VW Amarok “Back to the End” receives Craft Mention in South African Craft Awards on iDidthat.co for February 2021
The South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTAs) this weekend, the debut Showmax Original, Tali’s Wedding Diary, won five awards – the most of any TV comedy.
This made Showmax the most awarded broadcaster in the TV comedy category and marked the first time a streaming service had won at the SAFTAs. “When we were making Tali’s Wedding Diary, we joked about winning a SAFTA – it seemed totally crazy given it was our first fully-fledged Showmax Original and all of us were learning as we went,” says Candice Fangueiro, head of content for MultiChoice Connected Video. “Fast-forward and we’re on stage not just winning one SAFTA award but taking home five. I’m still pinching myself.”
It’s been a good week for Sonar. Ster-Kinekor’s “The Reign Of Ian” cinema ad was recognized at The Creative Circle Awards as well as the iDidTht.com Monthly Craft Awards. Our Cape Town music composer, Chris Querido, scored the spot for Cape Town based creative agency, FoxP2. The ad was also featured on shots.net and the Little Black Book. Check it out here.
