PROJECT: THE OSCAR PISTORIUS TRIAL
MY ROLE: ASSISTANT PRODUCER
When athlete Oscar Pistorius was arrested and accused of murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, the whole world wanted to know - was he guilty or not? Carte Blanche covered the trial live. The show 'combined state of the art of technology and vastly qualified experts to deliver, not just to its audiences but to the global media fraternity, an unprecedented view of the courtroom proceedings. The channel featured round-the-clock coverage of the trial, as well as hours of exclusive documentaries, profiles and in-depth expert analysis.' Although a local production it was aired on DSTV so had an international viewership.

PROJECT: CATCHING GIANTS
MY ROLE: PRODUCER, CO-WRITER, CO-DIRECTOR
The cold and muddy Breede River in South Africa was hiding a monster. One that was taking huge fish off fishermen's lines in one mouthful. Too cold, too muddy and too far south for the usual suspects, just what was lurking in the water? Could it be related to the monster that took six people in what came to be known as Black December in 1957 in Durban? At the time, a Great White had been blamed, but there was never any real proof. Had the monster returned? The investigation turned up some truly astonishing answers.
