ROB SMITH

WRITER / DIRECTOR

 
 
 
 

ABOUT ROB

I have been making short films since I was 14 years old, and have always been enchanted by the entire process of making movies.

After school I studied directing and scriptwriting at AFDA for 3 years, then went on to Velocity Films (then Africa’s biggest production company), where I worked under Keith Rose. This internationally acclaimed director mentored me and helped develop my attention to detail and passion for perfection.

In the last 6 years, I have been represented as a director by Egg, Velocity, and Carbon Films, directing commercials, music videos, documentaries and short films.

As of April 2020 I am now an independent director.

I have won multiple local and international awards including a Cannes Lion, a SAMA for best music video, and a One Show.
