Fresh Eye attracts top producer for Allais
A chance to produce for Amy Allais from Fresh Eye Film Productions lured producer Byron Grant back to South Africa from Dubai where he was producing commercials for the Middle Eastern market.
Grant says the SA film industry is much more challenging than Dubai and the opportunity to work with one of Fresh Eye's most exciting prospects was all the impetus he needed to return home. "Amy is an engaging and stimulating director who has established a name for herself in a very short space of time in a very competitive industry and that impresses me."
Working in Dubai gave Grant the opportunity to produce throughout Europe and the UK, where he rates a commercial with soccer legend Pelé shot in London just prior to the World Cup, as one of his more exciting projects.
Fresh Eye co-owner Gavin Gillespie says Byron's international experience and knowledge is just what the company needs to remain at the forefront of production in South Africa. "We are expecting great work from his partnership with Amy."
