Awarded by iDidTht

Special Mention: Direction Craft – Karien Cherry

Sanlam ‘Tax Free Experiment’ Campaign (Directors Cut)
iDidTht Guest Judge: Donovan Bryan, Executive Creative Director at Owen Kessel Leo Burnett
Awarded: March 2016

Judges Comment: “I thought the Sanlam ‘Tax Free Experiment’ was really well told and the timing was great.”

Best of Reel: Direction Craft – Karien Cherry

New Balance ‘Baby vs Dale Steyn’
iDidTht Guest Judge: Jonathan Beggs, Chief Creative Officer at Saatchi & Saatchi
Awarded: December 2015

Judges Comment: “The outstanding TV commercial this month is not a TV commercial but an online piece for New Balance, where the world’s best fast bowler is put through his paces trying to keep up with the daily routine of a toddler. It’s an unexpected, charming idea from King James, and I suppose it was always going to be interesting (celebrities and cute kids are up there with cats as internet hitmakers) but it’s beautifully handled by Karien Cherry from Giant Films. Directing celebrities and kids (and cats) is a lot easier than watching them!”
