KFC ‘Box Meals’ was awarded Best in Craft in IDIDTHAT’S Craft Awards for April 2021 by the ECD of Duke, Suhana Gordhan. Suhana commented: ‘(…)This is the kind of joy that demands repeat watching. The director could have overindulged here, milking performances and ‘hamming it up’. I like that restraint was applied and that the actors’ performances gave you just enough to want more. The food enjoyment is not hidden away and beautifully instigates the responses of the people caught in slow motion. Every choice was well considered – from art direction, to wardrobe, to music – resulting in the kind of effortless reward you want when watching a commercial.’
When Lebogang Rasethaba, director at Egg Films and Arcade awarded Bruno’s Extreme Energy ‘Unstoppable’ a Craft Mention for November 2020 he commented: ‘I have always been a fan of Bruno Bossi, firstly he has a really cool name and surname and it would be an affront to his ancestors if we didn’t see this name as often as possible. BRUNO BOSSI BRUNO BOSSI BRUNO BOSSI. But more than a cool cowboy with a fancy name he is a director who is full of surprises, has mad depth in his skills that are rooted in an understanding of the game 360. He has been around but he is still growing.’
After spending some time with the team of talent at Carbon, it’s clear that this is a film company that really does have creativity at the centre. We don’t know what the production company is pumping into its water cooler back at HQ, but this roster of directors have certainly got the industry talking. Now take your pick!
