WHAT WE DO

MADE ADS

While Made is primarily a commercials company, we can take a brief on any kind of idea that you can dream up. Events, online videos, memes, fake news reports (we’re not joking), and even a rumble in the Twittersphere – we find a way to make it happen.

MADE DIGITAL

Every piece we’ve made for digital media has been created based on the way that people really interact with the medium. We don’t take what we make for TV and convert it. Rather, we curate a selection of perfect frames, working within various aspect ratios, adjusting colour temperatures and reimagining titles and sound design to craft content that is not just liked, but loved.

MADE SHAREABLE

We’re a company that social media built, so to say that we understand the power of hype is an understatement. Which is probably why we’re also able to generate engaging behind-the-scenes images that are as compelling as your primary ad content.

ABOUT US

In simple terms, Made Films is a Johannesburg-based production company. It’s also the culmination of a million conversations between three people who love storytelling, filmmaking, gin-based drinks and each other’s views on the world. We like to find solutions for our clients, but we also like the idea of creating a company that makes the world a little more beautiful. Not just visually, but in all the things we do and the ways we do them. Get in touch today, to make sure it gets #MadeRight.

THE TEAM

MELANIE CURTIS

Executive Producer

There is not a lot Mel hasn’t seen, which is probably why she will always find a solution. Even if she has to find it in the dark, with no torch, in a forest with a broken compass. Mel’s ability to magic something out of nothing makes her a legendary producer and sensational salad maker.

DUMISANI MVUMVU

Producer

Dumi can produce anything. From a 60” brand film to a forest in a desert, he won’t rest till it’s done. A formidably charming force to be reckoned with, Dumi really does fulfil the requirement of miracle worker.

DANI HYNES

Director

Dani “what if we” Hynes is a fan of beauty, maths, science and finding ways to ignore the impossible. Her relentless pursuit to see things differently has led to a cinematically diverse reel filled with authentically observed performances. Her rise to directing through the shadowy halls of advertising has given her a healthy and profound respect for the idea. The tiny but mighty nucleus around which all this grows.

JAMES REYNOLDS

Director

James “Of All Trades” Reynolds has spent time in just about every department. Coming from Theatre and Performance via Street and Portrait photography to research, writing and assisting he has Made award winning short films, music videos and fashion films that explore the elemental, the visceral and the irreverent.

Not only doeswear many hats, he can also juggle them- for a small fee.

BONGANI MORGAN

Director

As an experienced and award-winning writer, director and collaborator Bongani is interested in bridging the gap between telling stories and building brands. His ability to craft resonant, authentic narratives is what Made him so attractive to us.

Part of a new breed of South African creatives who roll their sleeves up and get the job done, Bongani somehow also finds time to have impeccable taste in music and movies.
