    The talented Mr Saunders brings his gifts to the latest 140 BBDO Medlemon commercial in a light-hearted, sweetly shot spot that shows off his story telling skills. Made on a tight budget with tricky logistics, the finished product shows Chris's versatility: he can tap into the mainstream and everyday as easily as he can push boundaries with the more left-field, stand-alone work he's known best for. One of Ola! Films's most promising young directors, Chris Saunders continues to push through the industry's expectations and prove that there really isn't very much he isn't capable of doing - and doing well.

      Chris Saunders heats up downtown Jozi with his latest spot for M&C Saatchi London and Ballantine’s Whisky. Saunders won the pitch against stiff international competition on the strength of his street savvy “Run through Time” campaign for Adidas, which snagged the young director a bronze Loerie this year. For Ballantine’s he recasts Joburg as Luanda and throws a wicked street party for Angolan superstar and brand ambassador DJ Alves.

                  Working with Chris Saunders, Voltaire helped to create the visual style for the first international release for Nozinja on Warp Records. Drawing inspiration from Nozinja's earlier videos that were available on YouTube, Chris came up with the idea to combine the lo-fi, "home-made" feel that Nozinja's videos had, with the high-tech digital video world. It was up to Voltaire to find a way to marry those two concepts in order to realise Chris' vision for the video, as well as deliver something that Warp Records would be pleased with as part of their visual catalogue. Part of the charm of Nozinja's previous videos was his use of green-screen, and the rough manipulation of combined environments that harked back to bad (though cutting-edge) keying effects from the 80's. Instead of setting up a flat green wall and making sure the lighting was exact, Chris had painted ordinary brick walls. The fact that the dancers were wearing green balaclavas (which we planned to key out later) with green elements in their clothing was to be part of the appeal. the "lo-fi" feel was thus taken care of. The "high-tech" components came in with the cameras Trevor Calverly shot on, as well as off- and on-lining on Final Cut Pro X. Red Epic and Scarlet footage meant that there was far more information available in the post-production process to play with and manipulate. And FCP X's ability to handle 5K Red Raw footage natively meant that there really was time available to "play" with the visual effects and comping, even if there were only a few days available. In the end, we are pleased with how the video turned out, and are proud of our part in the introduction of "Shangaan Electro" to the world! Directed By. Chris Saunders Production Company.

                    Johannesburg-based filmmaker and photographer Chris Saunders recently completed a one-year residency at Fabrica, United Colors of Benetton’s Creative Research Facility in Italy. He is currently back working in South Africa. We caught up with him to find out what he has been up to since being part of the Emerging Creatives programme in 2009 and what he thought of the experience. For Saunders, the programme exposed him to the many people who visit South Africa during the annual Design Indaba Conference and Expo. “Thanks to the exposure I received, I ended up spending a year at Fabrica in Italy”, he says. This experience was a dream come true. “I stayed for a year and was able to follow in the footsteps of my idols through working for Colors Magazine”, he adds. Saunders’s work does not focus on a concern but rather on a solution and things that are going well. I am trying to show people who are doing well, who are making beautiful things and cultures that have not been exposed to the rest of the world, but are interesting, socially relevant and contemporary, says Saunders. Saunders further speaks about the culture in South Africa and what it means to be a young South African. He also shares some thoughts on the continent as a whole: “Africa might be the next big thing to people in other countries now, but at the same time it’s always had new things happening and cultures have always been emerging”, he says. Currently Saunders is working on a book that highlights the history of Pantsula, a new language and a new way of dressing for South Africans. “Pantsula occurred when people were forced together during Apartheid and were forced to find a common ground and reinvent themselves,” he explains. Saunders’s advice for creatives is to stay busy and constantly think about what it is you want to do for the rest of your life.
