Bridget Johnson awards this month’s best in film craft by Production Companies. She doesn’t like to brag, so we’ll do it for her: Bridget is brilliant! She’s been in the game for over 2 decades, scooped up a ridiculous amount of awards and has judged everything from Cannes to that weird hat you once wore. We bow down to her greatness!
Here at iDidTht we spare no expense, so naturally we treated Ian to some water at the Spur. It’s everything you never knew you needed to know about this award-winning film and commercial director.

Tim Beckering, Creative Director at Network BBDO in JHB, awards iDidTht’s Best in Film Craft this month. Tim is a total speed freak, like a local version of The Fast and the Furious, except Tim knows when to stop. Which is why he only chose one Best of Reel and one Special Mention campaign this month #MicDrop #Boom
Between directing and cross-dressing, this Russian still finds time to go on Tinder and sew. It’s everything you never knew you needed to know.
Every month we showcase the stand-out work that companies on iDidTht are doing. Apart from just bragging about it (which is very important), it's work that’s actually being featured at local and international award shows and that industry leaders have awarded on the SA Film Reel. It’s the work you should know about…
Multi-award winning Steph van Niekerk awards this month’s best in film craft by Production Companies. She’s a small person so you may not always see her entering a room, but don’t mess with her because she’ll throw SA’s first (and only) TV and Cinema Gold One Show statue at you.
The ninth annual IAB Bookmark Awards took place at the Galleria in Sandton and celebrated the best in digital. As usual the show was all high heels, while the after party was a salute to our industry’s low morals. As the official Showcase Partner of the Bookmarks, we’d like to congratulate all the winners, but seriously guys, what an honour to just be nominated – YEAH RIGHT!
Mike Barnwell, Executive Creative Director at FCB Cape Town, awards the best in film craft by Production Companies this month. Mike left New Zealand in 2012, sending the country into a downward spiral - it is now the 4th highest user of amphetamines worldwide. Meanwhile, since Mike moved to Cape Town, the city has been named the world’s ‘Best City’. Coincidence? We think not…
Liam Wielopolski, Chief Creative Officer at DDB South Africa, awards the best in film craft by Production Companies this month. He was ranked number 3 Chief Creative Officer at the recent Loeries rankings, but more importantly, his Avi on Twitter is an egg, he has 11 followers and his one and only tweet reads: “First tweet, yehaa!’’ - that was back in June 2011… When Liam’s not strategically questioning and undermining the conventions of social media, he’s an industry leader and you need to take note of what he rates as South Africa’s best. We’re honoured to have you Liam…yehaa! 😉
