Every month iDidTht.com teams up with an industry leader to award South Africa’s best in Film Craft. Even though July's judge doesn’t need to look at his own awards (and there are plenty) to validate his success (which is huge), we’re practically giddy when he agrees to judge ours. Thank you to the wonderful Ahmed Tilly 😘
Every month iDidTht.com teams up with an industry leader to award South Africa’s best in Film Craft. This month’s Guest Judge was John Davenport. When not polishing his roughly 20 Cannes Lions awards he’s being the badass CCO at Havas, a political writer, philanthropist, and sculptor… oh, and he also happened to put the ‘Davenport’ in Ireland/Davenport. 🔥If he wasn’t so damn nice we’d think he’s showing off.
