We’re Gearing Up for Cannes Lions Thanks to Zootee Studios

Dear Cannes. Start chilling your bottles of Rosé, because iDidTht is coming!
We are slap-your-knee yippee ki-yay pointing-our-finger-guns-in-air excited to announce that iDidTht will be covering all the Cannes Lions excitement for South Africa LIVE from Cannes this year. That’s right! Schengen Visas – check baby! Thanks to our incredible sponsor, Zootee Studios (which just autocorrected to Bootie Studios, and that makes us love them even more), we will be telling the South African Cannes story.

All the glitz, glamour and hangovers.

If you, like the friendly gentlemen behind the Visa application desk, also think Cannes is in Canada #TrueStory, you’d be mistaken! The Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity, now in its 65th year, is in fact held in France #Bonjour. For those of you who have literally just been born… Winning a Lion is the ultimate accolade for those working in creative communications. Each year, panels of industry experts review and award the world’s finest creative work, setting the benchmark for the year ahead. During the Festival the global communications industry comes together in Cannes to learn, network and celebrate through a programme of talks, workshops, exhibitions and more. Great, now that we copied that from their website, onto the important stuff.

FOMO? Don’t worry, we’ve got your back.

We’ve bribed top industry leaders; Fran Luckin (CCO Grey Africa), Neo Mashigo (CCO M&C Saatchi Group), Pepe Marais (CCO and Founding Officer Joe Public United), Pete Case (CCO Ogilvy South Africa) and, Suhana Gordhan (Loeries Chairperson and Creative Director at FCB Joburg) to select this year’s South Africa’s Cannes Predictions. They are right NOW looking deep into their crystal balls and selecting the work that they think will bring home the heavy metal during Cannes. Predictions will be revealed SOON!

Don’t forget to follow our ‘Live Updates: South Africa’s Winners & Shortlists At Cannes 2018’ page from the 18th June. We’ll be updating this page as results are announced from Cannes – listing all South Africa’s shortlists, showcasing the awarded work, and featuring all the iDidTht companies involved.
You can follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or even the streets, where we’ll be bringing you all the live action and some behind-the-scenes French vibes from the Croisette!

Why iDidTht Partnered with Zootee Studios for Cannes

Guys, when you’re shooting online content, Zootee is literally THE camera and gear rental supplier you want on your speed dial. Just look at some of the shiny stuff they offer!

Zootee is perfectly set up for Indie filmmakers, online content creators, and people starting out in the industry. It’s well known that they are the most knowledgeable and friendliest team who also offer technical support and tutorials at gear checks in Cape Town #Fact. When we didn’t know how to operate that massive selfie-stick…they quickly explained what a ‘jib’ was #AlwaysLearning.

Interesting Fact: You can rent this jib. Check it out here #SponsorLove

Not only do they seriously know their gear, but you’d be hard pressed to find another camera and gear rental company more obsessed with cats! #GoodPeople

We asked Owner of Zootee Studios and bestie-to-the-industry, Stacey Keppler, why she wanted to partner with us: ‘I think it’s important to send a trustworthy team over to Cannes to bring back all the South African news and celebrate our hardworking industry. But I couldn’t find one so I decided to partner with iDidTht…jokes! Zootee Studios is always looking for ways to promote and support the industry and we feel iDidTht does the same. Also, we want future Cannes entrants, current content creators and indie film makers from SA, to rent our gear dammit!’
