The SAFTA’s are South Africa’s Emmy’s and this year it was full of surprises…

The surprise came in the form of 24 nominations in total for 3 of the shows I directed in 2014. I am so proud of the creative teams as well as the actors who worked with me to make these shows what they are.

A big thanks to the producers of Geraamtes in die Kas and Swartwater for making me part of the directing teams.

Congratulations to my producers of Donkerland for our 12 nominations, the most nominations for one show at this years awards!
