Through the lenses of Sim Doc

One fateful November day in 1995 Simbarashe Makare was born in Masvingo.He would grow up in Chipinge with a passion for drawing which he later turned into a profitable enterprise operating under the name Sim Doc Films.Currently studying Insurance and Risk Management at NUST Sim Doc has managed to balance books and the camera to become one of the most sought after videographers in the country.

Having taught himself to operate the camera Sim Doc  started shooting commercially in 2016 and his clientele has increased across all genres as the years flew by.Even though he is best known for his videos Sim Doc also covers events and shoots commercials and documentaries.During his formative years he recalls how shortages of equipment,poor budgets from clients and downright sabotage threatened to derail his work but he remained steadfast.He has worked with artists like Te3vo,Freeman,Terry Africa,Mula Nation,Trae Yung,Kikky Badass,Andy Muridzo,Lady B,Team Bhoo Boss,Tricky J and Crooger to name but a few.His scope is not merely national though as he hopes to one day put in work with the Drakes,Takuras,Jah Prayzahs and Wizkidz of this world.Videographers he looks up to include Kyle White,Mike Ho,Clarence Peters,Matt Allonzo,Dave Meyers,Uncle Scrooch and Kyle Lewis.

When quizzed about his plans for the future the ever optimstic Sim Doc mentioned how he wants to put Zimbabwe on the global map through visuals by bringing in new techniques,innovative ideas and an open mindset which he believes is missing in a generation where similarity is the norm.As for the current state of the music industry the videographer notes that its struggling but going somewhere and suggests that we invest in sick visuals plus better marketing if we are to get our piece of the global entertainment pie.
