DSTV ‘uMama’ and ‘Magubane’

Special Mention: Direction Craft – Teboho at Bomb Commercials

Amstel ‘The Pursuit’
iDidTht Guest Judge: Steph van Niekerk, Creative Director
Awarded: March 2017

Judges Comment: “It must have been a tricky story to tell. It’s about a man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants (Amstel) but at the same time is consciously trying to help and support those around him. How do you tell the second part of the story without breaking the pace and urgency of what is a classic car chase? Teboho finds a way and there are some lovely moments woven into the chase scene without slowing down the pace of the overall edit. (See 0:44)”

Special Mention: Direction Craft – Tebza Malope at Bomb Commercials

McDonalds ‘Love Is A Thousand Different Things’
iDidTht Guest Judge: Gordon Ray, Executive Creative Director and Founding Partner at M&C Saatchi Abel Cape Town
Awarded: July 2016

Judges Comment: “Other entries worth a mention this month are Bomb’s McDonald’s commercial. Keenly observed and beautifully paced. It’s a Jozi love story without all the clichés.

JC Le Roux ‘Release What’s Inside’
iDidTht Guest Judge: Pepe Marais, Chief Creative Officer at Joe Public
Awarded: May 2016

Special Mention: Direction Craft – Tebza Malope at Bomb Commercials

Fattis & Monis ‘Bravo Mama’
iDidTht Guest Judge:  Jonathan Deeb, Executive Creative Director at FCB Johannesburg,
Awarded: January 2016

Judges Comment: “Beautiful storytelling and some delightful performances makes this ad worthy of a special mention. Mom’s telling us why their cooking is the business more often than not lacks any sort of believability. This one has a great energy, is entertaining and totally believable.

Best Of Reel: Direction Craft – Teboho Mahlatsi at Bomb Commercials

SAB ‘Be the Mentor’
iDidTht Guest Judge: Jonathan Lang, Executive Creative Director at JWT Cape Town
Awarded: November 2015

Judges Comment: “A fresh piece of film from Teboho Mahlatsi from Bomb Commercials for ‘SAB BE THE MENTOR’. It is powerful, evocative and cuts through to speak to a young generation. Teboho has harnessed all the disciplines at his disposal. It’s real, in your face and you simply can not ignore it.

Special Mention: Direction Craft – Teboho at Bomb Commercials

Tiger Brands Morevite ‘Early Morning’
iDidTht Guest Judge: James Cloete, Creative Partner at 7dks
Awarded: June 2015

Judges Comment: “Teboho’s work for Morevite strikes a wonderful balance between filmic and real and his story telling is as moving as we’ve come to expect from him over the years, but the spell that I found myself under at the start of the commercial had worn off a little by the time it ended.

Special Mention: Direction Craft – Tebza from Bomb Commercials

DSTV ‘Isibiya Promo’
iDidTht Guest Judge: Rui Alves, Executive Creative Director at Y&R South Africa
Awarded: April 2015
