Let’s begin by saying this…

By the time we see it your idea’s been through a lot. It’s survived reviews, jealous glances, an array of vague, incomprehensible “feedback”. You gained kilos and lost sleep. Perhaps there is a reward out for your will to live or you compulsively Googled Hydroponic farming – whatever it took, we know it didn’t come easy. That’s why we work so hard. Cause we don’t rest till you look at it the same way you did, the first time you imagined it.

Now, let’s talk about how we get it made.

Made Films’ directing roster is getting even bigger as they welcome director James Reynolds. He first joined the company just over half a year ago as an Assistant Director to Made director Dani Hynes. He first caught the team at Made’s attention because of his experience in research, writing and assisting as well as the time he had spent in just about every production department. As an actor, he’s worked all over the world and is a skilled street and portrait photographer and award-winning short film director – a ‘Jack of all Trades’ as Dumi (Made Producer Dumisani Mvumvu) calls him.

Dani Hynes has directed Bokomo’s latest commercial; an almost 3-minute film starring a 9-year-old, her grandpa, a duck and a snail. The ad does not do much to serve the old adage ‘don’t work with children or animals’, but then again, Dani has always loved a challenge. In collaboration with agency MullenLowe, this beautiful cinematic and emotive piece of storytelling takes you on a heartfelt journey exploring two nurturing relationships and the passing on of wisdom that is sure to pluck at the heartstrings.
