Behold, behold! Feast your eyes on all the winning work that got attention at the One Show Awards. This year, The One Club for Creativity is celebrating The One Show’s first 50 years of honouring global creative excellence. And that’s us South Africa, proudly standing amidst the mighty pillars of ‘global creative excellence.’ Congratulations to all our local winners! You have caused our desert-like dry eyes to well up with tears of joy. Bravo!
IDIDTHAT is super excited to showcase South Africa's winners and the work that won at this year's Clio Awards! Go team SA! The winners were celebrated at the 63rd annual Clio Awards hosted by Anthony Anderson on April 25th at Gotham Hall in New York City.
The 2022 Loeries Official Rankings were released last week and although we don't think awards and accolades mean everything (they're pretty cool though), they definitely get our attention when they reflect the high level of work being created by some of the talented women and non-binary people in our industry right now. Below we have showcased five of the top-ranked film directors in the country according to the Loeries. Congratulations and here's to seeing a lot more representation in 2023 💪🏾
Perhaps the most awarded South African commercials director this year, it’s becoming clear that whatever Darling director Jeana Theron touches turns (and probably converts) to Gold. In collaboration with agency Grid, Jeana's latest offering for FNB is a beautifully crafted BIG juicy bank ad that sees a rousing foot tapping, head bopping, tongue-twisting refresh for the brand. 51 scenes, 18 location moves, 50 main cast members, 1 Jeana Theron, no problem
SHE DID THAT is a female filmmakers showcase that shines a spotlight on the women in the South African production industry. Although we will only be featuring women and non-binary people, the goal is that it will encourage the inclusion of more underrepresented filmmakers across all production work created by South Africans. This month features Sandulela Asanda from Butterfly Films, Jeana Theron from Darling Films and Laurissa Vergottini from Carbon Films.
It’s here; The Official IDIDTHAT Craft Awards Rankings for 2021. Every month IDIDTHAT teams up with leaders in the ad and production industry to award the finest in South African film and production craft. These truly are the best of the best in the industry in Film Production, Post Production, Cinematography, Music & Sound, Animation & Visual Effects in South Africa.
In the last three years alone Director Jeana Theron from Darling Films has been awarded a Gold Cannes Lion and two Loeries Grands Prix. We know right, where are the headlines?! Jeana’s quiet demeanour has perhaps masked her razor-sharp edge and ability to make even the most gruesome storytelling beautiful. In our opinion, this proven versatile contemporary filmmaker has been flying way too low under the radar. So, you probably haven’t thought of Jeana like this, but you really should…
