Kim started his career as a fashion photographer but quickly made the transition to film – his love and fascination for the craft continues to grow with every job he does. “It is an industry that never gets old or stale, every job requires you to evolve, try something new, reinvent yourself.”
His attention to detail and concept has led to him being consistently featured at award shows around the world, winning awards at Cannes, Clios, One Show and many more– Kim has also been featured in the Gunn Report and listed in both AdAge Global and Shots publication’s Top 100 Directors.
Topsy’s ‘Selinah’ went on to win South Africa’s first Grand LIA at the London International Advertising Awards, as well as Cannes Gold and numerous other international awards, making Topsy the most awarded commercial to come out of South Africa in 2010.
Kim is the founding member of 0307Films – a leaner, meaner, more creative take on a production house that allows the team to tackle everything from photography to film. “Telling stories and meeting new challenges is what we do. Exploring new territories that are opening up throughout our industry is exciting. We want to make stuff that moves you, but more than that, moves us too. We’re new, small and nimble. We’re shooting stills, developing features, creating content and exploring new ways to tell your stories. That’s the stuff that wakes us up at 03:07.“
