have our TV Channel when digital migration is finally unveiled.
“The first DeMbare TV DVD was produced using an HD filming cameras and edited by a team of professional Media Expressions editors and directed by Manuel Matsinye, who is director of Legacies, one of the most interesting Zimbabwean TV Soap which won several awards and screened on MNET.”
The programme is segmented in a different style.
Mubaiwa gives a foreword in the first segment titled, “All Access,” in the first show.
He explains when Dynamos was formed, introduces the Dynamos Board of Directors and the executive which he leads.
He goes on to introduce Dynamos technical team before mentioning their sponsors.
The next segment is “All Access”, which gives the fans a closer look at how the Dynamos fitness trainer conditions the players to withstand the long and strenuous PSL season.
The show highlights the diet Dynamos follow on match days as well the sequence of scheduled programmes when they are in camp.
“The fans will be interested to see the Dynamos players dancing to Zimdancehall, their favourite genre of music,” show presenter Gilbert Munetsi said.
“The fans will also see the rooms the players sleep in when in camp as well as the team talk. They will see and hear the coaches’ tactical strategy ahead of matches.
“The idea is to make the Dynamos player comfortable in their home environment and speak from their soul and this would make them pour their heart out about everything which happens in their lives outside football so that the viewer sees the other side of the players.”
The segment on “Player Profile” gives insight into the Dynamos squad.
“We have the ‘Who is who in Dynamos’ and the viewers will love this segment as each player is introduced in a virtual studio punctuated by excellent graphics,” the producers said.
“The ‘18 Area’ segment is likely to have viewers in stitches as the players are interviewed in the comfort of their homes.
“Here they talk about everything about themselves outside football and they even gossip about each other.
“You want to know who is the most talkative player and who loves his food? Buy the DVD as this segment is a no holds barred as it reveals the hidden secrets about players.
“If you ever wondered how the Dynamos players relax, this segment will reveal this. The first DVD features an interview with Stephen Alimenda.”
Then, there is the ‘Hall Of Fame’ segment.
On this segment the fans will see DeMbare greats like Moses Chunga, Sunday and Misheck Chidzambwa, George Shaya, Memory Mucherahowa, Harlington Shereni and many others.
Shereni can be seen in action for Nantes in France, in the first show, and for Dynamos in the 1990s.
Gerald Mashonga, the man behind the Graphic design for DeMbare TV, said the graphics they used were eye-catching.
“The graphics are meant to create a virtual studio just like the Barclays Premier League Supersport design and I tried to blend that with the Dynamos colours and it is unbelievably eye-catching,” he said.
