SHE DID THAT shines a spotlight on the women in South Africa's production industry. Our hope is that this will become a talent showcase to access and discover the right people for your projects.

Sketchbook Studios signs director Ramon Mellett, ‘He’s not our funny guy’

Before becoming a commercials director, Ramon Mellet worked as an editor, photographer and DOP. This production background gives him an edge on any set. Having also worked for years as a graffiti artist in his earlier life, the non-conformist subculture has perhaps disposed Ramon to ‘keeping it real’ which is evident in his authentic approach to his visual and narrative storytelling.
