In August 2017 my wife and I decided to make the move to Cape Town. Johannesburg has been good to us for close to ten years and we felt like the time was right to return “home”. Despite the terrible draught that forces us to take very short showers and re-use water in many interesting ways, being in Cape Town has been good.
Cape Town is commercials world and I have steered away form the short form to stay focussed on TV and film. This all changed when I met Lourens van Rensburg. He is founder of 7 Films as well as a slew of production companies that he has built up with young talent.
It wasn’t long before he dropped a script on the table and said I should pitch on it. Since then I have had the good fortune of being able to make a few short pieces and am certainly still finding my feet but have had a great time of it so far!
This is first ever TVC:
