Rob Malpage has made official his move into directing by joining Frieze Films.
A long-standing relationship between Frieze and Rob from his time as junior director of photography (DP) to one of South Africa's most respected cinematographers has resulted in the perfect environment to back his career. Rob's move from DP to director offers an exciting opportunity for agencies, says Executive Producer Jo Barber, and is perhaps the biggest move of its kind in years.
From his early breakthrough start on Yizo Yizo, Malpage steadily built his craft as DP. Over time, he has worked with top directors and built an extensive reel of quality work as well as winning LIA cinematography silver craft awards for BMW Free Diver & BMW Test Pilot. His knowledge and command of the shooting experience puts him at an advantage to really deliver on projects.
Rob has always maintained an interest in directing and become involved in music videos and co-direction of commercials over recent years, the most notable for Die Antwoord and MTN Stickies (which received a D&AD entry).
In his 2011 start as director he has already completed a mammoth cross-country shoot for SAT, a corporate Standard Bank commercial with an on-camera logistical element and a Shield Rugby sponsorship commercial with the Springboks. It's been a strong start to his launch.
Rob will continue to DP for international clients and feature films but focus exclusively on his directing career locally.
