Massïf Media director Nare Mokgotho has won two Gold Screen Awards at the Young Directors Awards (YDA) ceremony held at the Cannes Lions 2019. His two nominated films, one for Showmax in the category for Commercials and the other for the SA International Film Festival in the category for Online Branded Content, were both judged Gold winners amongst strong global competition.
Nare has been a key player in heading up the Massïf creative department for many years, learning the craft of directing until he was launched as a director towards the end of last year when he shot these - his first two films.
Peter Carr, co-owner and executive producer at Massïf, said: "They say that when you start directing, you need to hit your first one out the ballpark. Nare has hit his first two out the park. How amazing is that? Well done Nare and thanks to our amazing production team, our clients Showmax and Rapid Lion as well as all our suppliers that helped us make these winning films."
