uno de waalDesign Annotator with Uno de Waal is a  new column featuring the top design work from South Africa’s biggest online creative showcase, Between 10 and 5, curated by Publisher Uno de Waal @Unodewaal

I’m really liking the production efforts behind the team that put together the Fastest Film Ever Made – the level of commitment is fantastic and the work produced is great for the constraints placed on it. We also have a quick look at some of the work produced by NATIVE, and if you find yourself in Johannesburg on the 16th be sure to check out the Postcard Revival project. The Portfolio review night coming up is also an event that we hope to see more of.

Fastest Film Ever Made

A group of 3 production agencies have tried their hand to create the fastest film ever made – within 9 days they’ve created a full length feature film that premiered at the Bioscope in Johannesburg. To help promote the event they also hosted an evening to create the fastest film poster, putting 8 creatives in a battle to produce a poster for the film. Check out more about the film here.

Rooiwolf photography studio

 Rooiwolf photography

Rooiwolf, otherwise known as Juan Voges, is a photographer based in Woodstock, Cape Town. Initially studying electrical engineering at CPUT, it was in 2003 that he bought his first camera to revisit an old school hobby.

Having always been fascinated with the camera and light, Rooiwolf began shooting portraits of friends and landscapes while travelling. During this process he discovered his love for portraiture. He says, “People’s faces and their expressions can be quite interesting and very humorous.” Through his photographs Rooiwolf is interested in presenting beauty, nature, humour and the deeper aspects of being human. He is inspired by these things as well as the dream state.

The Postcard Revival Project


14 of Joburg’s most creative residents have each contributed an original artwork to The Postcard Revival Project, depicting in a single image what makes this city unique for them. Each artwork has then been made into a limited edition postcard series.

A one night only exhibition will be held in the beautiful Barbican Building, aptly overlooking the old Rissik Street post office, on the evening of the 16 May 2013. Both the original artworks and the postcards will be on display and for sale on the night. If you’d like to attend, you must RSVP here.

You can read more about the creatives involved in the project here.

Isuzu Trail View by NATIVE

Isuzu approached digital agency NATIVE to create an exciting campaign to launch their new range of Isuzu KBs to 4×4 enthusiasts. The result is Isuzu Trail View, a Google Street View-style campaign that allows users to ‘go off-road, online.’

Isuzu provided vehicles, the Offroad Academy provided drivers and NATIVE climbed on board to map out 4X4 trails around the country with an innovative 360-degree camera mounted to the vehicle.

Portfolio night brought to South Africa


Portfolio Night is a global, annual event where aspiring young advertising copywriters, art directors and designers meet with several renowned advertising creative directors in a fast-paced evening of career-shaping advice, networking, and for some, recruitment offers. The 2013 event takes place in cities across the world on the 22nd of May.

While the event has been running for 11 years internationally, and has grown to be the biggest and best advertising portfolio review and recruitment event in the world, this year will be its first in SA hosted by advertising agency McCann in Johannesburg. Students and anyone else wanting to get involved can visit the website here.
