Wim Steytler
Wim kicked off his directing career winning a Cannes Lions Young Director Award and has since directed commercials across the globe from Asia to Europe. A lover of the underdog and the marginalised, Wim developed an edgy body of work that blurs the lines between narrative and documentary filmmaking. He won the Grand Prix at the Pendoring Awards in 2016 and premiered his latest short film at Clermont-Ferrand (France), the most prestigious short film festival in the world, in 2017. Wim is known for his cinematic and artful approach to capturing real moments and intimate performances, and has a talent for directing non-actors.”
Phi (Jonathan Parkinson and Nicole Ackermann)

Jonathan Parkinson and Nicole Ackermann have been working together as a co-directing team since March 2015.

With the concept of copywriter/art director in advertising, this collaboration brings 35 years of technical and VFX experience (both in camera and post production) as well as a love for performance from Jonathan Parkinson, and a very modern visual approach and great 'eye' from Nicole Ackermann, the art director side of the collaboration.

The combination is interesting as both learn from each other, and the combined strengths make for a very strong partnership in the highly competitive world of TV and online advertising.
