Wavescape Project Coordination


For 6 months of 2012 Shani got to coordinate the Wavescape Surf Film festival. The festival comprised of a number of events including the Wavescape Art Board Auction. Shani took 5 boards to New York in August that were painted by some of our awesome local illustrators. The boards were auctioned off at a charity event and raised R100 000. In December we saw 10 more boards painted by another group of top artists such as Brett Murray, Guy Tillim, Peter Van Straten, and a couple of other greats. These were auctioned and exhibited at The Woodstock Exhange and raised a whopping R245 000. The festival then moved onto Clifton beach for an outdoor screening where 3000 people came out in the blasting wind. New to the festival this year was Slide Night, which was an evening of 10 talks by local ocean related speakers. Damon Foster (Documentary filmmaker), Hanli Prinsloo (11 times South African Freediving Record Holder, filmmaker and avid Ocean Adventurer
) and Conn Bertish (famed creative director, surfer and art provocateur
) were amongst the speakers. This was a great festival to work on and we will be working on it again in 2013. www.wavescapefestival.com
