ABOUT ME

E-shoot-18 (2).jpg
JACQUES POTGIETER

With over 10 years' experience as a Director, Writer and Producer; I can take the content you require and transform it into something that will be engaging, to the point and I will ensure that it looks perfect in every way possible. 

My experience lies mostly in corporate video production, factual and entertainment broadcasting and online and television promos. I have always wanted to go into film production and HETV, and that is exactly why I moved from South Africa to London; to follow that dream!

I believe very strongly in creating "movie magic" and telling stories that excite, entertain and stir up any sort of emotion inside the viewer, whether it's joy or breaking their hearts... I can tell that story for you!

The world of story-telling is lacking the element that provided people with the opportunity to escape. Remake upon remake has people terrified of creating new, original and fearless content that provokes the mind. Isn't it about time that we do that again? I can help you there!
