    EP 129 - King Shaft

    EP 129 - King Shaft

    King Shaft is a director, producer, and writer. He co-directed "1960" which opened this year's Durban International Film Festival and won the award for Best South African Feature Film at the fest. We chatted the morning after the opening where the elated director shared his joy over the achievement, especially since project faced a number of issues and was mostly fuelled over the finish line by passion. Shaft shares how budget limitations actually allowed them to focus more on the human stories they told rather than getting distracted by big action scenes. We also learn from Shaft's experiences directing Skeem Saam and Uzalo, and we reflect on an impressive career that spans nearly 2 decades. Enjoy.

    EP 128 - Bonie Sithebe

    EP 128 - Bonie Sithebe

    Bonie Sithebe is a director, producer, and co-founder of Durban Motion Pictures. We met up to discuss her feature film "Valley of a Thousand Hills" which is part of this year's Durban International Film Festival. It's a film she's incredibly proud of as it's taken nearly 20 years in the industry to get here. Bonie shares how her early experiences in the film industry lead to her losing her car and house, and how her tenacity carried her through the tough times. Since then, she's produced and directed a plethora of films for Mzansi Magic, written for Imbewu, and attended Cannes three times. Now she's using that experience to bring her stories to life on the big screen. Enjoy.

    EP 127 - Jet Wentworth

    EP 127 - Jet Wentworth

    Jet Wentworth is a rapper and graphic designer. While Jet's rap career started by getting booed off stage at a talent show in high school, perseverance and guidance from the OGs like T.R.O. and Illuminating Shadows lead to him joining Big Idea and eventually going solo when the band broke up. Jet reflects honestly on a rollercoaster of a career, both the highs and the lows. Jet also shares some of the dark thoughts that recent times have produced and how he now feels that the path before him is clear now that the darkness has lifted. Enjoy.

    Bonus: Hope is the Thing with Feathers

    "It's hard to be good when the good die young."

    These words, sung by Martin Barrios in City Bowl Mizers, have been going through my head a lot lately. 

    I guess this episode is kinda about that?
