Anton was an award-winning copywriter before he moved behind the camera in 2004. His impeccable timing and top-notch performance chops have made him a sought-after comedy director since then, while his eye for cast and knack for situational humour mean the worlds of his commercials are always fantastic places to visit.
In 2015 Aadil left life as an agency creative (steady income, medical aid) to pursue his lifelong dream of directing. His unique style, slick visual sensibilities and gift for performance quickly put him on the map and he has fast risen as one of South Africa’s hottest new talents. That hasn’t gone to his head, however, as his legendary laid-back nature makes him a great collaborator and partner. He joined Patriot Films in 2018 and has since produced some amazing work for some pretty amazing people and brands.
A seasoned producer, Zayd has 16 years of production experience under his belt. He joined Velocity Films in 2005 and worked his way up under some of South Africa’s most notable producers before partnering with Anton in 2011. He has overseen a multitude of campaigns, content and award-winning spots since then and his production smarts, work ethic and can-do attitude make him a favourite both with agencies and clients alike.
