bioThabang’s performance driven approach to commercials stems from a lengthy and successful career in long form film, both in front of and behind the camera. As a student he won numerous awards including Vuka awards and a Best Short Film at the Sithenghi Film Festival. His short film was selected for Cannes International Critic Week, the Tampere Film Festival in Finland, and the 16th Africa Film Festival in Milan, where he was the youngest director to compete. His extensive long form directing credits include Jacob’s Cross, The LAB and Jozi H, an international medical drama series which aired in South Africa and Canada. Since moving into directing commercials with bouffant, Thabang has worked with some of SA’s top advertising agencies. His work includes commercials for DSTV, MTN, Hansa, KFC, Melrose and Coca Cola. In 2016, he completed his first feature film, ‘Happiness is a Four Letter Word’, which broke South African box office records. His priority when approaching a script is the authenticity of every story.“It hasn’t been an easy journey,” he says. “But I’ve learned that challenges and obstacles are ultimately there to make me a better storyteller.”
