Slim directs Star Sat launch spot

Egg Films' Slim directed 'Change Your View', Shift Joe Public's moving launch commercial for Star Sat, which was previously known as TopTV.
To demonstrate the power of a change of perspective, the spot took 60 Clarens locals on their first ride in a hot air balloon and documented their reactions.

"What you see, we did for real," says Slim. "We took people who otherwise wouldn't get the opportunity to experience being in a hot air balloon and just let them enjoy themselves."

Slim took a documentary approach, relying on the cast's genuine reactions. The result is an emotional journey that the viewer experiences along with characters, heightened by the beautiful track from Christoffer of Red Moth Music.

The spot was conceptualised by Shift Joe Public's creative team of Xolisa Dysehana, Machiek Michalski, Jeanine Vermaak, Christo Kruger and Freda Raubenheimer, shot by DOP Werner Maritz, and edited by Left's Saki Bergh.
