Film and photography production company Eyeforce welcomes South African director Ross Hillier and head of production Samantha Lowe. Both talents are ready to take on adventurous projects that will sweep you off your feet.
Co-founder Arthur Neumeier shares: “It is wonderful to grow our team with such passionate and fun people. Both Sam and Ross are very talented creatives with an eye for a high quality production.”
Ross geeks out on refining the element of natural lighting to achieve a captivating visual narrative. His projects draw on raw emotions, whether it is a fast paced campaign for athletes or a poignant piece infused with rich symbolism. With his roots in photography and his background as a DOP, his eclectic directing style is a definition of ‘look before you leap.’ From using roller-skates to building his own rig for dynamic car-to-car shots, he matured into directing not afraid to experiment with his vision to create a story that is enticing to the spectator. His power to mould the atmosphere on the set to keep a natural flow is a reflection of his perceptive, calm and happy demeanour. As a result, he accomplishes a cinematic allure, drawing from his love for South Africa, wanderlust, nature and real human connection.
Ross' debut with Eyeforce started with a dynamic project for Intersport, co-directed with Arthur Neumeier. Watch the 'Never Run Alone' campaign for Intersport here.
Taking on the role as a head of production in Cape Town, Samantha Lowe relishes joining a company that shares a passion for authentic stories. From photography to being a runner and 1st AD on the set, becoming a producer was a natural next step for her that allows her to bring all the things she has learnt in life into one role. A role that’s dynamic, energetic and wildly entertaining; a reflection of who she is as a person and as a producer. She is hard to miss in a room with her talent to elevate the shoot with her radiant energy and hearty laugh that brings a smile to everyone's face. As a head of production, she hopes to push the envelope with projects that are raw, real and impactful, as well as ensuring the production quality is taken to the next level.
