Director: Jasyn Howes

I’ve always wanted to work in narrative filmmaking. My experience thus far extends to camera work, video editing and script writing and combined I guess this gives me an edge, especially in the world of independent filmmaking on the African continent. Living and working in Cape Town has seen my career take steady flight.

Director’s Statement

I love film, and I appreciate great storytelling above all else. I hope to add value to the realm of narrative filmmaking, and look forward to the collaborations that come with being part of it.
