What might have been a bleak Christmas for small-town Stanford has transformed into one of the most memorable festive seasons the town’s tourism has ever seen. Agency 99c, production company 7 Films and Checkers wanted to honour this community that stood together during the town’s recent floods by lighting up the main street with a Santa-approved lights display. Bringing a little bit of ‘xtra joy’ back to a community that nearly lost everything ended up having a lasting impact felt throughout the area.
The Storyteller Foundation announces the launch of a programme in honour of Director SJ’s legacy that aims to support exceptional talent by providing mentorship and practical experience in ALL aspects of film directing. We catch up with the founders from 7Films and top ad agency folks at 99c about how the Foundation aims to shape the future of the local film industry.
