29 May Show & Tell 2 | An Evening of Creative Talks Hosted by 10and5
It’s Show & Tell time again! On the 11th June, 2014 we’re bringing you the second in an ongoing series of creative talks that we will be hosting throughout the year.
Sign up below.
The guest speakers who will be joining us for this edition are:
Sibs Shongwe-La Mer | Founder of the Whitman Independent. Filmmaker, Photographer, Musician.
Sibs Shongwe-La Mer is a photographer, filmmaker, musician and founder of the Whitman Independent (the list goes on!) He is currently in the production phase of his first feature film Territorial Pissings, which is an intimate exploration of the contemporary African identity. During his talk Sibs will be giving us some insight into the process of writing the first draft and shooting the first version of Territorial Pissings himself, leading up to where he is now: reinvestigating the story and re-shooting the film on a larger scale. See our interview with him which launched our 2014 Young South Africa series.
Jake Bester | Executive Creative Director at Machine
Jake Bester, the Executive Creative Director of Machine, will be talking about how agency culture doesn’t just happen. Rather, it is an ongoing process that requires a lot of structure and ongoing work. Jake will be sharing some of the techniques and initiatives that are working, as well as the key reason why Machine as an agency places so much emphasis on culture and puts so much effort into nurturing it.
Daniel De Kock and Jarryd Bekker | Makers of Afrikaburn project, Fire In The Sky
Daniel De Kock and Jarryd Bekker will be speaking about their Afrikaburn project, Fire in the Sky, and what went into creating it. Together with Daniel and Jarryd, the core team behind the project are Mechatronic Engineers who currently work in diverse fields. The main body of Fire in the Sky was an arc of balloons that stretched across the sky with a recording station at each end. Here, people could record messages and see a streak of light as the message was sent to the other side of the arc to be played to anyone within hearing distance. The artwork speaks to the archetypes of long distance human communication – capturing both the primal and modern ideas and technologies in a single piece.
Date: Wednesday, 11 June 2014
