    Never Stop: Epic Adventure for North Face from Mekanism

    1 October 2015

    North Face went for epic adventure in their first ever global ad campaign, created by Mekanism. The team came to South Africa this winter and shot at 6 locations in 4 “Amazing Race” type days. They braved Hout Bay Harbour’s choppy winter swell, skate-boarded down Steenbras Pass Road, froze at Sutherland (home to our Observatory), jumped off Kynsna’s Red Bridge and then raced up to Johannesburg and Pretoria for museum and market shots. The South African scenes were combined with shots from Alaska and Nepal to create the beautioful end product

    Thread and Sony Xperia Mashlab

    19 August 2015

    Moonlighting’s digital company “Thread” are into their 3rd month of running Sony Xperia “Mashlab” on South Africa’s most popular youth radio station 5FM.  Conceived by Thread’s Jon Savage, Mashlab is an online, interactive music “lab” which, each month, produces a new song & music video developed entirely by the fans and performed by their choice of well-known South African artists. (The last Mashlab included bands Seether and The Parlotones.) Fans vote which artist should collaborate via social media; they send song ideas, develop lyrics and design the album. Artists are filmed and footage streamed through the Sony Xperia site culminating in a live concert for all 10 tracks.  True digital integration in one project.  The music video of Mashlab #1’s “Caviar Dreams”, performed by Al Bairre and PHFAT was released by Sony Xperia last week; Mashlab #2’s “Addicted to Scars” is a collaboration of Kwesta and Black Motion; Mashlab #3 ‘s collaboration between David Kramer and Toya Delazy is in production.

    Endless River is first SA film to compete at the Venice International Film Festival

    11 August 2015

    Great article in Times Live on Endless River – produced by Genevieve Hofmeyr and Marvin Saven of Moonlighting Films and Didier Costet of Swift Productions. The team last collaborated together with Oliver Hermanus on his award winning “Skoonheid”.

    Oliver Hermanus’s new film, The Endless River,has bagged two prestigious nominations at the Venice International Film Festival.

    The Endless River, shot in the small town of Riviersonderend in the Western Cape, has been nominated for the Golden Lion award. Its lead actress, Crystal Donna Roberts, has been nominated as Best Actress. Hermanus said the invitation to a premiere and nominations for the awards made him feel “pretty good”. “My hope is for the film to be seen by the largest possible audience and to inspire new work by my peers.” Hermanus said he was not sure when the film – shot last year – would be released locally.

    For 30-year-old Roberts this is her “first big film role” despite having done theatre. “It’s obviously quite overwhelming. I’m so proud to be part of this,” she said. Roberts plays a small-town waitress alongside French actor Nicolas Duvauchelle, who plays a French expatriate. He forms an unlikely bond with the waitress after the brutal murder of his family on a farm.

    The 72nd festival, from September 2 to12, is the world’s oldest film festival.

    Hermanus, who also directed the films Skoonheid and Shirley Adams , will compete against 20 other filmmakers.
