It is extremely exciting to see that Adventures in Zambezia has become the highest grossing South African film in more than 30 years, taking more than $18 million through several key territories.* It was such an honour to be a part of the amazing team that Triggerfish Animation Studios pulled together to produce Zambezia. The focus in the studio of late however has very much been the production and completion of their second feature film, namely Khumba, which is set for release later this year I believe.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank Triggerfish Animation Studios… its been an exciting 3 years, filled with ups and downs but we made it! Two feature films is no small task I was lucky enough to work with some of the best people that South African Animation has to offer. I wish them all the best of luck and hopefully we see you all back on the farm for the 3rd film. 😉
The completion of Khumba however has allowed me to follow a dream of mine. Travel! I have a ticket booked to Bangkok as of the 18th of May 2013 and hope to spend roughly 5 months travelling, exploring and relaxing in South East Asia. Over the past year my passion for photography & videography has grown out of control and so I hope to publish a photo journal of my time in Asia. Its an Exciting New Chapter of my life, during which I hope travel changes me and allows me to grow into an even newer and more exciting future. I am going to be spending a lot of time writing, reading & learning (maybe even a new language) during my travels and who knows where we will go from here!
In the meantime, keep checking out my Twitter Feed. I will be spending the next 2 weeks filming & photographing at the Absa Cape Epic and will be sure to post images up to twitter.
