Success Stories

Julius mwaleJULIUS MWALE

My name is Julius Mwale and I am 33 years old. I started out in a junior position with Daron Chatz under the iKasi Media programme and I am now a full-time camera assistant with Call a Crew in cape town. It has been an exciting journey to reach this position and finally to work on local and international productions

Directing the Coke advertisement was an amazing experience for me. I feel blessed to have been able to work with the likes of Lika Berning, Daron Chatz and Stuart Palmer, from Lunchbox Theatre. I have learned lots of different things within a short space of time, on this job. I had previously never worked on a commercial shoot before. I learnt how to put together a director’s treatment, and how to think as a director, in terms of what shots we needed to get. I got the opportunity to work with high-end equipment, tracks and dollies, and am very excited about taking this experience and knowledge further in future projects.
