Silver Lining Pictures’ Director Willem Grobler recently shot a two part online campaign for local men’s wear brand SERGEANT PEPPER to promote their Spring/Summer collection for 2014.

Staying true to the brand’s creed “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”, Grobler skilfully identifies and captures a day in the lives of two real working class heroes from the City of Cape Town.

Part One follows the inspiring tale of Congolese barista Ollie Balekage and his pursuit of the perfect cup of coffee.

Stay tuned for Part Two.

Silver Lining Pictures’ Director Michael Matthews and Producer Renier Ridgeway were selected to film a cinematic style three-part commercial campaign for the cell phone network ALTEL, Kazakhstan. The aim of the campaign was to showcase the mobile network’s new superior 4G capabilities.

The three part commercial campaign sees four street racers competing in high-speed action packed Hollywood Blockbuster style racing sequence with each car representing a mobile network in Kazakhstan, with the ALTEL car being the Hero.

These high-speed action packed racing sequences were shot in and around the mountain ranges of Franschoek. This was a truly exhilarating shoot with the Stunt Driver team lead by Robbi Smith, displaying amazing driving techniques and skill to achieve the desired shots.

Capturing the high-octane action was one of South Africa’s most experienced and best-known Cinematogaphers, Peter Tischhauser.

To furnish the commercials with it’s Hollywood flair , the post production responsibilities fell into the hands of Post Production Supervisor Stuart Wilson from The Stylus Group Cape Town for the Online-Edit and Grading. The Offline-Edit was done by Lucian Barnard from Deliverance, Cape Town. The epic Sound Design was produced by Morne Marias from The Sound Surgeon and the original music composed by Pressure Cooker Studios. The Stills Campaign was shot by the talented Matt Geeling.
