Another great piece of PR, thanks to Careers24!

I was recently featured as part of the #careerpride series from Career24, where they profiled my work as a Digital Strategist-turned-Producer!

Some of my favourite quotes from the article include:

Craig now finds himself taking on more responsibilities in the television industry and taking his knowledge of film, television and digital media to head up the flagship project of Okuhle Media, Hectic Nine-9.

I’m grateful for the coverage guys, thank you for setting up a stunning shoot, and managing to fit me in to your busy schedule!

Riky Rick Exodus

Directed by the renowned Kyle Lewis, Ricky Rick’s Exodus is a unique cross-pollination of genres – a mixed palette where music video meets short film. Three tracks from Ricky Rick’s album ‘Family Values’ are presented in three different vignettes steeped in myth and symbolism, each piece a stand alone narrative as well as a collective, nuanced story of catharsis.

On this production, I had the honour of working with an insanely talented team, consisting of Producer Will Nicholson, D.O.P Pierre de Villiers, Stylist Kaley Meyer, Editor Stephen Du Plessis, and a host of talent from Khayelitsha Site C, Cape Town.

Apart from the usual AD responsibilities of keeping the schedule, my other roles on Exodus included driving the bakkie, light-swinging and smoke-bomb supervision!

To date, the Awards won by Riky Rick’s Exodus include a Silver Loerie for “TELEVISION, FILM AND VIDEO COMMUNICATION: MUSIC VIDEOS” as well as a Feature on the international SHOTS website
