Search jobs Craft Awards August 2018: A larger than life story, a giant of a man

IDidTht's August SA Film Reel Monthly Craft Awards were judged by Kabelo Moshapalo, ECD at TBWA\ Johannesburg, who selected 'MTN Sounds the Call: The Os du Randt Story' by Ross Garrett from Darling Films for Best of Reel.
It’s tough having to talk up a project that you have close ties to, but this piece is truly epic. A larger than life story brought to life in the most fitting and meaningful way. A raw and gritty emotional journey of a legend being reborn told through captivating visual metaphors and moving sound design. An old story retold in a way that appeals to a new, younger audience.
