in his own words
As young boy from the far east rand( the very far east side of Johannesburg). I grew up fascinated by movies. Since I was 5 years old I new wanted to tell stories, whether its was on screen as an actor or behind the scenes as a director.
I feel in love with telling stories, through writing movies, the filmmaking process, obsessively reading every goosebumps book I could get my hands on.But as I grew up a big obstacle was getting to know the tech and gear and tools I need to make my dreams a reality.
I was fortunate to meet a lot of mentors that pointed me in the right direction, from blogs, to gear and resources. I continued to self teach my self these online resources but years later, I realized there is still not enough information about film gear, from software, cameras and all The technical aspects of storytelling.
So I went to film school and then landed my first job in the film and advertising world in the year 2008, I worked on various Music videos, tv pilots and Ads as a First AD. Years later i would land my first permanent job as writer/producer at an advertising agency, for four years. Then I learnt how to edit and to tell stories through, voice over, music, sound effects, graphics and video editing this would ultimately improve my storytelling capabilities drastically.
