Hi I’m Carl, a director, writer and editor based in Southern Africa. I have worked on commercials and short films for large global brands and organisations such as ABSA, P&G, Vodafone, Jameson and UNICEF.

My work is narrative driven with an authentic touch and always culturally sensitive. 

I hold a degree in film from AFDA film school as well as a degree in development studies from UNISA. My interest in development led me to create a number of advocacy videos for UNICEF and UNTFHS. 

Having a personal relationship with multiple sports disciplines I enjoy directing sport orientated pieces. Exploring what drives sports professionals and showcasing their tenacity and discipline.

having run my own production company in Lesotho, I am highly organised and have experienced many roles such as executive producer, producer and director capacities. I am well versed in all areas of filmmaking. Regardless of limitations I know how to make do with what I have. It’s not what you got, but what you do with what you got.
