Anton Visser | Director

Anton was an award-winning copywriter before he moved behind the camera in 2004. His impeccable timing and top-notch performance chops have made him a sought-after comedy director since then, while his eye for cast and knack for situational humour mean the worlds of his commercials are always fantastic places to visit.

Zayd Halim | Producer

A seasoned producer, Zayd has 16 years of production experience under his belt. He joined Velocity Films in 2005 and quickly climbed the ranks under the tutelage of mentors like Karen Kloppers, Carmen Amos and Peter Carr. He partnered with Anton in 2011 and has overseen a multitude of campaigns, content and award-winning spots since then. His production smarts, work ethic and can-do attitude make him a favourite with both agencies and clients.

Awarded by iDidTht

Special Mention: Direction Craft – Anton Visser

Telkom ‘Fridge’
iDidTht Guest Judge: Brendan Hoffmann, Group Creative Director at Publicis Machine
Awarded: June 2017

Judges Comment: “It seems like it’s been a while since I watched a funny SA ad. And this one is a goodie. The casting is great, the funny moments land, there’s a perfect amount of weirdness and the tie up at the end is rather smart. I enjoyed watching this and I’m sure the rest of the country will too.

Special Mention: Direction Craft – Anton Visser

SPCA ‘Get This’ Campaign
iDidTht Guest Judge: Tim Beckerling, Creative Director at Network BBDO
Awarded: April 2017

Judges Comment: “This campaign shows you can choose your best friend but not your family. The performances of the leads are dry, funny and real and the contrast between them and the characters that are introduced to the scenes to land the idea are nicely timed. Some good old comedy to support a cause that’s close to my heart. Cheers dudes, nicely done.
