Veldkinders – Joubert Tweeling Dokumentêr

In Augustus het ons afgeskop met ons televisie dokumentêr reeks wat gaan oor die Joubert familie en hulle plaas Tweeling naby Bothaville in die Vrystaat. Hierdie projek is ‘n nuwe een vir ons omdat dit oor so ‘n lang tydperk strek, maar wat al die afgelope twee maande gebeur het maak ons baie opgewonde.

Dit Was Goed.

Laas week het ons ‘n draai gemaak in die Kaap om ‘n pilot te skiet vir ‘n Die Wasgoedlyn.  Riku en Jackie Lätti het ons orals geneem om ‘n hele spul talentvolle musiekante af te neem. Dit was baie eintlik baie werk, maar ons onthou net hoe lekker die musiek en die omgewing was.

Sweet September Launch

At the end of August Rick from Duck Rabbit Studios asked us to film the Holiday Inn Express’ Sweet September Launch. It featured some fantastic South African musicians like Jacques Terre’Blanche, Shannon Hope, Daniel Baron, & The Graeme Watkins Project.

Strong Story

These past two days felt super long, but also whizzed by exceptionally fast. The whole David Freeman workshop was chucked full of great techniques to really deepen you characters and scenes and instill audiences with empathetical connections to the characters.

Rule #1: Never stop creating

hatever you do, whatever you make, the rule is universal: never stop creating.  You will make lots and lots of crap, then you will make lots and lots of art, but you need to make that crap in order to get to the truly amazing creation.  It’s not rocket science, everything you make shouldn’t have […]
